Doubtful, especially if you dont speak Korean. But it's worth going to Dosan Park anyway. It's one of 4 flagship H stores around the world and its huge.Hi all
I will be going to Seoul, Korea at the end of this month, does anyone know if it is possible to just walk into an Hermes store and buy a birkin over there?
Are you sure it was 35cm BIRKIN? $7000USD sounds like KELLY price BEFORE price increase in Korea. Regular leather Birkin 35cm is OVER $10000 USD(closer to $11000 USD) in Korea after price increase right now. It WAS over $9000USD BEFORE price increase already. My mom and I shop at Hermes in Korea quite often and my mom has very long & good relationship with her store.I was in Seoul last month. At Lotte DutyFree in Chongro-Gu, I saw 35 blue jean epsom phw birkin. It was around 7,000USD. SA said they get brikins occasionally, and the minute I put it down, a Japanese tourist bought it...
Anyway, Shilla DF sometimes has birkin too, GL!
Thanks for the response -Wow I didn't realize that there was so much of a price difference on the items you mentioned. I wonder if there will a big price difference for other items as well such as bracelets.I don't know how to get places by subway...we just use our car... price in Korea is MUCH significantly higher than in US...For example, my mom bought a jacket in mink at Hermes in Korea for $16500USD vs. it was $10700 in US years ago. Birkin price difference is really significant as well..leather Birkin by at least $1500-$2000USD more, ostrich Birkin by at least $3000-$4000 more, and croc. Birkin by at least $10000USD more in Korea.
BTW, H ties at Dutyfree here are more expensive(according to my SA).
DutyFree at Lotte Chong-Ro and Shilla Hotel Seoul DF have great selection.
They are the biggest ones, and easily accesible via taxi or subway.
I recommend taxi since it is not very expensive compared to London or Tokyo or NYC.
