(Before It's News)

“Jane B” by Jane Birkin. Very sexy, very beautiful, that is, of course before you read the lyrics.
Here’s a piece of fashion trivia for all those fashionistas out there — of which I am one. Jane Birkin was the inspiration for the now-famous Hermes “Birkin” bag. In 1981, Hermès chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. Birkin had just placed her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat, but the contents fell to the floor, leaving her to scramble to replace the contents. Birkin explained to Dumas that it had been difficult to find a leather weekend bag she liked. In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her: the Birkin bag. The Birkin bag has, over the years, become a status symbol, with prices ranging from $10,000 to $150,000.
