Trends may come and go, but one thing is for certain—an Hermès Birkin handbag never goes out of style. Starting at noon ET today on Gilt, you’ll have access to the ultimate splurge, a rare one-of-kind Béton Alligator version (see above), plus other covetable styles. And just in case you actually needed an excuse to spoil yourself, we came up with six reasons you need one now.
