The world is well acquainted with Dubai’s love for opulence. From magnificent skyscrapers, a luxurious dining scene, and majestic malls, the Emirati land has it all! And displaying yet another example of its luxe tastes is this Hermès Birkin bag that is crafted from 18-carat gold.
Created by Debbie Wingham, the Birkin is cast in real gold from a 3D printed master. It costs a whopping $1 million and will be on display at the Sofitel Obelisk in Dubai until Friday, November 12, 2021. It will then head over one of Wingham’s private collectors’ home in Abu Dhabi, who has already purchased it.
And it isn’t the real gold Drip bag that reflects Dubai’s grandeur. Recently, the artist created an exquisite photo frame that is encrusted with 10,000 diamonds and features a painting of the country’s iconic skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. The piece is also touted as the most expensive picture frame in the world.
Another creation by the artist includes the melting platinum clock charm that comes with a mother of pearl face finish and iconic Salvador Dali references for those intrigued by his work. Wingham has also created another limited-edition electroplated version of the Drip Bag in rose gold with a platinum finish.
It is also worth noting that the artist continues to hold the title of owning the world’s most expensive bag from 2019, priced at $750,000 (Dhs2.75 million). It’s hardly a wonder then to see the Hermès Birkin in gold coming from her kitty!
