In 1981 Hermes chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated beside Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. To cut a long story short she could not find a leather weekend bag that would close properly, leaving the contents of her bag constantly falling out. Hence, in 1984 Dumas created a great weekend leather bag based on a 1892 design that would suit her taste and hold her items. No matter what color you get this bag in, it is definitely one to have! This hand made in France, made to order bag comes in a range of sizes, customer-chosen hides, colors and hardware fixtures. This bag has absolutely no logos, however it is arguably the most recognizable bag in the fashion world! And for only about $10,000 and a wait period of up to 6years this iconic bag can be yours!
P.S. if you do decide to gift this to someone this Christmas and you haven't placed the order, take a picture, wrap it in a box and let her know it's on the way!
