...they're a great investment! Hermès bags consistently outperform other luxury items year on year, beating art, gold, wine and collectible cars. I like to wear and enjoy my investments instead of having them in a bank. If you buy right, especially rare pieces in great condition – you can get a lot from your investment in years to come. I have an affinity for the Kelly over anything as I find it so wearable, practical and generally really attractive – I am currently loving my Kelly 28cm in Orange H Swift Leather with palladium hardware.
