$660.00

Description ::

An extremely special and unique HAUT A COURROIES "HAC" 40cm Birkin in Suede and Crocodile. No other travel bag in the world is as exquisite as this handcrafted Hermès Birkin HAC bag. To our knowledge this is a one of a kind Birkin, the only on in existence, a true Investment Bag Opportunity

Since 1892, created by Émile-Maurice Hermès who modeled it after the totes used by Argentinian cowboys while on a trip to South America. Since then, other bags have been created with the original as the muse, including the Kelly in 1956 and the Birkin in 1984, which was modified from the HAC to be shorter and smaller, but with handles made a tad longer for toting over the arm.

Traditionally made in sizes from 40 cm through to 55 cm (which refers to the width of the bag), it has stayed true to its original form, large and imposing, which also happens to be its Achilles’ heel. Being so huge also means it is a less popular option as far as the guys are concerned. Sometimes, trying to spot one on the streets is like trying to find a unicorn, but when you do, you’ll drop everything you’re doing just to stare at it a little longer, taking in its magnificence and basking in its glory.
