HERMES 30cm Togo Birkin Bag Bleu Brighton.
This Hermés Birkin bag embodies the quintessence of style and luxury due to its impeccable design, craftsmanship, rarity and significance. As one of the the most iconic and desired pieces from the Hermés handbag collection, its value only increases. In addition, this particular HERMES 30cm Togo Birkin Bag Bleu Brighton features Togo genuine leather.
Togo is currently one of the more popular calfskins in the Hermés collections; introduced in 1997. This leather derives from baby calf and therefore tends to be more lightweight than others, yet holds shape extremely well. As a result, Togo tends to be the choice leather for larger bags if rigid structure is of preference. The Togo texture is smooth and has a pebble-like feel. Since the skin is also grainy, it is scratch-resistant and durable. Most damage can repair easily with proper conditioning, which makes Togo is a great choice for those who want to get prolonged use out of their bag. We recommend professional light maintenance of this leather in relation to other Hermés calfskins. Color is “Bleu Brighton” with silver-tone hardware.
The Birkin Bag became an instant icon – introduced to the brand in the 1980’s and named after English actress/singer Jane Birkin. Apparently, Ms. Birkin had a mishap on a plane – when she tried to fit her ubiquitous straw bag into an overhead compartment. The bag’s contents spilled all over the floor, which made Birkin verbally express frustration about not being able to find THE perfect stylish yet practical travel bag. Ms. Birkin coincidentally sat next to the Axel Dumas, the CEO of Hermés. As complete strangers, they sketched the perfect bag together for the duration of the trip. One year later Mr. Dumas presented “The Birkin Bag” whose chic sophisticated design was also spacious for every day use.
The design has since been crafted in various sizes, and continues to be incredibly sought after many decades. The long wait lists to purchase the style added mystique in acquisition among admirers and collectors alike.
Condition is Pristine. This collectible bag includes dust bag, clochette, lock and key. Signed “Hermés“.
