Herms named one of their most popular creations after actress and singer Jane Birkin.
The story goes that the fashion house's chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was sat next to the style icon on a flight. When she placed her straw bag in the overhead compartment, its contents fell to the ground and she explained to Dumas that it was difficult to find a leather weekend bag that she liked.
In 1984, he created such a bag for her and it is now one of the most recognised bags in the fashion world.
