MOST females and some males have no problem spotting this Holy Grail. The Birkin.
For the one or two people on the planet who are not familiar with Hermes, or with the Hermes Birkin. A brief synopsis:
Very brief, as this is right off the top of my head. Hermes, like all leather goods crafters, started as makers of saddles, bridles, etc. Later, like Louis Vuitton and countless others started making bags. And some of these bags became widely sought after by the rich and famous and then something magical happens….one special lady is spotted with a bag and it takes off like a rocket. No, I’m not talking about the Hermes Birkin…yet. I’m talking about the Hermes Kelly. Princess Grace was photographed using the bag in a lady-like fashion to hide her pregnancy. And then boom! The Kelly was born officially.
Legend has it, that Jane Birkin was on a plane with her Kelly talking to a gentleman sitting beside her about how she wished it was much bigger! “I cannot possibly put all my things in there, especially for travel!”. The man sitting next to her was, you guessed it, Hermes. He designed another bag, differently cut than the Kelly and roomier. He made a huge one for Jane (about the size of a modern-day carry-on bag) and named it the Birkin ..after her. She still has it, I’m told…covered with stickers and the like. Luckie duckie.
