Shloka Mehta, the daughter-in-law of Nita and Mukesh Ambani, recently made a rare appearance when the family went to visit an art exhibition in Mumbai. The viral photo and the video of three prominent ladies associated with India’s richest family sparked off pregnancy rumours with many speculating if Shloka, who married Akash Ambani in March this year, was already pregnant. Soon, the conversation on social media shifted to Shloka’s handbag that the Ambani bahu carried with her during her recent outing.
Shloka was accompanied by mother-in-law Nita Ambani and Radhika Merchant, who’s dating Anant Ambani, another son of Mukesh Ambani. The striking aspect of Shloka’s attire was the Hermes Birkin handbag. She was dressed in a simple white half-sleeved top and a floral asymmetrical skirt. Mother-in-law Nita Ambani had chosen to wear a similar white three-quarter sleeved top with a white and brown gharara style pants. Her would-be bahu Radhika Merchant was seen in a pink long-sleeved knee-length dress.
The handbag carried by Shloka was Hermes Birkin, which appears to be the favourite brand for the Ambanis. According to Christie’s website, a similar-looking bag belonged to the collection of Hermès, 2014, An Orange H Swift Leather Constance Elan Bag and was being sold for Rs 10 lakh.
However, it’s quite possible the handbag carried by Shloka could be from the Hermès Graphite Porosus Crocodile Constance Elan Bag collection (see below) with only difference in the colour of the bag. In that case, the bag would cost more than Rs 30 lakh.
However, a report by Free Press Journal said that the handbag sported by Shloka was a Hermes Orange Poppy Evergrain Leather Constance bag from the 2017 collection. Embellished with gold hardware, the bag cost around Rs 6.6 lakh!
Nita Ambani too was recently spotted carrying a handbag from the same brand when she visited England during the World Cup. Her handbag seen during a group photo with Karishma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan was believed to have cost her in excess of Rs 3 crore.
