FASHION HISTORY LESSON: THE ICONIC HERMÈS BIRKIN

Other Brands

Welcome to our new column, Fashion History Lesson, in which we dive deep into the origin and evolution of the fashion industry's most influential and omnipresent businesses, icons, products and more. 

A Birkin is not your average handbag. It is known for its superior craftsmanship and jaw-dropping price tag, with standard models starting around $12,000. Hermès refuses to release the number of Birkin bags that it manufactures each year, limiting the elusive supply to an elite group of customers. Thanks to this tight control, the brand has succeeded in maintaining the bag’s reputation as one of the world’s most desirable and unobtainable luxury items. A recent study showed Birkin bags are actually a better investment than stocks or gold, increasing in value by 14.2 percent on average each year. And in June, the item became the world’s most expensive handbag ever auctioned when an anonymous buyer in Hong Kong spent the equivalent of $300,168 on a single style. 

After all, it’s human nature for people to want what they can’t have…. even people like Samantha Jones. From horse stables to "Sex and the City," read on to find out how the world’s most coveted carryall came to be.

Long before her name became synonymous with luxury handbags, Jane Birkin was a French style icon in her own right. Originally from England, the singer, actress and humanitarian is perhaps best known for her long-term musical (and romantic) relationship with the controversial French musician Serge Gainsbourg. The release of the couple’s sexually explicit song "Je t'aime… moi non plus" in 1969 solidified Birkin's status as the British-born emblem of French chic.

According to Hermès lore, the idea for the brand's Birkin bag came from a serendipitous airplane encounter in 1981 between the stylish chanteuse andJean-Louis Dumas, the late chief executive of Hermès. The well-known story involves Ms. Birkin spilling the contents of a straw tote bag everywhere, inspiring the French label’s executive to create a bag that would be suitable for jet-setting women with too much to carry. Four years later, their airplane "collaboration" resulted in what we now know as the Birkin bag, and voila! A star was born.

Hermès is now best known for selling the Birkin, among other socialite-approved purses and printed scarves, but the historic house was originally recognized for its finely crafted horse harnesses and carriages. The Parisian shop first opened in 1837, but didn’t enter the world of luxury handbags until 1922. Their first celeb-endorsed bag was the "Sac à dépêches," which was later renamed the "Kelly" bag after being widely photographed on the arm of Princess Grace of Monaco. Both the Kelly and Birkin designs are supposedly based off of an Hermès bag from 1892 called the "Haut à Courroies," which was inspired by horse feed and saddle bags. [2] However, in Ms. Birkin's version of her namesake bag’s origin story, she and Dumas concocted the design and sketched it on an airplane sick-bag, which makes for a much better tale than finding inspiration in a horse stable.

Although it's difficult to imagine now, the bag was far from an overnight success. As noted in Vogue, Chanel had dominated the luxury bag market in the 1980s. [1] Although the Birkin bag was first introduced in 1984, it didn’t take off until the mid-to-late 1990s, at the dawn of the so-called "It-Bag" era.In fact, the only exposure that the bag got in Vogue until that time was in an Hermès advertisement that ran in 1989.

The iconic tote became forever known as the ultimate status symbol when it was used as a plot-point in a 2001 episode of Sex and the City. In the episode, Samantha Jones uses one of her celebrity client’s names in order to skip the "five year" waiting list for the coveted bag. After the episode aired, the Birkin's actual waiting list tripled in length, which is a true testament to the cultural impact of the show. [2] In 2005, the bag became even more widely-known when Gilmore Girls featured a storyline involving Rory Gilmore's boyfriend Logan bequeathing her with the precious handbag, only to discover that — gasp! — Rory had no idea what made the bag so special.

Today, Birkin bags can be found on the perfectly toned arms of many female celebrities. It has also become increasingly popular for stylish celebs to subvert the precious bag by customizing it, like Lady Gaga did by basically turning hers into a very expensive sketchpad. More recently, Kim Kardashian made headlines when she was gifted a Birkin that had been hand-painted by her infant daughter. Other stars, including Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham, have even repurposed the luxury totes as diaper bags, proving that a Birkin is, after all, a very utilitarian accessory.

