The Hermes Birkin Bag...

... a girl classic MUST HAVE bag but do you know all the beauty behind it. 



* Handmade in leather and named after actress and singer Jane Birkin
* The bag is a symbol of wealth due to its high price and elusiveness to the public
* Its prices range from $9,000 to $150,000
Costs escalate according to the type of materials. 

History


* In 1981, Hermès chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. 
* Birkin explained to Dumas that it had been difficult to find a leather weekend bag she liked. 



*In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her. She used the bag for herself then later changed her mind. Nevertheless, the bag has since become an icon.

Design

* The bag also has a variety of hides such as calf leather, ostrich, crocodile, and lizard.
* One of the most expensive is saltwater crocodile skin.
    * The bag has a lock and keys plated with gold or palladium to prevent tarnishing. 
    * Hardware is updated regularly to maintain the top quality available in the industry at time of production. 
    * The metal lock may be covered with leather as a custom option. Diamonds are another custom addition.
    * Hermès offers a "spa treatment" – a reconditioning for overly used bags.

    1. トリーバーチ フラットはカジュアルもフェミニンにもピッタリなので、多くの女性に愛用され、出番の多い靴です。今年のブランド品は鮮やかなデザインが多いですが、あえて流行に左右されない、地味すぎず鮮やかすぎずのフラットを設計した。トリーバーチはお出かけにピッタリ、全体性から考えて、足に負担を掛からないように仕上げた、長時間歩んでも全然大丈夫。
