Remember how the summer before last, all Kim Kardashian carried was Chanel and Celine on her arm? It looks like she’s back to her beloved Hermes. This range of bags is called the Birkin. The Birkin is infamous and needs no introduction. Women who can afford them start out by getting the most recognizable and usable versions of the bag – the black and orange leather Birkins. But when you’re a woman like Kim Kardashian, the basic stuff is really not what people expect to see you in.
The latest Birkins Kim’s been seen with are the huge black Birkin Kanye gave to her as a present, you know, the one with the handpainted Picasso-like painted ladies. This one is definitely more low-key, even though it most likely also cost a fortune. It’s a relatively small sized snake leather Birkin. The exotic animal print Birkins are always higher priced than the basic leather Birkins, so just because it’s small doesn’t make this Hermes bag modest!
