The Hermès Birkin Bag::

The Birkin, perhaps the most famous handbag in the world, 
was named for singer and actress Jane Birkin. 

While rummaging through her bag on an airplane she was complaining that her Kelly was not practical for everyday use, Ms. Birkin just happened to be sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, the Chairman of Hermès.  She co-designed the bag with president Jean-Louis Dumas in the 1980's and the Birkin bag was born.
