A hand-crafted Hermés bag is enough in and of itself but according to recent street style sightings from Tommy Ton for Style.com people are taking it upon themselves to creative direct theirs. Most recently he spotted a Bejeweled Birkin. To elaborate the eyecatching aftermarket design was donned in…glue-on jewels.
For most people, the custom colored leathers hit the spot, especially when paying five figures and sometimes waiting to months to receive it! (Remember that SATC episode where Sam Jones she was Lucy Lu to get one!)
Into this Bejeweled Birkin microtrend a new take on a classic or is it just plain tacky?
