The ultimate status symbol: the Hermes Birkin Bag. It costs (if you could get one, always wait listed) give or take (on the conservative side), $14k. One wealthy man bought his wife a white one for her 41st birthday, but he wasn’t excited by it. It then dawned on him that it was a canvas. He commissioned graffiti artists Mint & Serf to have their way with the bag, and that they did. Love it? Or does it turn your stomach?
