W Magazine: The Art of Hermès Exhibition in London Puts Birkin Bags Next to Warhol Paintings

W Magazine, October 14, 2020

We’ve seen our fair share of Hermès bags as high art—whether it was George Condo’s painting on a Birkin bag that Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian for Christmas in 2013, Birkin stone replica by Barbara Ségal owned by Rihanna, or even Paris Hilton’s pink Birkin bag, covered in Swarovski crystals. Now, an exhibition opening this week in London pairs up Hermès bags with artworks to draw a parallel between art and luxury handicraft.
