Actress Jane Birkin replaced her old straw purse with a leather Hermès number in 1984, and started the rage that is the Birkin bag. Today the highly coveted Birkin continues to have the longest waiting list of any luxury accessory and has become a cultural symbol of privilege and celebrity.
The Hermès Birkin bag is the ultimate luxury accessory. It is, unquestionably, the most sought after bag in the world, impossible to find in boutiques, lasts forever, and never goes out of style. The bag is recognizable, but understated, and is at the height of the fashion world. This particular example is a 35cm Birkin finished with Black Clemence Leather. The hardware is palladium. The bag can be carried by hand or on the arm. It can be used closed, open, or over-stuffed. The interior is done in complimentary Black Chevre Leather with one slide pocket and one zipper pocket. Bag is accompanied by a Hermès large dust bag, lock and key set with clochette and small dust bag, Hermès box and protective rain coat.
