You Can Totally Afford a Birkin Bag—If It's Made of Lego

The Hermes Birkin bag is the handbag holy grail. One costs as much as $150,000 and for years you'd have to sit on a lengthy waiting list just for the right to buy the pricey purse. The list no longer exists, but even if you're lacking an extra stack of cash you can have a Lego Birkin bag right now. » 12/07/12 10:40am 12/07/12 10:40am

It appears that the latest must-have feature on luxury watches isn't dozens of tectonic plates; dinosaur bone fragments or the kitchen sink—it's the ability to stop the time.

Leica M7 Hermes Edition: Your Bank Account Can't Handle This…

Usually we don't bother with stupid-high-end gadget editions, because they're retardedly expensive and usually garish and ugly to boot—but the recently rumored Leica M7 Hermes edition is absolutely gorgeous and only slightly sillier-priced than the plain-jane M7 anyway. » 11/16/09 7:40pm 11/16/09 7:40pm

This Is My Dream House, Except It's Not a House

I want to live here. Spacious, sunny apartment, hard wood floors, glass and steel. Except that this is not an apartment. It's not even a building. It's the strangest yacht I've seen, as these pretty shots show: » 10/02/09 11:40am 10/02/09 11:40am

The latest HTC phone with a slide-out keyboard is the HTC Herald, the successor to the HTC Hermes. The Herald is thinner, at 18mm versus the Hermes' 22mm, but vomits a camera and some processor power to do so. Luckily for us, everything else is the same.
