Named after singer/actress Jane Birkin, the Birkin bag is one of the most recognized bags in fashion. To carry this bag is a sign of wealth with each bag costing nearly $10,000-$150,000 depending on the type of material used and the availability. On average, it takes about 48 hours to make each bag, which is handmade by the way. It’s also exclusive to the public making it an even bigger treasure. I’m obsessed with this bag! It’s simple, elegant, and glamorous. Just about every celebrity has been spotted carrying the Birkin bag including, the Kardashian sisters, Victoria Beckham, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Montag, Nicole Richie, Kimora Lee Simmons, Hilary Duff, Lady GaGa, and the list goes on.
The bag features incredible hardware. I personally think that the hardware is what makes the bag so beautiful. The lock, keys, buckle, and base studs are coated with either gold or palladium, in order to prevent tarnishing. There are various sizes to choose from including 25 cm, 30 cm, 35 cm, and 40 cm. For traveling purposes, the 50 cm or 55 cm is recommended. There are also various colors to choose from including basic black or bright pops of color such as, orange, yellow, and pink to name a few. Another reason why I love this bag is because it goes with everything. You can dress it up or down. If you’re dressing a little more casual, this bag will give definitely give you a touch of glam without trying. The Birkin bag makes any outfit come together and look polished.
One of my dreams is to own the Birkin bag-a couple acutally. Hey, anything is possible, right? There’s no harm in dreaming big as long as you have a plan and follow it. Below, I’ve included photos of celebrities wearing the Birkin bag. I love this bag so much! It’s absolutely stunning, but don’t take my word for it. See for yourself.
