Tag Archives: Bringing Home the Birkin

are Birkins over?

In 1984, Hermès named the Birkin bag after the impeccably chic Jane Birkin after her fortuitous run in with the chairman of Hermès on a Paris-London flight.At one time, the Birkin was the most coveted handbag in the world due to its scarcity and expense.

It is a beautiful bag, but how exclusive can it really be when Lindsay has one….

and Posh has several….

and even this hot fucking mess has more than a few?

Nevertheless, if you still find Birkins interesting check out Bringing Home the Birkin by Michael Tonello.  This book contains all the dirt on getting a Birkin and demystifies the unusual (but brilliant) anti-marketing culture over at Hermès.
