Hermès' Birkin Bag Reimagined As NFT in New Auction

The ‘Baby Birkin’ is rarer than the physical handbag.

From a dictionary definition and viral memes, to phone cases and artworks, the world of non-fungible tokens (NFT) seems to be ever-growing as artists and companies continue to roll out their takes on the recent craze. Now, Hermès‘ iconic Birkin bag has been given the same treatment in a new auction held by e-commerce platform Basic.Space.

Titled Baby Birkin and created by Mason Rothschild and Eric Ramirez, the digital piece of art is a 2000×2000 pixel animation of the designer bag. A transparent version of the luxury accessory is captured pregnant with a baby throughout a 40-week-long pregnancy. The visual, which serves as an ironic interpretation of the purse known for its exclusivity, is accompanied by a space-themed sound. As of now, the artwork has 17 bids so far with the highest at $6,000 USD.

You can head to Basic.Space to bid on the Baby Birkin until May 20.
