In 1981 Jean-Louis Dumas, Chairman of Hermès, was in the same flight with the British actress and singer Jane Birkin when he noticed that Jane’s bag was packed. She explained that she could not find a weekender bag that suited her. In 1984, he then created the Birkin bag, and named it after the actress. Since then the Birkin has become the greatest IT Bag in history, with the longest waiting list of any fashion accessory. This is considered the most coveted bag made by Hermès and is a significant investment to buy one.
