Celebrity dermatologist Vicki Belo received a customized Hermes Kelly as a Christmas gift from her husband Hayden Kho Jr.
On Instagram, Vicki uploaded a video of her unboxing the special gift on Christmas eve.
The beauty doctor said she couldn't wait until Christmas to open her husband's gift.
"We have to open our gifts na! Usually, we wait 'til 12 midnight but wala... So of course, the most exciting gift is my husband's gift to me, which is an Hermes bag, I'm sure. Because he knows that that's what I really, really like."
After opening her gift, the beauty doctor showed her orange-and-amber-colored Hermes Kelly bag, with purple stitches.
According to Vicki, her husband ordered not just one but two customized Hermes Kelly bags for her.
It took Hayden a year to get one customized Kelly bag.
She said, "Did you know that for every six Birkins, only one Kelly is made?
"That's why it's so much harder to find a Kelly than it is to find a Birkin.
"And when you go to Hermes, there's never any."
Vicki said she prefers bigger-size Hermes bags to put her stuff in.
She explained, "The 25 is more popular, but I think I like the 30. Well, I don't know the numbers [sizes], because if not, you can't put anything inside. It's only pang-porma. I'm practical."
Hayden's gift is Vicki's second customized Hermes Kelly bag. Her first is a two-toned Hermes Kelly bag that she posted on Instagram as part of her OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) in November 2018.
In a previous interview with Preview.ph, Vicki revealed that Hermes Kelly bags are offered only to "certain Hermes bags buyers," and only those on the VIP list of Hermès can order a customized Kelly bag.
Also, the process to get on Hermès list can be daunting.
According to Pursebop.com, the average price tag of a 32cm Hermes Kelly bag starts at $11,000 or around PHP560,000. The price can go higher depending on the materials used for the bag.
