If you had to name the world's most valuable handbag, the Hermès Birkin would probably come to mind—and rightly so. After all, a diamond-encrusted version of the bag set the record earlier this year for the most expensive handbag ever sold at auction (ringing in at just under $222,000).
But according to Vogue, a different iteration of the iconic accessory "may very well surpass" that price. Vogue says the bag is a 35 centimeter amethyst porous chocofile Birkin with white gold and diamond hardware. It will be up for grabs at Christie's upcoming handbags and accessory auction set for December 11 in New York.
