I don’t know about anyone else, but one bag I’d personally spend a few 1000$ on is a Birkin! The bag name itself says success, the quality, desirable designs and aray of colors says every woman’s jewel! The name ‘Birkin’ is known by every social class and is desired as well. Even the movie Sex In the City tells us “It’s not just a bag…It’s a Birkin”. It’s all in a name but would it still be the same if the name were to change?
Jane Birkin of the Birkin bag came to Hermés and requested that they take her name of the iconic bag. Jane expressed that upon the discovery of how the bags weee being made that she no longer wishes to stand by Hermès.
Jane Birkin states,
“Having been alerted to the cruel practices endured by crocodiles during their slaughter for the production of Hermès bags carrying my name, I have asked the Hermès Group to rename the Birkin until better practices responding to international norms can be implemented for the production of this bag.”
Over a decade of being the symbol and name of Hermes she puts her foot down. But does that mean it’s over for the Birkin? Will the name change, and to what? I guess will find out soon enough and Liivefancii will be here to keep u informed.
