  1. Handbags Inspired by Famous Actresses

    The actress who has had the most impact on a handbag design is Jane Birkin, a famous model and actress in 1984. She was sitting on an airplane next to the president of Hermes (Jean-Louis Dumas) and he noticed that she was trying to handle a large tote bag filled with everything she needed for her young daughter. During their conversation, they started to design a handbag that would suit the needs of a young mother and the Berkin Bag was born!

  6. I don't want a $33K one, I'll settle for Togo leather in a fun color.

    Years ago, when I didn't know any better, I used to work with a designer in Switzerland whose wife was just the cutest thing. Always well dressed and just lovely. And she always had a different candy colored OSTRICH Birkin to match whatever she was wearing. If I had only known back then.....
