Hmmm…we’re not sure whether this will help or damage the image of an American presidential candidate, but Donatella Versace has dedicated her Spring-Summer 2009 collection to Democratic contender Barack Obama.
The Italian designer says the clothes are suited for “a relaxed man who doesn’t need to flex muscles to show he has power.”
Donatella also has a few words of advice for Obama: “I would get rid of the tie and jazz up the shirt,” she says.

web site | Hermes Birkin 101 | By Bag Snob Tina

The ultimate status bag, the Hermes birkin, is at the top of every girl's wish list. But to truly appreciate the birkin in all its beauty and to be worthy of its fabulousness is to be knowledgeable on everything about it. We all know Hermes bags are crafted by hand with the most amazing skins in the world. And by now even my housekeeper is aware of the secret blindstamp and craftsman id on the strap. But it is not just the Hermes stamp and logo that makes one a "Bag Snob"! There is so much about Hermes bags that make them the finest in the world. First, the tissue paper. I have had many conversations with various Hermes Managing Directors and they all love talking about the tissue paper. Apparently there are special tissue paper craftsman who spend their entire lives folding tissue paper for Hermes bags! They make little pillows for the birkin to rest upon and layers of "blankets" to protect it. It is suggested that you keep the bag exactly as the day you opened it, sleeping on the little pillow will allow it to keep its shape for life!

article | a hermes naomi bag?

Luxury French fashion house Hermes are known for three things, the Hermes Kelly (created in the 1930s and renamed for Grace Kelly in the 1950s), the Hermes Birkin (co-designed by Jane Birkin and president Jean-Louis Dumas), and the Hermes scarves.
Now the blog, Style File, is reporting that another bag collaboration could be in the works with Naomi Campbell working on a Hermes tote that may bear her name.
No doubt if this rumour is true then Naomi would have one in every exotic skin Hermes use (alligator, crocodile, ostrich and lizard). As long as Naomi isn’t in charge of monitoring the speed of the assembling line.
It’s all a bit rich to have Naomi have her own bag, when a style icon like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis didn’t even a Hermes bag named after her, even though she was a big fan of the Hermes Constance and Trim bags.

What do you think?

It turns out Oprah wasn't upset with Hermes the company, just the bitch working the door at their Paris store.
As expected, Oprah used yesterday's show to recount her June snub by the luxury retailer that refused her entry into the store because, uh, they were closed to set up for a private event...(more)

interview | 57and5 (eBay PowerSeller) | tips to purchase birkin bags on eBay

it might be worth paying a premium on eBay for a birkin that you have been dreaming of because the waiting list is so long. however, there is also a risk of fake ones. here is a list of 11 tips from eBay powerseller '57and5' (see their eBay store) when you purchase a birkin bag on eBay.

1. always purchase through eBay. do not "get a deal" outside eBay.
2. always pay by credit cards through PayPal.
3. check on the seller's credits. See their feedback. eBay powersellers have been building their reputation for years.
4. don't purchase it if the sellers are located in indonesia.
5. don't purchase it when the seller says the bag is an "unwanted" gift.
6. only purchase from the sellers who can provide the original hermes store receipts. first-hand birkin bags are sold only at Hermes boutiques.
7. ask for the seller's phone number and speak to him/her directly.
8. do not expect to purchase a brand new birkin bag under the retail price. all the reliable birkin bag sellers on eBay are selling them for profits.
9. "money back guarantee" or "refund policy" doesn't mean anything.
10. only use overnight shipping. it is worth it even through the seller asks you to pay for it!
11. make sure it comes with the original hermes dust bag, 1 lock, 2 keys, clochette, rain protection, and box.

Happy Shopping!

birkin blog says | sure you can find birkin bags at hermes stores
we all know there is a loooooooooooooooong waiting list for the birkin bags. there is even a waiting list to get on the waiting list in some stores. on the recent trip to tokyo, I visited two hermes stores- hermes mansion in ginza and isetan department store in shinjuku. i am surprised that i saw many (i mean many) birkin bags in both stores. i asked the saleslady if they were available (sometimes they tell you the bags are for display only, not for sale). the saleslady told me the bags are all available for sale. If you do not mind a trip to japan and high tax, you can still purchase birkin bags from hermes stores.
