Hermes Birkins are famously hard to get, only offered to loyal customers of the brand, but even rarer is the opportunity to special order a custom Birkin. Shown here is a very limited edition, the Officier Birkin done in Vert Cyprès Togo and Bleu Zellige officer stripes and interior lining. The Officier Birkin - Military aesthetics have always been a draw of inspiration for fashion, from camouflage prints, to padded shoulders, and to severe structured silhouettes. Hermès turned their attention to this trend in a subtle way with the Officier Birkin in 2018. Incorporating two Swift leather stripes down the left side of the front, the Officier Birkin evokes the decorated shoulder sleeve insignia of uniformed officers, hence the name Officier Birkin.
