China’s refusal of Jane Birkin could put Hermés at high risk on exit

The connection is “Birkin’s participation in a protest calling for Tibet’s independence during the 2008 Summer Olympics’ torch relay in Paris… where she also reportedly told the media what she felt about China’s “lack of freedom of speech.” Twitter has been trolling the British singer and also the orchestra. One even suggested banning the Birkin bag. Now that could touch a sensitive note with the rich and luxury-lover Chinese who have a special affection for the Hermés handbag. So much, that recently a bag got sold for a staggering $300,168 – perhaps the most expensive handbag in the world! Sales for the handbag have “skyrocketed” in recent times, and such vehement opposition to the namesake can come at a mighty large price. Did I say Jane Birkin is having a bad year? I meant Hermés. They are just not getting a break, are they? Why you do this, China, why? For now, let’s Stay Calm and Watch Out.
