Thing you can't imitate: Her namesake bag origin story
Birkin was sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, Chief Executive of Hermès, on a flight from Paris to London. After the contents of her wicker bag had spilled into the aisle, Birkin explained how it was difficult for her to find a leather weekend bag she liked. Soon after, the Birkin bag was born. She has admitted to only owning one of the coveted totes which is customized with stickers and badges to disguise it from being so obviously 'a bloody Birkin bag.'
