When Blue Brighton first appeared, Hermes produced it solely in crocodile, making the shade extremely desirable and difficult to find. Examples of exotic Blue Brighton Birkins sat atop the auction record charts for years. Recently Hermes reintroduced this fan favorite shade in leather. The periwinkle blue tilts toward purple, and in this store-fresh 30cm Birkin, is paired perfectly with Gold hardware. This Clemence leather bag is a fantastic example of a color that is again becoming quite difficult to find.
The Hardware has been changed by Hermes with plastic, the middle does not have plastic — the body of the bag looks fresh and new, no marks. Some press marks inside. The bag presents as Pristine.

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. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
