The notebook is perfect for fashion-loving trans-digital types attending catwalks, sipping coffee on grand boulevards or to pull out anywhere that a sagacious note might need to be taken (or ripped out and given).
The Birkin is, of course, a classic handbag sold by the Hermes accessories company and named after the singer Jane Birkin (for those unfamiliar with the story, it is outlined here).
This notebook celebrates the most humble leather Birkin which, under most circumstances and by most measures, is a good example of sagacious extravagance. The quality of leather, vibrancy of colour, elegance of design, precision of hardware, attention to functionality and instant recognisability are some of the features that set it apart.
But that’s not all! This notebook also expresses an appreciation for Gucci style and craftsmanship. It is a dual homage if you like. The Sylvie bag, from Alessandro Michelle, is handmade in smooth leather and prominently displays beautifully ornate gold chain and buckle hardware on the front flap. The von Donia illustration also shows a striped Gucci blue and red ribbon bow which is often tied to form the Syvlie’s handle.
