Designer Spotlight: Hermès

I could use the pronunciation guide, but I'll use my own.
French High Fashion.
Leather. Scarves.
Old. Tried & True.
Est. 1837
Household name, right?
Very exclusive.
Can take over 48 hours to make ONE.
Hence, the price range...
[Say What?!]
Who inspired this iconic bag?
Name's Jane Birkin.
That's right, friends.
Chief Exec. Dumas saw her on an airplane.
She complained she didn't have a good, quality leather weekend bag.
So, naturally, he made one for her.
The brand is also famous for scarves, accessories, home items, etc.
Though the items are as mythical as its namesake,
that is half the allure.
If you dare to track down the Birkin bag...
and your name doesn't rhyme with Shmardashian,
then you are one of the lucky ones.
