Hermès Birkin Touch 25 Beton Matte Alligator & Togo Palladium Hardware
The Birkin Touch represents a novel and distinct twist on the classic Hermès design. This unique version is characterized by a Togo leather body complemented by Matte Alligator leather adorning the flaps, handles, and sangles. The exquisite pairing of these two leathers, particularly in the appealing shade of Beton, contributes to a truly eye-catching ensemble.
The introduction of the Touch Birkin traces back to a few years ago when Hermès began to incorporate a "touch" of exotic leather into their bag designs. This trend isn't restricted to Birkins alone—other examples include the Touch Kellys, Touch Picotins, and even Touch Baton de Craies. These variations are regarded as "Limited Edition" in Hermès' collection and are quite scarce, adding to their allure.
The Touch Birkin stands as the most iconic among these limited edition bags. It typically features "touches" of exotic leathers, such as crocodile or alligator, which are thoughtfully incorporated into the flap, sangles, handles, and clochette. These distinctive touches serve to elevate the bag's overall aesthetic appeal, making it a coveted piece among fashion enthusiasts.
