Hermès's iconic Birkin and Kelly bags — of which Kris Jenner famously has a whole closet — aren't easy to get your grubby, calloused hands on. The process for obtaining a Birkin, specifically, is quite extensive, and includes being placed on a waitlist for up to six years (which you can manipulate if you rack up other purchases within the company). But on Wednesday, Fashionista received a tip from Haute Écriture that Saks Off Fifth was cheating the system, per se, and not only selling both Birkin and Kelly bags, but also selling them at a discount.
And you know what, our tipster was spot-on! Saks Off Fifth is, in fact, selling six Birkin bags and four Kelly bags in varying colors, all of which appear to discounted by — wait for it — three whole cents.
There's this yellow Kelly, which is $13,499.97 from its original price of $13,500.
And this blue Birkin with palladium hardware, priced at $16,499.97 from $16,500.
And! How about this classic black $19,499.97 Birkin that saves you — you guessed it! — three cents?
According to a Saks Off Fifth spokeswoman, this is not a new offering as vintage Birkin and Kelly bags are available for purchase on the site on occasion. This time, the inventory is limited, but we've reached out to Saks Off Fifth to see just how limited that is. In the meantime, go ahead and break out your budget; maybe you can swing this five-digit purchase now that three cents is sliced off.
Note: This story has been updated to include confirmation from Saks Off Fifth that this is not a new offering and that the bags are vintage.
