From her extravagant birthday celebration to her recent engagement with her new beau – it seems that 2021 has been an exciting year for her. But if there’s one thing the heiress is known for, aside from being a savant in cosmetology, it would have to be her extensive collection of luxury goods. More specifically, her bags.

In our recent interview with Kim herself, she shared about her constant pursuit of growing her bag collection as well as her favourite pieces in her wardrobe. Bare-faced and cosily clad in a Christian Dior pyjama set, Kim took us through the bags she can’t seem to get enough of.

In the video, Kim Lim shares about her favourite go-to work bag and it was none other than the Chanel Classic Handbag.

The heiress shares that she loves the bag for its versatility of which she’s able to pair it with her pyjamas or even with a more formal look. A true embodiment of the CHANEL allure, the bag boasts timeless elegance and goes well with just about any outfit in your wardrobe.

Black bags can be pedestrian over time. But if you have one that’s just as chic as this Dior number, it becomes exciting.

Adding on to her collection of vintage bags, this Mini Box Bag is hard to find in the market, which makes this investment piece even more special. Kim Lim shared that she found the Mini Box Bag from a shop in Japan.

It’s safe to say that the Hermes Himalaya Kelly Bag is a holy grail for any handbag collector. Boasting a superlative design and crafted from Nile crocodile hide, it’s clear how this bag is fabled as one of the rarest handbags in the world.

Aside from its rarity and exquisite craftsmanship, Kim Lim explains how the bag also holds a lot of sentimental value as it was presented to her as a gift from her father, Peter Lim himself.

The Kelly Pochette might just be more rare than a Birkin or Kelly bag – especially if the bag comes in favourable colours or in gold hardware just like the one Kim Lim has. A rare find, this bag is hard to come by, and is not available for purchase online.
