The Birkin bag needs an update. There should be a attach/detachable strap on the side.

Evelyn Ng says:

Mel, which leather is better, Togo or Epsom? I’m thinking of ordering from my SA – she told me to think about Epsom leather for my black Birkin 30 GHW, but I really like Togo. She told me the Togo will slouch after a few years, but the Epsom will stand

Joey Thomas says:

In my opinion the kelly is much more elegant

freesurfable says:

very good explanations… thx but what is the brand of the organizers ?

LiamKaulitz15 says:

I think if I could only get one, it would be the Birkin!
