Lady Gaga Loves To Wreck Hermes Birkin Bags

  • Pin it

True, she may be a bit late in trying so hard to destroy the Hermes Birkin legend (given the recent announcements regarding the replacement of Jean-Paul Gaultier) but Lady Gaga is really on to it! Customizing Hermes Birkin bags is not for anyone, that’s for sure!

I’m over my head when I found Crayola marks on my furniture (and that’s not uncommon in our household), let alone on my bag! If it was a Hermes Birkin, I’d keep it locked up. Not her Gaganess! No-oh! She’s writing stuff on her Hermes Birkin. And next, what do you know? She’s stuffing her Hermes Birkin with metal studs! Lady, you should know that your hedgehod-ish avantgarde-ism is no further than a 5-year-old’s artistic manifestations. Grow up? And leave them Hermes for those who know how to appreciate a five figure bag… (photos via 1,2)

Lady Gaga Hermes Birkin bags

I think she purchased these bags. They were probably given to her, like most celebrities are given luxury items.
The way she holds it, it’s unnatural. She holds the bag as though she is paid to advertise it.
Maybe that is why she easily vandalised the bags – she didn’t have to pay for them.

The first sentence: ‘don’t think’.
It’s too early in the morning for me.

What a trampy, black studded bag!

Vulgar and trying too hard!

I concur with Dee and Adriana that a) she most likely did not and does not pay for them, and b) that she is trying too hard to be artistic and ahead of it all.

I like Gaga but please leave the Berkin alone when it’s already a classic.

Given that Hermes is a luxury brand,

Given that Gaga is one of the highest earners in 2010,

I think she has the freedom to do what she likes with the bag.

With the bag-worship that you guys display, the Birkin is not something that’s readily available.

For her, it is.

Live and let live, folks.

I believe the Lady knows how to appreciates her birkins more than you did! She’s just doing what Birkin does, in her own style, and that’s what makes a birkin special for her and everyone else. It is a bag mean something, not only a five figure, but it’s an art piece worth more than that. The Lady knows how to put value on it! Her personal touch. It could mean something in the future. Your untouched birkin will remain at the same value, but look at Jane’s. Hers was sold to save thousands of people. You only know to appreciates its five figures, they appreciates the arts, fashion and humanity, and nature conservation which Hermes work so hard on.
