So why does everyone still want a Hermes Birkin bag? We have an idea...
Classic handbags are the best investment
Victoria Beckham may own over £1.5million worth of Birkin bags, but if you're only investing in one? The Birkin is easy to wear, comes in every colour imaginable, and is spacious enough to use every day, wherever you are.
The Birkin bag was made for real women
Obviously, most women's handbags are made for actual women, but the fact that Jean-Louis Dumas created it specifically for women like Jane Birkin who over-stuff their handbags, just proves its practicality.
It looks really good
We've seen everyone from Kim Kardashian to the Made In Chelsea cast rock a Birkin bag, and it always looks good.
Once you have a Birkin, you're in the club
Waiting lists spiralling for six years at a time? That a Birkin bag is hard to get hold of is no joke, so once you're the proud owner of a Birkin, you're officially in 'the club'.
