Hermès Birkin bags are currently trending all over social media after rapper Saweetie hopped on her man's (Quavo) Instagram live and said: "If he is not getting you a Birkin if he is not paying for your bills…throw that n***a back to the streets! Okay?!"
In the clip, the California-bred rapper sassily says that she exit's the frame, and her boyfriend, Quavo, walks up to the camera and shrugs as Migos' song "Need It" featuring Young Boy Never Broke Again can be heard in the background. Shortly after, the video ends.
Well, Twitter users and celebrities have been going nuts over these elite bags. Queen Naija recently posted a video of her new orange Birkin bag that Clarence gifted her for her birthday. Jordyn Woods also posted a video of her bags that her new boo, NBA player Karl Anthony-Townes gave her for her birthday. Kylie Jenner also gave Cardi B a baby blue Birkin for her birthday to add to her growing collection.
The Hermès Birkin bag has always been a sign of wealth. Everyday people don't usually walk around with the bag because they cost a small fortune. Birkin bags are the most expensive bags globally, ranging from $40,000 to $500,000 for a single bag. Named after actress and singer Jane Birkin, the iconic bag is handcrafted and strictly exclusive, which drives the value of the Birkin year after year.
We've seen Beyoncé, Lil Kim, Paris Hilton, and Kim Kardashian carry Birkin's over the years. But now, rappers and young Black celebrities seem to have taken the trend and made it their own. Gunna has a platinum song named "Birkin Bag." And 50 Cent has a verse on Pop Smoke's hit song, "The Woo," where it says: 'Got that big Birkin bag worth five, six figures.' So, everyday people seem to think that buying these bags are an attainable goal.
Offset showed off a receipt which had a Birkin and two Constance bags. That photo went viral and caused Yaya Mayweather and other celebrities to debate over whether the bags are real or not since so many people are posting them.
