HONG KONG.- After breaking a world record for a Hermès Silver Mini Kelly in a recent auction, renowned auctioneer Spink, French fashion expert Brand Connection, and fashion doyen Jamie Chua join forces for Spink’s second handbag sale this season, focused on rare Hermès classics.

“You are never fully dressed without a Statement Handbag” says Jamie Chua, the world’s leading collector of Hermès handbags and guest auctioneer for this star-studded occasion. The Throwback Classic – Handbag and Accessories Auction delivers Chua’s exuberance to the Christmas season with rare Hermès collectables, inspired by a harmonious balance between old and new, to deliver a one-of-a-kind shopping experience for connoisseurs.

The auction pays tribute to emblematic fashion icons in a return to the classics, with rare Hermès bags featured in shows such as Sex in the City, and designed in limited runs by fashion icons such as Jean Paul Gaultier.

Design changes over the years, yet one sees variations in shape and decoration with each new decade, and high fashion and artistry have always remained de rigueur. The Throwback Classic – Handbag and Accessories Auction will demonstrate that whatever the era, top-class handbags are first and foremost a work of art.

Building on the excitement, here are three top items that will go under the hammer:

• HERMÈS, 2010, BRAND NEW RARE BLACK BOX LEATHER KELLY SO-BLACK 32 WITH RUTHENIUM HARDWARE The So Black collection was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. When it was first released in 2010, it was discontinued and recalled by Hermès because of the delicate nature of the hardware. Starting price: HK$230,000

• HERMÈS, 2007, BRAND NEW RARE SHINY LIZARD VERT ANIS BIRKIN 25 WITH PALLADIUM HARDWARE The Vert Anis Lizard Birkin 25 featured in Sex and The City during the iconic scene where Mr Big (Chris Noth) shows Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) her closet. The crew had to hand deliver the bag back to Hermès the same day as they were only given a few hours. Starting price: HK$150,000

• HERMÈS, 2017, BRAND NEW SPECIAL ORDER BLUE ELECTRIC/ ROSE AZALEE EPSOM KELLY 2 SELLIER 28 WITH PALLADIUM HARDWARE Hermès use a horseshoe stamp for their special order handbags. The Hermès family built a reputation in the 19th century for its sought-after saddlery, made to order for aristocratic riders. Established in 1837, the leather goods workshop first made harnesses and bridles for carriages. Starting price: HK$145,000
