Jane Birkin’s Birkin

by Adam the Editor

To help raise money for the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Jane Birkin donated her very own Birkin to auction off.

The Birkin had been customised by Jane and was a personal gift from Jean-Louis Dumas.

The lucky recipient paid a cool £100,100.00 on eBay for the bag. Significantly more than any other Birkin on sale today.

I think in this instance, £100k is a reasonable amount to pay when you think about the history behind this bag. If it wasn’t for Jane complaining to Jean-Lois about bags back in 1981; the Birkin would probably not have been created.
