Hermès Birkin 30 Black Shiny Porosus Crocodile Gold Hardware
While the details of the story of how the Birkin bag came to be may vary, it is generally agreed that the bag was named after British actress and singer Jane Birkin, who was a regular customer at Hermès in the 1980s. The bag was created after Birkin had a chance encounter with then-Hermès CEO Jean-Louis Dumas on a flight from Paris to London. The story goes that Birkin had her bag spill its contents on the plane, prompting Dumas to offer to design a bag for her that would better suit her needs. The result was the Birkin bag, which quickly became a symbol of luxury and exclusivity.
Hermès' crocodile Birkin bags are known for their rich jewel tones and high-quality craftsmanship. This particular 30cm Birkin features a grid of small, square scales that enhance its deep, energetic color. The gold hardware adds a touch of elegance and sophistication, making this bag a true classic. In pristine condition, this bag is a must-have for any Hermès collector.
