The Hermès Birkin bag is perhaps the brand’s most famous item. The Birkin bag was made for and named after the fashion icon and British actress Jane Birkin after she complained to the Hermes creative director at the time, Jean-Louis Dumas, that her handbag was not practical enough.
So Jane Birkin was invited to France to design her own bag, and in 1984, the Birkin bag was born. Now, a Birkin bag has become a status symbol, with Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Lopez often seen carrying one.
A Birkin bag is characterized by two leather top handles, a belt around the top, and a clochette – this Birkin has been expertly crafted from Matte Alligator Skin but there are lots of different leather to choose from.
