The Birkin Family’s New Addition: The Shadow Birkin

Building on the iconic ‘Birkin’ Hermès is set to release the ‘Shadow Birkin’.

Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier and inspired by the concept of the trompe l’oeil (an art technique that creates the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions) the ‘Shadow Birkin’ will retail for just under $11,000USD.

    That point aside, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Hermès is a nexus of taste to rival the Savoy.
