Perhaps one of the oldest and most expensive brands in the luxury fashion category is Hermes of Paris, or simply Hermes. It was founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermes and has since become known for its products’ top-quality leather and fine craftsmanship. Hermes has, after all, developed one of the most expensive and sought after bags in the world, the Hermes Birkin, named after English actress Jane Birkin, who co-designed the bag. The Birkin, just like all the other products of this revered brand, sports the H logo on its padlock. The H is displayed prominently in the other bag designs, particularly the Evelyne III bag. That trademark H will forever symbolize luxury and class.
