Menthe is considered one of the most unusual shades of green Hermes has produced. Toeing the line between turquoise and mint, this hue brings to mind the enchanting glow in a glass of Creme de Menthe. Rendered here in Clemence leather as a 30cm Birkin, the color is finished perfectly with a pairing of chocolate resin and Palladium hardware. Maintained in exceptional condition for almost a decade, this rare example is one Birkin that almost never comes on to the market, as this striking color is prized by the lucky collectors who have managed to find it.
Material: Clemence Leather
Collection: 2012, P Square
30cm: 12" W x 6.25" D x 9" H
