The iconic Hermes Birkin bag, originally designed for the actress Jane Birkin, is now one of the most desirable and sought after bags in the world. A firm favourite of celebrities worldwide, the Birkin bag exudes class, elegance and luxury. According to Hermès lore, the idea for the brand’s Birkin bag came from a serendipitous airplane encounter in 1981 between the stylish chanteuse and Jean-Louis Dumas, the late chief executive of Hermès. The well-known story involves Ms. Birkin spilling the contents of a straw tote bag everywhere, inspiring the French label’s executive to create a bag that would be suitable for jet-setting women with too much to carry. Four years later, their airplane ‘collaboration’ resulted in what we now know as the Birkin bag. The bags are handmade in France using the company’s signature saddle stitching, developed in the 1800s. Each bag is hand-sewn, buffed, painted, and polished, taking several days to finish.
