Description

This Birkin30 Togo Etoupe PHW is in Etoupe togo leather with palladium hardware and has tonal stitching, front flap, two straps with center toggle closure, clochette with lock and two keys, and double rolled handles. The interior is lined with Etoupe chevre and has one zip pocket with an Hermès engraved zipper pull and an open pocket on the opposite side.

This Birkin is crafted of Etoupe coloured Togo leather. Much has been said recently about the dominance of Etoupe among other Hermès greys. A shade that deftly straddles grey and brown, Etoupe is the most common grey on the secondary market, comprising around 2% of all Hermès bags sold at auction. In production since at least 2004, Etoupe has become part of the permanent collection of Hermès colors, along with Black, Gold, White and Rouge H and has made steady increases of around 4% year over year.

Togo leather is another classic option for Birkin Hermès. Introduced in 1997, this calfskin leather was named after the Togolese Republic in Africa. This leather is the result of an intensive drumming process that brings out the material’s natural features. Togo is a supple, matte material, but becomes shinier and softer over time. It has a round and irregular grain with pronounced veins and wrinkles. This material is also scratch resistant — a major perk for both collectors and those searching for a durable Hermès bag.

The Birkin Hermès bag is an icon in the fashion world, highly sought-after by celebrities and the handbag-obsessed. The Birkin Hermès design is a collaboration between Jane Birkin and Hermès CEO Jean-Louis Dumas. Before the Birkin bag, Hermès was already well-established as a house of luxury leather goods, catering to their elite clients’ needs. Today, of course, with the preeminence of the Birkin, Hermès has become the preeminent luxury handbag design house — the maker of the most coveted handbags on earth.

This story begins with the chance encounter between It-Girl Jane Birkin and Jean-Louis Dumas, the artistic director and CEO of Hermes. The two met on a flight from Paris to London in 1984. Birkin confided in Dumas that she lacked a purse with appropriate functionality for her fast-paced lifestyle. Out of this conversation, the icon was born.

Having instantly captivated the hearts of many ever since its release after three years of assiduous crafting, the Birkin bag has doubtlessly become one of the most timeless pieces in the course of fashion history. Its roomy interior made it an ideal jet-set option, and the lock meant it could be securely carried closed during travel. The clean lines, minimalist style, and casual flair perfectly captured Birkin’s personal style. She was gifted a 40cm Birkin, which she individualized with stickers. It retailed for about $2,000. In 2011, Jane Birkin sold her original, well-worn bag at auction for more than $162,000 to support earthquake relief efforts in Japan.

Today, the Birkin bag comes in sizes 25cm, 30cm, 35cm, and 40cm and in a variety of leathers and exotic skins.

Actor and singer Jane Birkin with her casual, high-low look was described for decades as the epitome of French style. On July 16 2023, we lost the icon. The Anglo-French actress, singer and fashionista passed away at the age of 76 in her Parisian home. However, with her signature tousled bangs, under-eye mascara and classy wardrobe, there will always be a designated place for her in the world of fashion. Her legacy lives on and will remain engraved in the essence of French fashion. And whilst Jane Birkin may no longer be with us today, she will certainly be reinstated to the forefront of our minds whenever we spot the Hermés house icon.

The Jane Birkin bag is a part of fashion history and remains the “icon” bag, enjoying a popularity greater than ever. Hermes only makes a limited amount of Birkin bags per year as part of their scarcity marketing strategy. Buying a Birkin directly from Hermès requires an extensive purchase history with the brand, and the style of the Birkin delivered to the boutique is rarely known ahead of time. As a result, customers must either make do with available Hermès Bags or patiently wait for the style they want to become available.
