During my hunt for inspiration, I came across an interesting article. The writer made me stop and think. Of course as a Hermes fan, I am totally against it. But who knows what you might think. His article started with the headline: ‘’Has Hermes Birkin Bag lost its appeal?’’ and on the top of that, he supported his opinion with a few strong convincing points. Well, is he right?
A few bullets:
• If Birkin was so expensive and hard to get, why do so many woman – and men carry them?
• Too many people who are not fashionable have it. And they carry it everywhere.
• A Birkin cost thousands of dollars. It represent success, achievement and status.
In some way, I do agree with the writer. Why do so many actually carry Birkin and why are they available in all kinds of colors, shapes and materials. From what I heard, Celine has a serious buyer restrictions. Some people are saying that you can only buy one Celine bag in x amount of time, and they track you! But why? Because Celine doesn’t want their bags to end up on Ebay or in a luxury bag store selling for a premium price. Isn’t it time for Birkin to limit their supply, so that the proud owner can say: ‘I have a Birkin, and it’s hard-to-get’’.
