Presenting the Hermès Birkin Club (SGD14,500), the reinterpreted Birkin that will make its debut in the Spring-Summer 2011 Womens Hermès collection. The funny thing is, I’m not exactly sure if this is a stud or a dud. Yes it is a Birkin, yes it does come with strips of exotic lizard skin, and yes no matter how much it costs it will still be the most desirable bag around.
But try as I might, whenever I look at it all I see is something that Tod’s does perennially anyway. Or is it simply this colour combination that’s just too sporty for a Birkin (if there is even such a thing in the first place), or am I just getting old and become too conservative at the same time?
You tell me.
