The first Birkin flies to New York

It’s a project that’s been in the works for over a year. After the Galleries Lafayettes in 2000 and Liberty of London in 2014, the first Birkin bag will be exhibited in New York at the Museum of Modern Art from October 1st to February 28th 2018 on the 6th floor of the world-renowned museum.

 

The first Birkin ever made for the Hermès House is part of a 111 item selection that will be exhibited at the MOMA for their exhibit Items: Is Fashion Modern?
They will try to answer this complex question by retracing past fashions till present day and try to determine what links them, and if there is indeed a link.
I am very happy to be going to New York and to be reunited with my prized handbag. I will post photos all week of this exciting event!
