Anna Kournikova with her Hermes Shoulder Birkin
Powerseller and MyPoupette recommended seller flossyfigaro is deciding to part with this Hermes Shoulder Birkin. To get in on the auction the starting bid is a whopping $9,695.07
Designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier on behalf of Hermes, the chic 42cm JPG Shoulder Birkin is styled on the infamous Birkin design but to be worn over the shoulder with fashionable oversized hardware. The Hermes Birkin bag was originally created in the Fabuourg workshop in Paris in 1984 for the actress Jane Birkin. The Birkin which is a smaller version of the Haut a Courroies is an extremely versatile bag. With just 150 skilled Hermes craftsmen trained to make the Birkin and Kelly bags and where it can take such a skilled craftsman many hours to make such an equisite bag from cutting to finishing, demand for both the Hermes Birkin and Hermes Kelly bags far exceeds production, hence the notorious Hermes wait lists, where an existing customer can expect to wait from 3-7 years are now closed Worldwide. Each bag will have a code, which identifies the craftsman who made it, the year and the atelier it was made in.

Celebrity | Anna Kournikova | Hermes Shoulder Birkin
Spotted: Looks like not a fake designer handbag this time around for Miss Anna Kournikova. Ick, remember that fake Louis Vuitton Multicolore Speedy she was sporting for the longest time. I only posted one pick that I came across of her leaving the courts with the replica multicolore bag but I remember seeing snapshots of her with it at the grocery store, lunch and even while catching a tan at the beach. Hopefully she tossed it.
Pictured above is the (slightly skinnier than before) Anna Kournikova with the gorgeous black Hermes shoulder Birkin!
