History of the bag: Hermès Birkin

The ultimate fashion symbol, the bag every woman dreams about; the Birkin Bag. This insanely popular Hermès bag is on many wish lists all over the world! It all started in 1981, when English actress Jane Birkin and Jean-Louis Dumas, the then chief executive at Hermès, met on a flight from Paris to London. Jane Birkin expresses how she can’t find the right bag to carry everything she needs, and so they start to design the first ever Birkin bag.