In recent years, there has been some notable tension between Ms. Birkin and Hermès over the production methods that are used to create her namesake bag. PETA revealed in July 2015 that the French label was purchasing crocodile skins from a Texas farming factory employing inhumane practices towards its animals. Ms. Birkin publicly acknowledged the report and asked that her name be disassociated from the handbag. Although Hermès agreed to conduct an investigation in order to help clear its name and make-good with Ms. Birkin, PETA took it one step further by purchasing a single share in the company in order to gain access to its shareholder meetings. A few months later, Hermès announced that everything was “all-good” with Ms. Birkin, as she had been “satisfied by the measures taken by Hermès” to ensure that all skins were obtained ethically.  

If there's just one thing to learn from Jane Birkin and her mythical carryall, it’s that you should always make friends with fellow airplane passengers. After all, you never know when one of them will name an iconic luxury item after you.

Hermes Moves the Blind Stamp

Other Brands

Back in January of this year we reported that Hermes changed the location of their blind stamp (read: Where’s the H Stamp Gone?). 

To review: the blind stamp is a marker or stamped imprint that indicates the year of production, details about the actual craftsperson that put your treasure together, and in the case of exotics, the specific type of skin. This collection of information is loosely considered the authenticity stamp, but the markings alone cannot validate the authenticity of a handbag.

While the type of information included has evolved over time, since 1945, the stamps have been on the inside of the sangles. Today both the markings and placement have changed.

But we’ve never been sure if the change was a universal shift across allstyles. From what we’ve gathered, the change first occurred on exotic bags approximately two years ago. In January, when I brought home my Plomb Birkin from the mothership in Paris, we learned the change had spread to leather bags too (read: Part IV: PurseBop’s Score at Hermès Faubourg Saint- Honoré).

We’ve decided to investigate if the change applied to the Kelly bags too.  We reached out to a few members in our community lucky enough to score the elusive Kelly both here in the US and in France over the last few months.

Yes! The blind stamp has indeed moved on the Kelly bags, from the reverse side of the sangles (straps), (read: Hermes Birkin vs. Kelly 101 to learn the anatomy of a H bags) to a hidden spot deep in the leather creases of the bag. It is possible that the old placement is still phasing out, since @by_md purchased two Kelly bags this year, each with different placements.

Come See A Gorgeous Hermes Bag Replica Birkin In Ostrich Leather!

Other Brands

One thing is for sure: a Hermes bag replica like this is not easy to find, but it’s totally worth it!

Hermes Bag Replica Review – Fake Birkin Bag In Mykonos Ostrich Leather From UB

“Hi Eva,

Thank you so much for posting very useful information regularly on your blog. I think your website/blog is the most helpful source when it comes to buying replica bags online.

I have been reading your blog for several years and I got to know my favorite seller Uncle Bench thanks to you. However, I am recently seeing negative reviews about them, so I decided to share my lovely experiences with Uncle Bench with you so that more people can get amazing Hermes bag replica!

[Customer Services]
I have bought from Uncle Bench more than 5 times and my experiences with them were ALWAYS GREAT. I have used several methods to communicate with them – email, WeChat and Skype and I am satisfied with customer services by Rachel, Hugh and Laura. Though I am not a native speaker of English and we all use “foreign language” to communicate each other, their English are really good and there is NO misunderstanding between us.

[Item I am reviewing this time]
Today I am sharing one of my favorite bags I bought from them. I bought this Mykonos Ostrich Birkin 30 gold hardware (2 pictures attached) from them for my first purchasing experience with Uncle Bench. It’s been several years I bought from them but I always get attention wherever I go!

