Almost A Birkin But Not Quite!

07 January 2011

Here at Grazia HQ, we appreciate the finer things in life and have a long list of highly covetable must-gets on hand to prove it, on the top of which you’ll find the very chic Hermès Birkin, in any colour – we’re not that picky! We are realistic however that even with the Parisian mega-brand’s waiting lists abolished, the chances of splashing more than £4,000 on one in, let’s say the next month or so, are slimmer than a Birkin’s own just-perfect buckle strap.

Imagine our excitement then when we came across this little beauty! Designed by Thursday Friday, the canvas tote features a likeness of Hermès’ iconic Birkin on each side, comes in three classic colours – red, blue and camel – and will only set you back $35! Not surreal enough for you? In a bizarre twist, the New York Times’ style blog reports that there is already a three-month waiting list for it! Makes Hermès’ walk-in-store-splash-the-cash-and–get-one seem suddenly sensible, doesn’t it?
