The Lure Of The Birkin Why is it the most-prized possession in many fashionistas' boudoirs?

There are It bags, and then there's the It bag—classy, boxy, and beautiful, this is the one bag that may very well bring the bearers of quilted purses, logo-emblazoned totes, and studded handbags to their knees. Connoisseurs are probably giving a knowing nod by now, but if you still haven't guessed, we're talking about the one and only Hermès Birkin.

While we're not discounting the covetability of the other wonderful bags out there, there's no denying that there is really something about the luxurious Birkin that makes a woman set aside that amount and pencil her name in, no matter how long the waiting list is.

With Hermès slated to open its doors in Manila this year, Style Bible has decided to explore just what it is about this bag that makes it so desirable. Click on to see which of Manila's lucky ladies have been toting the Birkin around town, and get a crash course on what the iconic bag is all about—straight from certified bag connoisseur Ingrid Chua-Go.
