Icon-Icon Opinion :

“I was on a plane from London to Paris in the 1980s and I was sitting, unknowingly, next to Jean-Louis Dumas, the president of Hermès. My Hermès schedule was so full that everything fell through. He told me that I had better put my personal belongings in closed pockets. I said, ‘If Hermes would put pockets…’ he said, ‘I am Mr. Hermes and I will put pockets for you. A month later, he sent me a bag and asked me if he could call it the Birkin.” Jean-Louis Dumas thus designed a bag that is now worth more than gold! Translated with (free version)
