We'd love to speculate that it might be Victoria Beckham or Kim Kardashian - two of the Birkin bags' biggest fans. The former has a collection reportedly worth £1.5 million while the latter has so many, she even uses one as a gym bag.
However, more likely, the purchaser is probably a collector who may not actually ever use the handbag, but simply keep it while it gains value over time. The Birkin bag, named after British actress Jane Birkin, is one of the most coveted items of fashion in the world and will most likely continue to become more and more valuable over the years, which is why it notoriously does extremely well at auctions.
