The Beautiful Face Behind the Beautiful Bag

She’s an actress, a model, a muse, a singer and the woman behind the world’s paramount bag
I remember when my sister told the story of the Birkin Bag and how it all started. on 1984 Hermès named and designed a handbag—the Birkin bag—for Jane Birkin because on an Air flight from Paris to London, Jane Birkin pulled her Hermes datebook out of her bag and all her papers fell down. She complained to the person sitting next to her that the book should have pockets. That person was the chairman of Hermes, Jean-Louis Dumas, and after hearing her complaint he created the Birkin bag.
She was on the cover of Vogue Paris, Vogue UK and Vogue US
