Hermes Birkin Bag

Victoria Beckham has all the Birkin bags in every color!

During a 1981 airplane flight, Jane Birkin's over-stuffed purse spilled out into the vicinity of Jean-Louis Dumas-Hermes, which gave Mr dumas-Hermes an idea. Three years later, Hermes introduced a bag that was based on an 1892 design. It was large and meant to accommodate Jane Birkin's modern lifestyle. In a wonderful bit of irony, Birkin confessed that she stopped using hers, for she felt it was hazardous to her health.

"I told Hermes they were mad to make it. My one was always full, and it ended up giving me tendonitis."
