Thanks to their solid builds and thicker leathers, vintage Birkin bags are excellent workhorse for every day. Ardennes leather, now retired, is known for being durable and yet supple to touch.
This red Birkin 35 exudes confidence, grandeur and energy – a statement piece for the executives.
Colour – Rouge Vif (French for Bright Red), another classic vintage red colour after the deeper Rouge H. This passionate red is accentuated and sparked by yellow gold plated hardware.
Ardennes leather – This calfskin combined the scratch-resistant grain texture of Clemence/Togo with the thinness of Epsom. This crisp leather is one of the most durable H leathers, extremely robust against wears and water – an ideal material for daily use. This discontinued leather is now being hunted and sought by those who know.
Dual character – One of the main features of Birkin bag is its retractable flap, which can be flipped over for a more dressy look, or pulled back for a relaxed open-tote look.
Birkin bag in size 35 (cm) stays true to the 1984’s original concept that Hermès proposed to Jane Birkin – a spacious tote bag for every day, corporate, business meeting and travel. Since its debut, the Birkin bag has been the status symbol in fashion, and size 35 is the ultimate “Boss Bag” for its executive presence.
With generous capacity, sturdy structure, classic design and famed status, the B35 is well-liked by all genders.
