Orange birkins have been spotted on celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Beyonce Knowles, reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian, Australian television personality Charlotte Dawson, Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham, Mindy Kaling and Lindsay Lohan.
This particular neon orange birkin bag, which is fashioned very much like a messenger or satchel, was bought online on eBay, though it was originally being offered by Free People. Similar bags are also known as the “Kelly Bag” after Grace Kelly fondness for its design.
French fashion house of Hermès has a very wide selection of birkins, of course, if your budget allows but there are plenty of similar “birkin” bags, with and without tiny padlocks on the faux closure that appears on the front flap.
The back side of this bag also has a zippered pocket for things like a passport or travel documents but it’s also handy to quickly stash your sunglasses.
It measures approximately 13 x 8.75 x 5.25 inches with a 21 plus inch shoulder strap drop that enables the bag to be worn as a crossbody bag.
This birkin has a signature rectangular look, like most Kelly bags or birkins but the closure is more for the look than functional.
The handle on top of the bag is more for the “showing” than functional as the magnetic clasp opens up, especially if the bag is laden down with a lot of contents.
This bag’s neon orange or peach hue makes it perfect in all sorts of color combinations including being teamed with burgundy, mint green, royal blue, hot pink and so on… No wonder that orange birkins have been so popular with celebrities!
