Hermes | Birkin 35cm | View!
Jane Birkin told a reporter at Scotsman.com that she “gave up on the (Birkin) bag right away. That bloody thing. I told Hermes they were mad to make it. My one was always full and it ended up giving me tendonitis.”
The creation of the Hermes Birkin was inspired after the singer spilled the contents of her too small bag onto the Hermes designer on a plane in 1981. Then in 1984 the first Hermes Birkin was created in Paris and later launched in America.
If you want to get your hands on a Hermes Birkin, then be prepared to wait. The waiting list is up to 2 years, unless you go though a different route like eBay or CreateursDeluxe. This Hermes Birkin 35cm (same that Nicole Ritchie has pictured below) via CreaturesDeluxe is available in stunning classic black taurillion clemence leather with palladium hardware. The letter I for the year 2005 and the number is embossed on the strap. The bag measures 14″ length x 11″ height x 7″ depth. This bag is huge! Okay get ready for the price, this marvelous bag retails for a steep $13,750. The Hermes Birkin 20 in this color is available for $12,750. Yes indeed this bag is pricey, but don’t get your hopes up if you want to get your hands on a Hermes Birkin, the cheapest I have ever seen a Hermes Birkin for was for $5,000.

Sorry for cutting Brody Jenner out of all the pictures, trust me he was there. After breaking it with Kristin Cavallari the duo (Nicole Ritchie and Brody Jenner) have been inseparable.
