What’s Hermes Without The Birkin?

You heard that right!

The world’s most exclusive handbag designer might be in jeopardy of losing it’s most prized possession: The Birkin Bag

Style icon Jane Birkin, who inspired Hermes to make one of the world’s most exclusive handbag ranges, now wants her name taken off a crocodile-skin model.

Why may you ask?

The British actress seems to be troubled by the  “cruel practices” used to kill the reptiles in order to make these coveted totes.

Earlier this week, she demanded the  French luxury fashion house to remove her name from the Birkin Croco “until better practices in line with international norms can be put in place.”

Here’s how the brand responded:

“Hermes respects and shares her emotions and was also shocked by the images recently broadcast,” the company said in a statement.

“Her comments do not in any way influence the friendship and confidence that we have shared for many years.”

Look’s like we’re just going to have to wait and watch this one out. Will they? Won’t they?

What do you think?
