While Hermes has over 40 shades of blue in their repertoire, only a few are produced in exotic skins. This 35cm Porosus crocodile Birkin is done in Blue Sapphire, a rare shade that is deeper than Blue Electric yet brighter than Blue Marine. The near perfect scales on this bag appear translucent as the namesake stones of this multifaceted color. Smartly paired with Palladium hardware, this jewel of a bag has been kept in excellent condition.
