INTERNATIONAL SEEN - Hermés Birkin bag for babies? Tribute to popular bag made out of LEGO

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, which would make a great Christmas gift for stylish children, 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.
Describing the item, the site 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.'
Spot the difference: The Lego bag (L) would make the perfect gift for fashion savvy children, while the real version (R) is worth around £8,000

Prestigious luggage and accessories firm Hermés, who count many of the world's wealthiest women as fans, is known for luxury leather accessories.
Renowned for its immaculate finish and top quality materials, Hermès claims never to use any assembly lines with one craftsperson making a single handbag at a time, hand-stitching individual pieces to create the finished product.
The brand is rich in history, and some of its bestselling bags have intriguing stories behind them.
The iconic Kelly bag, one of Hermes most popular styles, was originally known as the Sac à dépêches when it was developed by Hermes in 1935.
In 1956, a photo of Grace Kelly, who had become the new Princess of Monaco, was pictured carrying the Sac à dépêches to hide her pregnancy.
Famous fans: Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian are big fans of the handbag- Victoria reportedly owns a collection worth £1.5m

Photographs were sent all over the world and put on the cover of Life magazine. As a result, the bag became known as the Kelly and has been hugely popular ever since.
The Birkin has similarly romantic roots, conceived as it was in honour of French star Jane Birkin. 
The Birkin was allegedly created after the company's CEO Jean Louis Dumas sat next to the actress on a Paris to London flight.
Birkin had been discussing her difficulty in finding a leather weekend bag, explaining her ideal.
Shortly after, in 1984, the bag she described arrived at her flat with a note from Dumas. Although nowadays the bag can be made to order, the design is still one of the most recognised in the fashion industry.

Dangerous curves: The shoot is one of Kim's raciest yet

She has modelled several sexy looks during her time in the spotlight. But Kim Kardashian's latest photo shoot for French magazine Factice could be one of her most daring yet. The 32-year-old displays her world-famous curves in several boudoir-inspired ensembles.

Vintage glamour: And for her most sexiest shot of all, and one that is bound to get boyfriend Kanye West's heart racing, is one of Kim sprawled across a mirrored coffee table

 Racy in lace: Kim Kardashian displays her world-famous curves in several boudoir-inspired ensembles for French fashion magazine Factice

First up Kim raises temperatures in a racy lace bra and panty set complete with suspenders and cream silk stockings.The brunette beauty's ensemble is topped off with a luxurious-looking fur coat and and giant diamond and enamel floral ring and matching bracelet. With her famous full lips heavily glossed, Kim does her best pout and smouldering stare for the camera.

This time instead of wearing her glossy locks down, she has them tousled up in a messy bedhead style. In another snap, Kim wears her hair down in a somewhat Fifties voluminous style. And the reality star is certainly every inch the pin-up girl in a beige satin lingerie set, this time paired with a darker fur coat and sky-high Christian Louboutin heels.
