Hermes Birkin: A bag for a young mom

In 1984, in an AirFrance flight from Paris to London actress Jane Birkin, found herself seated next to Jean-Louis Dumas, Executive Chairman of Hermès (1978-2006). After spilling the contents of her bag on the plane floor, Birkin who had given birth to her youngest Lou in 1982 complained that she couldn’t find a bag suitable for her needs as a young mom because "What's the use of having a second one? You only need one and that busts your arm.."

Dumas reportedly remarked, “You should have one with pockets”, to which she replied: “The day Hermès makes one with pockets I will have that.”
