Birkin has famously partnered with John Barry (film composer, including the James Bond soundtracks), Serge Gainsbourg (singer, composer, artist, director) and Jacques Doillon (film director). She has three daughters: Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Lou Doillon. Young Jane Birkin, for whom the Hermes Birkin bag was named On a flight between Paris and London in 1981, her over-stuffed purse spilled onto the floor in front of fellow passenger Jean-Louis Dumas, the CEO of luxury house, Hermes. She said it was too small for what she needed, and not practical for everyday use.

He based it on an 1892 “Haut Courroies” design by Hermes and the Hermes Birkin bag launched in 1984.
