Auria used old headphone wires to give them new life and purpose in these goods. The company has gone on to design lime yellow passport covers, viridian blue cellphone cases, charcoal black beach sandals, Bordeaux pink sunglasses cases, and cinnabar red beach bags that match up to the vibrant colors that the new wireless headset line brings to the table.
Dina Auria said, “The opportunity to partner with Sony on such an innovative project was amazing. I am a long term champion of sustainable fashion, and the headphone wires have been a great material to upcycle and design with. They have made really fun, colorful and durable travel products.”
We consider a true investment to be those bags you can purchase today and sell a few years down the road for a profit. If you’re in the market for a handbag that will give you the possible highest ROI (Return on Investment), look no further than an Hermès Birkin. If you haven’t already, you should read the New York Times article on the world’s most expensive handbag ever sold (as of June, 2016) titled “Who Would Pay $300,000 for a Handbag?”
Before 2004, Hermès handbags could be purchased at retail for about $5,000. Today, a Birkin from the Hermès boutique can cost upwards of $10,000.
“Birkins have climbed in value by 500 percent in the last 35 years,” says the author, “an increase expected to double in the next 10 years.”
Hermès Special Order Horseshoe Birkin
However, not all Birkin bags fetch such high prices when it’s time to resell. The ones that sell for more than double their current retail prices are the rare, the custom, and the collectible. Why? Because only Hermès’ top clients have to access to these bags, which make them all the more desirable, therefore driving up the price.
“One of the most coveted types of Birkins is the Horseshoe Stamp Birkin,” says PORTERO‘s Senior Director of Handbags and Accessories, Elizabeth Bernstein. “These are Birkins that are only made for Hermès’ top tier clients. They are custom designed by the client to be the exact color or colors, leather or exotic skin, and type of hardware that they so desire. On top of getting to customize a Birkin, Hermès puts a small horseshoe stamp next to the Hermès Made in France stamp, to let the rest of the world know how special their client really is.”

Other designer bags that yield an extremely high return on investment are Limited-Edition Birkin and Kelly bags. Two of the most noteworthy bags made in more recent years are the Himalayan Birkin and the So Black collection. Only a small amount of bags were released and sold to VIP Hermès clients, making them extremely desirable, and selling at more than double the retail price in the secondary market.

Chanel Brasserie Gabrielle Plate Minaudière
Another good investment is Chanel. Their Classic Flap Bag alone has increased 40% over the last five years. When it comes to seeing even more of a ROI, the limited-edition Chanel handbags perform very well in the secondary market. Chanel’s top clients are able to get their hands on these handbags, making them sell out quite quickly. Once they sell out, they immediately become collectibles, and sell in the secondary market for a premium, sometimes for that very same season. As people purchase these collectibles on websites like PORTERO, the items become less available, and thus more rare; further driving the price up.
To summarize, if you’re looking for a great designer handbag to invest in, your best options are limited-edition and/or custom Hermès Birkin and Kelly bags, and Chanel bags, especially limited-edition minaudières from the runway shows.
