Pop art sculpture. The desirable Hermès Birkin bag. What happens when these two icons unite? One hot-ticket auction item comes up for grabs.

Artist Jeff Koons customized Birkins and worked them into one-of-a-kind sculptures, which will sell to the highest bidders over the weekend in New York City. But these aren’t your average Birkins (as if such a thing even exists). Notable personalities donated the bags for this project, including Sofia Coppola, Marc Jacobs, and Diane von Furstenberg.
The winners of these covetable pieces won’t just have new décor for their living rooms – they’ll also be benefiting Project Perpetual, an art philanthropy that supports the United Nations Foundation.
