The Birkin Bag, manufactured exclusively by Hermès, is well known for its exceptional design and exorbitant cost (ranging from $10,000 to $60,000. Hermès refuses to announcehow many Birkin style bags it produces each year as it restricts its inventory to theprivileged and celebrities. (Victoria Beckham is said to have a collection worth £1.5 million). Such control has kept the Birkin Bag one of the most coveted and unavailable extravagances. The Birkin Bags’ value increases in value by 14.2% on average by year, which actually makes it a better investment than stocks and gold.
English actress, singer, and songwriter Jane Birkin inspired the Birkin Bag. In the early 1980s, then Hermès chief executive, Jean-Louis Dumas was on an Air France Flight from Paris to London. As if it was destiny, Birkin was upgraded and assigned the seat beside Dumas. Birkin, who was often photographed carrying a whicker basket, recalled that her husband had run over her current basket with his car. When Birkin spilled the contents of her crushed basket, Dumas suggested she needed a bag with pockets.At the time, Birkin did not know who she was sitting beside and said, “The day Hermès make one with pockets I will have that.” Dumas then said, ““But I am Hermès and I will put pockets in for you.” The two then went on to discuss Birkin’s ideal bag and Dumas proceeded to design the bag for women with too much to carry. Birkin also recalled that Dumas drew the scheme on the “sick bag.”Hermès continues to give Birkin an annual royalty check for the handbag, which Birkin donates to charities.
