The Birkin Bag became an instant icon – introduced to the brand in the 1980’s and named after English actress/singer Jane Birkin. Apparently, Ms. Birkin had a mishap on a plane – when she tried to fit her ubiquitous straw bag into an overhead compartment. The bag’s contents spilled all over the floor, which made Birkin verbally express frustration about not being able to find THE perfect stylish yet practical travel bag. Ms. Birkin coincidentally sat next to the Axel Dumas, the CEO of Hermés. As complete strangers, they sketched the perfect bag together for the duration of the trip. One year later Mr. Dumas presented “The Birkin Bag” whose chic sophisticated design was also spacious for every day use.
