Birkin went on to discuss with Dumas her difficulty in finding a leather weekend bag
It is named after British-born actress and singer Jane Birkin, a longtime resident of France. Refer to it’s origin, there is a little story: one day of 1984, while the famous celebity Jane Hermes Belt seated next to Hermes CEO Jean-Louis Dumas on a Paris to London flight, she opened her Hermes-made datebook and a flurry of loose notes fell to the floor. Dumas surprised with that. He took her datebook and returned it a few weeks later with a pocket sewn into the back (which has since become standard). Birkin went on to discuss with Dumas her difficulty in finding a leather weekend bag and at his prompting, described her ideal. Shortly thereafter, the Hermes Purse she described arrived at her flat with a note from Dumas. The creation of Birkin extended her affairs.Hermes continues to implement its traditional techniques into its creations and becomes an eternal dreamlike brand in fashion trade. Especially Hermes Birkin, it has become a symbol of luxury. Maybe you can still remeber one piece of news about it in 2006: actress Lindsay Lohan’s orange Birkin bag was reportedly stolen at London’s Heathrow Airport. From then on, people drew further attention to the bag.
