Hermes Birkin Bag
Handcrafted by the Hermes artisans in France? Finished with the iconic saddle stitching? Sometimes with diamond encrusting? And number lock and clochette keys? Does anybody want this timeless Hermes Birkin Bag? Yes! Please.
Up until now you learn that you don’t have the heart to change the classic and you never want to, the Birkin bag is such an iconic pattern blessed by the efforts of Jean – Louis Dumas. Let’s take you back to the yellow pages of this bags history, and mind you! It’s intriguing, you haven’t heard of it. So, once upon a time there was this actress and singer Jane Birkin (recall if you know her), who was going in a flight from Paris to London. Guess, who was sitting next to her? Of course, Dumas, the chief executive of Hermes. Where were we? Yes, in 1981, in the flight Jane placed her bag (basically a straw bag) in the overhead compartment of her seat. But, poor her! The contents fell mercilessly, she had to scramble and replace them. Naturally, she expressed her dilemma of not finding an appropriate weekend bag in front of Dumas.
Based on the design from 1892, Dumas hence created a bag of black supple leather in 1984, it was all for her and she used it. Since that time the Birkin bag has become Hermes icon, with the best of best raw materials and artisian being sourced for each single Birkin. In an average of 48 hours, each Birkin is gorgeously created with the inclusion of saddle stitch of 1800s. Birkins are hand-sewn, polished, painted and also buffed by a single artist who is appointed for the bag. Yup, we know, it’s truly incredible!
Search the whole galaxy out there and still, you wan’t anything even close to Hermes Birkin. It was never a handbag for people; it’s a lifestyle, an elite class tag, a fruit of labor specialisation and the ID of Hermes immortal journey of success.
So let’s get all set to slip those handles on your petite shoulder or carry your So Kelly in a messenger style! You can also remove these completely detachable shoulder straps and go a bundle on a hands-free action. These single looped shoulder straps are comfy, adjustable and can be carried smartly by the crook of your arm.
From the looks of it, it’ the most regally designed bag, especially the leather. The softness of its lush leather is totally a thing to fall for, though the bag comes in multitude of leathers, the Togo calfskin leather is the most prominent one. Touch the exclusive grained pattern of this leather with delicacy and you would instantly get what we’re talking about. Needless to say, it’s a true stunner!
Giving us the right inspiration for the rest of the fashion season, Hermes So Kelly bags are truly iconic with the familiar turn lock closure and palladium or gold plated hardware. It comes in two sizes, 22cm and 26 cm and is slight structural unlike Lindy, so you can organize your stuff in a more appropriate manner. Also, Lindy is too rounded on some people when carried on shoulder, but in So Kelly you won’t face such a problem.
This bag is super-duper comfy and the best part? Like your good old Birkin, it wouldn’t bump into random people if you stuff more, as your So Kelly bag sits flat against the body. But if you really compare the two, than you would see that So Kelly handbag is more casual than the Birkin, so you can’t wear it in your dressy occasions. Though it’s very easy to open and close So Kelly, the carrying part is a bit tough if you think about styling. Confused? Well, if the bag is left unfastened, then the straps have a tendency to stick outwards but in case of Lindy the straps lay flat.
You would be more than delighted to know that its perfect and well-organized interior completely filled the bracket. There’s a patch pocket at one side, you can simply slide in your I pad and cell phone, and the spacious interior compartment is more than enough to store all your day-to-day belongings like cash, cards, makeup, important bills, etc. On the other side you’ll find a zipper compartment to keep your cash and credit cards safe and sound.
