Rs 7,00,000 aka seven lakhs in Indian rupees. Yes, that’s the starting price of an original Hermès Birkin bag. A spacious tote bag handmade in leather, Birkins are constructed by a single artisan and it takes 48 hours to make one. They’re named after actress and singer, Jane Birkin, and have become a mark of wealth for its price. From Triple-K (Kareena Kapoor Khan) to Kim K you might have spotted these bags in the hands of celebrities.
Don’t worry. We’re not going to try and talk you into spending your hard-earned money on ONE bag. This baby is on our lottery wishlist anyway, should we win it someday. Instead here are all the bags you can invest in that are just as pretty but not as pricey as a Birkin.
Just when we thought nothing even comes close to a Birkin, we found this black beauty by Mango. An all-black genuine leather handheld bag, this tote is a saviour for working ladies and travel bugs out there. Plan your travel in style just like Bebo.
You don’t have to pay like Kareena to look like Kareena. If you’re all for petite bags, worry not, because we’ve got your back too.
