The slightly different “Birkin Bag” that anyone can afford

Die etwas andere Birkin Bag


Why is the basket bag a different kind of Birkin Bag?

In the early ’80s, the British actress Jane Birkin and to that time the boss of Hermès, Jean Luis Dumas met on a flight. Birkin had her beloved basket bag with her and complained about the difficulties of finding a suitable leather bag. Already, during the flight, Dumas began sketching designs on a napkin. Et voilà: – the famous “Birkin Bag” was born.


However, let’s get back to the summery basket bag … In the seventies, the sweet basket was the trademark of Jane Birkin. Lately, it is the most commonly It-Piece shared on Pinterest. Isn’t it amazing, that the new It-Bag, is affordable for every fashionista? “Birkin Basket” is the name of this summer trend and it completes every summer outfit with a bit of French charm. I love wearing the cute basket with light and breezy dresses or floral blouses. Personally, it’s the only bag that instantly gets me into a summer mood and easily fits in sunscreen, sunglasses and much more.
