To say that the existence of the “Birkin”, one of the most sought after luxury bags in the world, is due to the chance meeting of two individuals on a plane. In 1984, during a flight from Paris to London, the famous Jane Birkin spilled her handbag. She then complained to her neighbor. How to find a bag that is both elegant and adapted to her needs as a young mother? Fortunately, her neighbor was none other than Jean-Louis Dumas, the manager of Hermès (1978 – 2006). The genius immediately drew him THE tote bag to which he gave his name. With its rectangular shape, its flap to close it, its compartmentalized interior and its two rigid handles, this bag is perfect for everyday use!
