A BIRKIN 30 BY HERMÈS
Styled in tan Clemence leather with gold metal hardware, stamped.
Sold for $21,080 | April 2019
The Birkin reached iconic status some time ago, and its allure shows no sign of fading!
Named after the English actress Jane Birkin, the bag was created when she told Jean-Louis Dumas – then artistic director of Hermès – that she couldn’t find a bag big enough to carry her daughter’s milk bottles. Dumas went away and created a 40cm deep handbag, and named it the Birkin.
Later produced in 35cm and 30cm, like this one here, the Birkin remains one of the most sought after handbags in every Luxury auction.
