In 1983, Hermes executive, Jacques Doillon sat beside singer, actress Jane Birkin on an airplane. When she spilled the contents of the basket she used to carry her belongings, she groaned aloud, “Bags never have enough pockets!” Inspired, Doillon introduced himself. He would design her “dream handbag.”She told him the features she wanted. The finished product, which he named after her,included pockets and lots of space. Thousands of women wanted it.
In nearly thirty-five years, the design of the Birkin, except perhaps for the lock and assortments in sizes, hasn’t changed. Depending on certain customer requests, any embellishment can be added, even jewels and gold. When Kanye West specialty ordered one as a Christmas present for Kim Kardashian, he had it custom painted with nude figures. Kim also uses a Birkin as a diaper bag and another as a gym bag. She was even spotted spending $100,000 purchasing seven Birkins at one time. In fact, all of the Kardashians love Birkins. Khloe also has a custom painted Birkin with a Monopoly board game motif, created by graffiti artist Alec Monopoly. Kris Jenner has a closet dedicated specifically to Birkins.Kourtney Kardashian and even daughter, Penelope, have their own Birkins. Kylie got one for her eighteenth birthday and Kendall was photographed totting a mini one. It’s hard “keeping up” with that clan.
Birkins typically cost between $12,000 and $223,000. In June 2015, a pink crocodile skin Birkin, with gold and diamond hardware sold at auction in Hong Kong for $223,000, breaking a world record. On eBay, a Birkin made of Niloticus crocodile leather sold for $99,900.
