Founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermès, the namesake brand that began as a harness workshop in the Grands Boulevard quarter of Paris has become one of the most iconic haute couture houses.
Their most well-known product is arguably the Birkin, and the origins of its creation are perhaps as famous as the bag itself. A chance encounter at 30,000 feet between Jean-Louis Dumas, the then chief executive of Hermès, and actress Jane Birkin in 1983 saw the initial design for the Birkin bag sketched onto an Air France napkin. That sketch led to the production of the most sought-after bag on the planet, with people waiting for up to two years to be given the chance to purchase one.
The bag was designed for, and named after, the iconic actress and has been a must-have among the fashion elite ever since. However, this popular bags production has been highly limited to maintain its unattainable aura. In recent years, Hermès have actively been taking extra measures in scaling back production. It has been reported that you may wait as long as six years to get your hands on a Birkin bag directly from a boutique. The long wait is perhaps due to the time taken to create a single bag - it is rumoured to take one atelier around 48 hours to handcraft.
The Special Order Birkin is more exclusive still, with Hermès inviting a select number of clients globally to decide upon their choice of colours, leathers and hardware for their new bag. This Special Order Birkin is crafted in a striking blue hydra exterior with a contrasting gris mouette interior in luxurious chevre mysore leather. In unworn condition, this piece is immaculate and without initials.
