Since 1837, the Parisian luxury goods company Hermes has made the most exclusive, most coveted bags in the world. So high is a Hermes handbag, that they even dissed Oprah (and course found out that nobody is bigger than Oprah). The Birkin bags (named after British actress Jane Birkin) and the Kelly bag (named after screen goddess and princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly) are two of the most expensive (upwards of $5000) and hard-to-get bags in the entire world. The French company is also known for their exquisite silk scarves.
