As the story goes, the Hermès Birkin bag was created after then-Chief Executive Jean-Louis Dumas sat next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. See More
During that 1984 flight, Jane Birkin's belongings fell out of her handbag, inspiring Jean-Louis Dumas to create a high quality, sturdy, and functional bag for the singer/actress. The design of the Hermès Birkin was inspired by the Haut à Courroies, a handbag in Hermès' catalog from 1900. The Hermès Birkin is considered to be the pinnacle of luxury handbags — made to order and constructed by hand constructed of high quality leather, lizard, and ostrich. Due to the time it takes to construct each bag, the Hermès Birkin is constantly in high demand while supply is limited. Getting your hands on a Hermès Birkin bag directly from the luxury house is a process shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Hermès doesn't share the retail price of the bag, and customers cannot walk into a retail store and ask for a Birkin. Hermès will always prioritize returning customers that have built a rapport with the luxury house. According to some reports, the waitlist for a Hermès Birkin is up to a half decade, so naturally the secondary market is the fastest growing place to secure the handbag. Thankfully, all Hermès Birkin bags on StockX are brand new and certified authentic by our luxury handbag specialists. Shop to buy, or bid on a price to secure your very own Hermès Birkin.
