I went to the market in Porte Clignancourt in mid 2000's and I saw a bright blue Birkin bag. As usual, I was wearing all denim and the blue bag was a match. I asked Alain to show me the bag and from that day on, I did not go anywhere without it. The bag was with me hopping in and out of airplanes as a carry-on. It became heavier as I purchased books and magazines on the journey. Once, I pulled it out of the overhead compartment and a metal piece broke off and fell on a man sitting right underneath. He happened to be a luxury handbag designer and occasional Hermes dealer in Zurich. He fixed the bag perfectly.
