The unexpected encounter that gave birth to the Birkin bag
How did Jane Birkin win a bag in her name?
The Birkin bag was born from a totally unexpected encounter. In 1984, Jane Birkin finds herself sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, the president of Maison Hermès. The artist was just a young mother. Guess who she had just given birth to? From Charlotte Gainsbourg! Anyway, when chatting with your seatmate, the conversation inevitably ends up turning around the hand bags. This is an opportunity for Jane Birkin to empty her bag by sharing her great difficulty in finding an accessory that is both elegant and suitable for young mothers who are always overwhelmed. A new challenge for Jean-Louis Dumas? In any case, that's how he perceived it! During the flight, he took note of Jane Birkin's vision of the perfect handbag.
