Bag A True Birkin For Japan

One of the most iconic bags in history has been put up for auction on eBay this week, in order to raise funds for the Red Cross efforts in Japan. Jane Birkin listed one of her own used Hermès namesake bags on the site yesterday with hopes of raising thousands for the crisis relief in Japan.

The bag is part of the singer’s personal collection of Birkins, and has all the hallmarks of a well used, and personally customised bag, stickers and sentimental trinkets decorate the outside and add a certain provenance linked to the personality and lifestyle of the enigmatic French muse.

The auction price started at $2,000 and continues until next week, happy bidding!
