Six Reasons to Bring Home The Birkin


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.

Reason #1: You Have to Earn It
Think you can just strut in and purchase the iconic “It” bag? Think again! There’s literally a waitlist to get on the waitlist. Most store associates won’t even show you a Birkin unless you make a substantial spend on other Hermès items.

Etienne Aigner Handbags: Then & Now

The newly-relaunched Etienne Aigner makes their debut on Gilt today, and one look at their newest offerings alongside their archival handbags clearly shows how they’ve stayed true to the brand by incorporating signature details (from the ’50s and ’60s) in a fresh and modern way. Etienne — who had apprenticeships with both Christian Dior and Cristóbal Balenciaga — was known for putting a unique stamp on his designs with items he came upon in everyday life, including turn locks, studs, and horseshoe buckles, and that tradition continues across their handbags, wallets, and more… all of which you can scoop up now on Gilt.
