Luxury French fashion house, Hermès, opened its first workshop in Paris in 1837. The company was founded by Thierry Hermès and he made fine horse saddles and equestrian accessories. Since then, the brand has gone on to create some of the most iconic and luxurious handbags of all time.
Their first leather handbag was created in 1922. It was a smaller version of their bag ‘Haut à Courroies’. The bag which was to go on to become the Kelly, now one of their most iconic bags, was introduced in 1935 as the ‘Sac à dépêches’. It was later renamed after Grace Kelly after she was spotted wearing the bag.
The Birkin has held its place among the most famous bags in the world since its creation in 1983, after Jean-Louis Dumas met Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. In the short flight, Birkin dropped her document case and all of her papers fell out. She explained that she needed a bag which was spacious enough for everything she needed to carry, with plenty of pockets as well. He sketched the first bag there and then, and the rest is history. Thirty-four years later, this bag has been created in a huge variety of styles and materials.
This Birkin 35 is the perfect size to carry everything you need, and comes in a stunning summer blue. The silver hardware is modern and fresh for 2017, and the leather is in perfect condition. It’s not expected to hang around long, so if you’ve been lusting after a Birkin, don’t miss your chance to buy this stunning bag which comes complete with the original dust bag.
