Hermès Birkin 25 Rouge Grenat Matte Alligator and Togo Gold Hardware
The Touch Birkin from Hermès, a highly desired limited edition bag, exudes luxury with its subtle integration of exotic leather. This iconic piece is a part of a collection that also includes other styles like the Kelly, Picotin, and Baton de Craies. The Touch Birkin distinguishes itself as the emblematic piece of this lineup, incorporating refined accents of crocodile or alligator leather on the flap, handles, sangles, and clochette. The rest of the bag is meticulously crafted from either Togo or Novillo leather.
An interesting nuance is that Togo leather is generally paired with glossy crocodile or alligator, while Novillo leather complements the matte version of these exotic skins. However, this pairing is not set in stone, as demonstrated by the exquisite combination of Matte Alligator and Togo leather in the harmonious Rouge Grenat variant.
The Touch Birkin is launched in a highly restricted color palette, further amplifying its rarity and desirability among collectors. This bag, in particular, is renowned for its unique character and is passionately pursued by collectors worldwide.
