The Birkin Bag
“Birkin Bag” …two little words that send every fashionista into a frenzy. The coveted Birkin bag comes with the longest waitlist for any luxury item - up to six years long. It also comes with a hefty price tag. The regular going rate for a Birkin is about $6,000. Even the most elite have trouble getting their hands on a Birkin Bag.
Many unenlightened people may ask “why a waitlist?”…“why so much money?” But only those who have been up close and personal with the Hermes Birkin bag can really begin to understand what all the hype is about. This bag radiates quality with its fine leather, precise lines, handmade details, and immaculate interior. Every detail of this bag, down to the stitching, is perfect. So much handwork, detail, and fine quality are put into these bags. They can’t help but stand apart from the other masses of factory created bags. With the perfect size and style the Birken can accompany you anywhere with anything…if only you are so lucky to have one.
Birkin Bags are not simply fashion accessories but coveted collector items. It is a fashion time-piece carried for years and passed down to daughters and granddaughters. It is an item that exudes elegance, style, and affluence. Men have antique stop watches and women have the Birkin Bag. Simply put, the Birkin bag is a classic time-piece that only very few are blessed with the honors of owning.
