A luxury French brand specializing in lifestyle accessories, leather, jewelry, and watches, Hermès named its famous handbag the “Birkin” after the English actress Jane Birkin. When the actress met Jean-Louis Dumas, the son of Robert Dumas-Hermès, she mentioned how unsatisfactory her bag was for daily use. Subsequently, Dumas invited her to France and they co-designed the bag. One of the key highlights in the upcoming Winter Luxury Accessories sale, offered by Heritage Auctions, is a Hermès Birkin handbag made of vermillion ostrich skin. The interior is lined with vermillion leather and contains one zippered pocket and a slip pocket. Another highlight is a Hermès black crocodile Kelly-cut clutch. Featuring a top handle and a turn-lock closure, the clutch has one slip pocket.
This auction will present more than 180 lots by well-known luxury brands, especially highlighting leather bags. The other items featured in the sale include clutches, tote bags, canvas backpacks, silk and cashmere scarves, jewelry, and watches.
