Hermes Birkin 35 Special Order Vert Olive & Sable Ostrich Palladium Hardware
The iconic Horseshoe Stamp that adorns Special Order Hermes bags today has only been around for about fifteen years. This exceptional Ostrich Birkin from 2006 is an example of a special order produced before the introduction of the HSS. With a body of Vert Olive and Sangles and Handles of Sable Ostrich, this 35cm Birkin evokes the golden light of the sun trickling through a dense forest canopy. Maintained exceptionally well with plastic still on the Palladium hardware, this rare vintage piece would not be produced today, as Hermes has all but ceased making Ostrich bags larger than 30cm as sourcing quality skins of size has become increasingly difficult.
