While there’s a lot to be said for living without regrets, there are some things a girl just can’t get over. Like, for instance, turning down the opportunity to have Hemès name a handbag after you. Just ask Claudia Schiffer.
Jane Birkin is the namesake of one of the world’s most coveted bags — or as she calls it, the “bloody Birkin bag”.
A few months ago we came across some super cute Thursday Friday totes that were printed with cheeky trompe l’oeil Birkins. We thought they were clever and winking and oh-so-affordable at $35 a pop. Hermès was none too pleased about the oft-backordered bags, and decided to sue Thursday Friday for copying their famed design.
Our friends over at The Gloss just got word that Hermes is planning on creating a new signature bag, one that is said to “rival the Birkin.” Half of the Birkin’s je n’est ce quoi comes from Ms Jane. Birkin’s name. So who, if anyone, we wonder, will hold the honor of having Hermes’ next It Bag named for them? We have a few ideas.
We were wondering why Lady Gaga was so easily persuaded to graffiti all over her white Birkin Bag with a Sharpie while in Tokyo. But perhaps her ability to be so loosey goosey stemmed from the fact that the exclusivity of the Birkin is dwindling. That’s right, ladies, get your Birkins! According to SheFinds.com, there’s no longer a waiting list!
