Below: 'Colour me black' Birkin? Any Birkin expert ready to authenticate this bag?:-P
D.I.Y Decorated Birkins...
Further to my post about a 'Birkin' (Authenticity is questionable) getting 'D.I.Y decorations', here's another as photographed by Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil. What's happening? Perhaps the influx of many birkins into the market, has caused Birkin owners to want to differentiate their birkins from fellow peers'? (To be honest, much as birkin is still the most coveted bag around, Birkin bag no longer retains its exclusivity status like yesteryear. It is an expensive bag for the waitlist 'survivors' who have the cash. I can spot more Birkins over a weekend than say a Mulberry Alexa Bag: the hot bag of the season.)
So will you boldly give your Birkin a D.I.Y 'personality'?
(Self note: If I have mine, I'd keep it in its original state, careful for any scruffs or buffs, much less smudge it with paint or embellished it with plastic jewels. We are talking about a 5 figure price tag here!:-P)
