In an interview with designer handbag enthusiast PurseBop, Jamie revealed that her love for Hermès began more than 15 years ago.


She related, “Being the ultimate stealth wealth symbol that a Birkin or a Kelly was, everyone was suddenly lusting after it, which made it really hard for me to lay hands on one.

“For me, it wasn’t about what it symbolized but truly how user-friendly Hermès bags were.

“Even until today, I still find that the B or the K suits my lifestyle the best.

“They fit the stuff I need for a day, and it’s really easy to find my things in them!”

Her very first Hermès was a “Blue Jean [Togo Birkin 30cm] bag with white stitches,” which could retail up to $22,775 or P1.1 million online.
