1984 the birth of something  every  fashionista wants to get their perfectly manicured mitts on

French actress  and uber chic  icon Jane Birkin, was totting a straw  bag around town, when true  genius  Jean-louis Dumas, came up with  the idea of a Chic tote for Jane  to carry. So born was the name sake Birkin, the world to be forever  changed ( for good may i add).

Forward  many years  and its not  only  still going  ,uts a truly  desired  bag with  cult status,  in many rare/ exotic  skins and a aray of colours  and in several  sizes, this is not  a bag  its a BIRKIN. Toted by many celebrity icons ,  including  fashion  royalty Victoria  Beckham, whom is well stocked  on  this tote, reportedly  having the largest collection. Known to have rare skins  such as my personal  favourite  , a burgundy  crocodile,  utter perfection,  a white  Croc  in crusted with  diamonds  on  its hardware,  Tor is not messing  around. Even  many Male celebs tote the HAC the big sister  or  some with  the 40cm Birkin,  marc jacobs seen often proudly  with  his.

Now with  a price tag that  may put some people  at bay. This stunning forever  piece  is hand made.and is said to be traceable to the actual  person  whom made her,due to their  work. Which  in  my eyes makes it even more special.

Many cool and edgy artist have painted  on  to  the leathers  of these  totes. Known Kim K has a Hac adorned  with  nude ladies,(hand painted by artist George Condo)  Lady Gaga has a studded  one. now i find it interesting to look at, but the phrase “guilding a lilly ” comes to mind, these bags are perfectly amazing as they are without the adnornment.
Hermes a brand with such elegance but mass appeal, as most aspire to own or be filled with a life of H and it’s Birkin’s and Kelly ‘s yet another flawless creation, named after grace Kelly, one of my all time style icons .
Forever to be on the top of many wishlists, this is a true icon , in its own right, with the most incredible history and no doubt future.
