The coveted Birkin has become the Black Label Scotch in India. Just like India sells and consume more Black-Label than it’s produced in Scotland, the number of Bag-Hags flaunting their Birkin are more than the bags sold by Hermes. You wondering how can that happen? Well darling it’s the ‘fakes’ that are floating around and fake fashionistas are shamelessly flaunting the fakes.
Too many people who are not all that fashionable have it. And they carry it everywhere. I have seen women carry their big Birkins to dinner parties. So not chic! Globally people are blaming Kim Kardashian for demoting the status-symbol associated with the Birkin. Here I got to blame the fake Birkin carriers for it.
