Hermès Birkin 35 Gris Perle Box & Vibrato Leather Palladium Hardware
Vibrato, oh Vibrato! It's a rare and unique treat, a vintage material that Hermès no longer makes. Vibrato was a popular material used by Hermès in the past, known for its colorful and graphic striped pattern. The technique involved stacking layers of leather and carefully slicing them into thin sheets to reveal the pattern. This technique was used on a variety of Hermès bags, adding a unique and playful touch to the luxurious designs.
The 35cm Birkin featured in this description is an unusual piece, with its monochromatic color scheme of shades of gray, black, and white. It is framed with Gris Perle box leather, which adds a touch of texture and contrast, and is finished with palladium hardware for a sleek and modern look.
Despite its restrained color palette, this Birkin is still a striking and sophisticated piece. It has maintained its style for nearly twenty years, proving to be a timeless and classic design. As a rare and discontinued material, this Vibrato Birkin is a highly sought-after collector's item.
