Description

This Birkin40 Togo Black GHW is in Black togo leather with gold hardware and has tonal stitching, two straps with front toggle closure, clochette with lock and two keys and double rolled handles. The interior is lined in black chevre with one zip pocket with an Hermes engraved zipper pull and an open pocket on the opposite side.

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 in 1983, 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. Actor and singer Jane Birkin with her casual, high-low look was described for decades as the epitome of French style.

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.

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 Birkin Hermès delivered to boutiques is rarely known ahead of time. As a result, customers must either make do with available Hermès Bags Birkin or patiently wait for the style they want to become available.
