Hermes Birkins are famous for being hard to get, generally offered exclusively to loyal customers, but even rarer is the opportunity to special order a custom Birkin. Each season Hermes adjusts the specifications allowed for Horseshoe stamp or HSS bags, and there is the possibility that any HSS bag could be a unique combination produced only once. This example is particularly unusual. The majority of the bag is a classic 25cm Birkin in Black Togo leather with Gold Hardware, but through the special order process, certain aspects have been changed. The exterior features white deviating stitching which stands out against the black showcasing the hand-work that goes into each and every Hermes bag. But most exciting is the neon Lime interior which glows as soon as the bag is opened. Produced earlier this year, this is an exceptional store-fresh Birkin that is both classic and unique.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
