Hermes X Jane Birkin: flair is in the bag

In 1984, Jean Louis Dumas, who is at the head of Hermes, met an embarrassed Jane Birkin on a plane. As the young mother of a little Lou (Doillon), Jane complains that no chic bag allows her to carry the few things she never gets rid of from now on: a bottle, a bit of diaper change, a small bottle of water… etc. Empathetic and inspired, the man seizes on this story to design a hybrid bag between the handbag and the weekend bag. The Young Woman who was granted her wish gives her name to this little miracle. Constantly reinterpreted in almost 40 years of existence, it has become an icon. Although the model exists in countless combinations, its most classic versions are subject to endless waiting lists. You should know that today, a version with 100% vegetable tanning of natural cow has entered the collection. A sign of an era that is changing and a house that is part of it.