[From Order to Shipping]
My favorite color is blue and I instantly fell in love with Mykonos Ostrich color after I see it on their website, so I decided to buy it. I do understand it’s kind of risky to buy expensive exotic leather item for my first experiences with replica seller, but after doing comprehensive research and reading spotbags website, I was sure I can totally trust Uncle Bench, which was proved to be true after I receive the item.
When I asked availability of it, ostrich leather was not available so I decided to wait until it’s ready. Rachael clearly explained it will take about 3 weeks to make it and I agreed. They started making my bag after I made payment through wire transfer.
As Rachel promised me, my Hermes bag replica was made in 3 weeks and she shipped together with other Hermes bag I bought.

[Quality Control]
They have strict QC (quality control) procedure. Once bag is ready, they sent me picture so that I can confirm. In the picture they sent me, that was exactly what I received. They are really honest and reliable seller.

[Shipping]
She shipped the item to Hong Kong by Shun Fung with tracking code. The item arrived on the next day they shipped. They offered free shipping to Hong Kong!

[The bag]
I love my Mykonos Ostrich Birkin! As you see in the picture, I don’t see any differences with the Hermes authentic one and indeed, I never hesitated to go to Hermes shop with this bag in my hand. When I enter Hermes shop with this bag, the shop staff always notices me and immediately approaches me, saying “Thank you for using our bag. How can I help you today?”.
Also, when I am walking outside, I have been talked to by strangers many times and they say like “I love your Birkin!”, “Your Birkin is very beautiful!” etc.”

Not that I ever doubted it, but this review just proved again that Uncle Bench is one of the bestdesigner replica bags sites, especially for Hermes replica bags! Shipping takes pretty long, so you have to be patient if you order from them. But if you receive a Hermes bag replica like this, I think it’s all worth it.

Still, don’t get too excited. Their quality comes with a hefty price. This Mykonos Ostrich Birkin was bought back in 2013 and at that time it was $1,580. But if you want a Hermes bag replica in ostrich leather, then you’ll have to pay $1,800 or $1,900 for a machine made fake Birkin bag. If you want the best Birkin replica custom-made and handsewn, then you’ll have to pay even more.

I know that not everyone could afford a Hermes bag replica this expensive, which is why I wrote a post on how to find the best replica Hermes bags for every budget. But then again, the authentic Hermes Ostrich Birkin bags are crazy expensive! For example, on Spotted Fashion, a Hermes Ostrich Birkin 30 Bag is listed for $18,900 but on Malleries you’ll find Hermes Ostrich bags that cost much more than that. So if you think of it this way, a Hermes bag replica this good doesn’t sound so expensive anymore, especially when it will bring you so many compliments!

Bonus: here are some photos of a Constance Elan Hermes bag replica in Etoupe that was bought for $980, also from Ubgallery.co.

HERMES ROUNDED BAG FOR FALL WINTER 2016 COLLECTION

Other Brands

Hermes-Halfmoon-Bag-For-Fall-Winter-2016-Collection-2

Not sure whether we should be excited, but Hermes has always been a mysterious brand. You know… you cannot just walk into the store and grab a Hermes Birkin Bag or even the Hermes Herbag Zip Bag. You only know what’s in store when you’re in the store.

And as for the Fall Winter 2016 Runway, not many handbags were shared. In fact, we spotted just one bag. Though it looks simple, but it’s also quite impressive if you ask me.

You see, the new bag has a half-round shape, you know like half moon. And the models on the runway were grabbing it like a clutch bag. The single colors are minimalistic, featuring a beautiful clasp.

Hermes-Halfmoon-Bag-For-Fall-Winter-2016-Collection

But don’t be deceived, because there is another variation of this bag. You see, you can have it on your shoulder if you want. Hermes has also launched a shoulder bag version that has a longer shape. Because it’s bigger, you can store more stuff inside. And the handy leather shoulder strap is easy and comfortable.

Not much information has been shared yet, so we will keep you up-to-date about the prices and the sizes when it’s released.
