Hermès is a French high fashion house specializing in leather, ready-to-wear, lifestyle accessories, perfumery, and luxury good.
During the 1930s, Hermès produced some of its most recognized original goods. In 1935, the leather Sac à dépêches (later to be renamed as the 'Kelly Bag") was introduced, and, later in 1937, the Hermès carré (scarves) were introduced. Featuring a print of white-wigged ladies playing a popular period game, these custom-made accessory scarves were named Jeu des Ombinus et Dames Blanches. Hermès oversaw the production of its scarves from beginning till end: purchasing raw Chinese silk, spinning it into yarn, and weaving it into fabric twice as strong and heavy as most scarves on market.
Hermès' leathers include those of alligator from Florida, buffalo from Pakistan, crocodile from Australia, shark from Thailand, lizard from Malaysia, and oxen, deer, calf, goat, and ostrich from all over the world. The leathers are professionally treated, dyed in an extensive range of colors, and handcrafted into bags of all sizes, small leather goods, and additional accessories.
Another famous handbag, the Birkin, was named for actress Jane Birkin, who co-designed the bag with company president Jean-Louis Dumas after complaining that her Kelly bag was not practical for everyday use. Jane Birkin has since stopped carrying her namesake bag, saying it contributed to her tendinitis. ns among the most requested and has the strongest waiting list of any other luxury Hermès good.The wait for a special order Birkin can be up to six years, based on the type of leather or skin requested. The price of the smallest Birkin reaches into five and six figures for larger sizes, different leathers, and special orders (which can include, but are not limited to, bi- and tri-color orders).
In popular culture, the Birkin bag has been featured in television shows such as Gilmore Girls, Sex and the City, Will & Grace, Gossip Girl andGirlfriends, as well as on the arms of well-heeled celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Coleen Rooney,Alex Curran, Kate Moss, Marta Stewart ,Jada Pinkett Smith, and Oprah Winfrey and the subject of a tell-all memoir, Bringing Home the Birkin (published by HarperCollins, 2008) by Michael Tonello .
