styleICON – Bringing Home the BIRKIN

birkin12Every fashion blogger is posting about Spring Style and every magazine is now showing it, but some things will remain in style all season long…like the Birkin.

For most of us unfortunately this luxury bag will remain inaccessible, but maybe that is part of the allure of having such an iconic bag.

It is not an “IT bag” it is “THE BAG.” Between the wait lists, the iconic namesake and its ladylike allure, the Birkin maintains as the bag to have.

The namesake: Jane Birkin  (born in 1946) is an English actress and singer who lives in France. Why is she carrying a basket? That must have been before Hermès   named it after her.
