The Story Behind The Birkin Bag :

It all started back in 1981 when the Hermès chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. She was carrying a straw bag which had been captured with so many times.She was just about to place her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat but before she knew it fell on the floor leaving her her to scramble to replace her contents back in the bag.She explained to Dumas how it’s so difficult to find a traveling weekend leather bag that she really likes. In 1984, Dumas created a black supple leather bag to her ” the Birkin bag” inspired by what she told him and based on an 1892 design.

قصة تسميتها بالبركن :
في سنة 1981 يحكى ان المغنية جين بركن كانت مسافرة من باريس الى لندن خلال نهاية الاسبوع . وصدف انها جلست بجوار الرئيس التنفيدي لبوتيك “إغمس” جيين لوي دوماس . حيث جين كانت تحمل حقيبة من القش ” كانت محببة لها جدا و صورت مرات عدة وهي تحملها” .و قبل اقلاع الطائرة حاولت ان تضع حقيبة يدها في صندوق الامتعة اعلى مقعدها لكنها سقطت و تناثرت محتوياتها. فإشتكت لدوماس عن مدى صعوبة اقتناء حقيبة يد مريحة للسفر خصوصا في فترة نهاية الاسبوع. في عام 1984 صمم دوماس حقيبة مستلهمة مما قالته بركن خلال الرحلة ومأخوذ من تصميم لحقيبة صمم عام 1892 من قبل نفس الماركة ” اغمس” و اهديت لجين بركن بعد تكريمها بتسمية الحقيبة بإسمها .

 What Birkin Says about the “Birkin bag” :-

She said: “I was very flattered! They’ve turned it to the success we know today. So now, when I go to America to sing, they say, ‘Birkin – like the bag?’ I say, ‘Yes, indeed: and the bag will now sing’.”

ماذا قالت بركن عن الحقيبة “
انه لشرف لي و انا سعيدة بالنجاح اللي اكتسحته الحقيبة. عندما اذهب لأغني في امريكا يسالونني ” بركن ؟ كالحقيبة ؟! و اجاوبهم : نعم بالطبع , الحقيبة ستغني الان .

the Birkin bag is free of logos,but yet it is one of the most recognized bags in the fashion industry and by the public

حقيبة بركن لا تحمل اي لوقو ” علامة تجارية” و لكنها من اكثر الحقائب المميزة و المعروفة و المالوفة على الصعيد العالمي .

Beauty Trend : The Thicker The Better

the dark full eyebrows trend in the classic beauty time

The bold brows trend has been on and off since the classic beauty times

Brooke Shields

I believe I read that somewhere ” Brooke Shields” was the one who brought back the – almost dead – bold brows trend back in the early 1980s when she lured eveyone with her charm!! She is such an icon and there is something about her that makes her a prefection beauty, just a breathtaking. Brooke Shields was so popular on fashion and beauty magazine spreads back in the late 70s and early 80s.

And I noticed that “the Bold Eyebrows Trend” has been-on since 2008, right when Brooke Shields returned in a big budget primetime drama called ” Lipstick Jungle ” as a co-star, coincidence?

Lipstick Jungle TV Series (2008 - 2009 )

They call Lucy Hale -one of Pretty little Liars co-stars – ” the new Brooke Shields ” becasue of her pale skin, dark hair and bold eyebrows.

Thick eyebrows trend is so on nowadays. it gives you more innocent & a younger look.
celebrities, models on runways and photoshoots are so into the trend, and in my opinion it does look better and more elegant, it’s time to stop tweezing, waxing and threading your eyebrows ladies !!
