The Return Of The Hermès Birkin 35

The other day I was wandering around Middleburg—a magically beautiful horse country town in Loudoun County, Virginia—where I spotted TWO unicorns on the main street. A Birkin 25 in Porosus Crocodile and the 35 white Togo, and of course they were besties.

When I lived on the Upper East Side of NYC, I used to spot Birkins all the time, but since relocating to the DC area, the sightings are pretty rare. Both fancy, fabulous women were carrying the 35 which is the original OG Birkin, and while some might say they’re a little too big for their stature, the 35 makes a huge statement, and you can carry everything in there.


To recap what may be common knowledge at this point, the Birkin was named after actress Jane Birkin. She was grabbing something out of her bag in the overhead bin on an airplane, it tipped over and a bunch of her items fell out. She loudly exclaimed that it was impossible to find an elegant carryall that could hold all her essentials. Luckily, the Jean-Louis Dumas of Hermès was sitting right near her and granted her wish. In the mid-1980s, the Birkin bag was born.

For those who carry numerous necessities on the daily (and maybe even a pair of pumps), the 35cm (14"L x 10"H x 7"W) is the ideal size. The most popular of the Birkins, this bag is considered to be the original, the classic, utterly timeless and the workhorse of the sizes.

While the size makes it easier to tote lots of items, it's also just as easy to weigh yourself down because the bigger the bag, the more you can justify carrying! Since the 35cm is a bit on the larger size, it might be better suited for someone with a tall, statuesque frame or someone who carries a lot of stuff.


As we move away from the mini bag craze and people start to go back to work, oversized totes are coming back in style. Now is the perfect time to get your hands on the OG Birkin that started the whole craze over 40 years ago. As a founding member of the Holy Grail Bag Club, the 35 has been featured on Sex and the City — It’s not a bag, it’s a Birkin! — and of course, Keeping Up with the Kardashians

As an honorary member of the HGBC, LePrix's got dozens of Birkins in store, and especially below!
