The iconic Birkin bag was first imagined by singer-actress Jane Birkin on a Paris-London flight in 1983. Birkin told Hermès chairman Jean-Louis Dumas, next to whom she was sitting, that she wanted a spacious, sturdy and stable bag with a flat bottom that was just as elegant open or closed. Dumas set about having it designed, and it’s now a status symbol gracing the arms of the most fashionable women the world over. POA
