What The Birkin!? Hermes Lights Their Own Bags On Fire!

hermes-burns-imperfect-birkin-bags.jpg

Hermes Birkin bags are on FIYAH, and not because they're hot must-haves.

It wasn't enough that photographer Tyler Shields set a $100,000 Birkin on fire while girlfriend Francesca Eastwood watched, but now the luxury brand's torching the extremely expensive bags themselves!

So why are the bags being smoked?

Mulberry's Emma Hill revealed:

"A friend who was working at Hermes said that if there was even the most minor imperfection on a bag they would take it out the back and burn it — no compromise."

That's just terrible!

We think Hermes should just donate the imperfect bags so we can all have a little piece of fashion heaven, even if they are a bit damaged!

What do U think?!?

Hermes Counterfeit Birkin Bag Ring Is Kaput

And another one bites the dust!

Hermes was pleased to announce last week that with the help of French national police, they successfully broke up a crime ring responsible for creating and selling counterfeit Birkin bags.

The fashion house said in a statement:

“This operation concludes a one-year investigation following an Hermes complaint based on clues and abnormal behavior identified through the house’s internal monitoring systems. Hermes is very satisfied with the efficient and diligent collaboration established with the national gendarmerie in this case and reiterates its relentless commitment to fighting counterfeiting. This action puts an end to the fraudulent project in progress.”

They suspect that these counterfeit bags were sold throughout Europe, the U.S. and Asia and estimated one branch of the ring made $22 million in sales.

Dayum!

What’s more troubling is two Hermes employees were part of the operation and the family-owned company suspected others may be involved too, which resulted in a dozen more arrests.

Now that the ring is closed, attention seekers photographers have no choice but to burn real Birkins in their shoots!

Ha!

Pennies!

We are SO glad 'Hollywood's photographer' can afford to be so frivolous when many cant afford to stay alive!

Check out Tyler's 'artistic' process (below) as he destroys something worth more than what most people make in a year.

Is Michelle Harper Trying To Be The New Daphne Guinness???

Because it kinda looks like it!

On Thursday night, Michelle Harper showed up to the RXART auction in New York City wearing a gothic-y ensemble and Hermes Birkin bag in hand.

She's not quite on the level of Daphne Guinness when it comes to fierceness, but Miz Harper has potential.
