It is one of the most coveted handbags of all time, but with a price tag of around £8,000 the Hermés Birkin bag isn’t quite within every fashionista’s price range (unless you’re Victoria Beckham whose collection is worth a reported £1.5m).
But for arm candy fans on a budget, online handmade marketplace Etsy is selling a replica version of the much lusted after bag.
There’s just one catch: it is made out of Lego.
The 20 x 26 x 13 cm bag is described on the site as ‘fully functional’ and ‘designed for everyday use’. The £89 bag can be made to order in a variety of colours and is made from brand new Lego.
The site also states: ‘All the bricks used to make it are brand new (i.e. straight out of the box, never played with and of course only original LEGO bricks), so the bag has this amazing shine of new bricks.
‘It is very elegant, does not seem at all like a toy handbag.’
It has a flap that opens and closes, 2 big pockets inside and comes in a variety of colors- white, yellow, red, blue, light or dark grey, or multi-colored.
This is available for sale on etsy.com by Agnieszka Biernacka (who has an entire range of fabulous Lego products) but last I checked, this is out of stock.
I am completely obsessed with this and intend to check her store whenever I can so I can get my grubby paws on one of these babies.
Boyfriend, are you reading this? I would like one in every colour, thankyouverymuch.
