Presenting here is a special-order (HSS / horseshoe stamp) Birkin 30 in Lime colour Chevre Mysore exterior, with Vert Anis colour interior and brushed gold hardware.
Chevre leather – most seasoned Hermes connoisseurs would recommend you this sturdy goatskin leather without a doubt. Rarer and more costly than the other regular H leathers, and majorly reserved for special-order items now, Chevre leather is known for being resistant against wears while remain naturally supple (kind of like a hybrid of Togo with Epsom!).
Interestingly, although Chevre leather has a “wet gloss” in appearance, its touch is actually dry and crisp. Holds its shape well, lighter weight and scratch resistance make it a winning combination.
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.
As one of the most-famous bags in history, the Birkin bag is renowned for its superior craftsmanship, finest leathers, investment value, exclusivity, being a status symbol and its famous holders.
The story of Birkin goes back to 1984 – On a flight from Paris to London, the then executive chairman of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas encountered the British actress Jane Birkin. Inspired by Jane’s quest for a spacious bag, Hermès created a modern design which based on the Haut A Courroies (HAC) saddle carrier, and named it the Birkin bag.
Hand-stitched following the traditional saddle making and with the advantage of finest leather, Hermès leather goods are made to last for generations and seamlessly complementing the timeless designs.
