Hermès Birkin 25 Black Togo with Gold Hardware
The Birkin is an iconic bag, and no version is more classic than black and gold. This combination stretches back all the way to the beginning of Hermes. The epitome of stylish sophistication, a Black Birkin with Gold hardware is almost a requirement for any Hermes collector. This example, done in Togo leather which is popular for its soft texture and durability, is only 25cm across, the hottest size produced. Paired perfectly with gleaming Gold hardware, this is a timeless classic.
The term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a colored finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms refer to the tone or color of the hardware and not the actual material used. If hardware is composed of precious solid metals this will be referenced in the description.
