Quick poll, ladies: if you’re lucky enough to own an authentic Hermes Birkin, would you ever let it touch the ground? Oliva Palermo’s black Birkin looks downright dejected carving a space for itself on the NYC pavement. Shouldn’t she just enlist her hot German model boyfriend to stand a respectful 3 paces behind her and act as her official Birkin handler? Shouldn’t this bag at least get its own cafe seat? These are the questions that plague us.
Olivia Palermo (who you may know from her 3 season stint on MTV’s “The City”, or if you’re from the city, for her amphibious Upper East Side/Brooklyn socialite lifestyle) and her man Johannes Huebl (who you may know for being stupidly good-looking) were recently spotted noshing pasta at Sant Ambroeus in the West Village, along with Huebl’s mother and several friends. We love the chunky knit sweater/pencil leggings/flats look just as much as the next girl, Olivia, but please, more respect for the Birkin!
