Hermès Birkin 30 Rouge Vif Swift with Gold Hardware
Rouge Vif is Hermès’ classic bright red. Found on bags dating back decades, it is distinguished from other shades of red by its slightly pink stitching. This Birkin 30 is a fine example, sporting the shade proudly on smooth Swift leather. Paired with Gold hardware, the effect is bold and luscious. Dating from 2006, this Birkin has been used lovingly and displays a patina of delicate wear including hardware scratches, corner scuffs and a faint ‘smiley’ mark under the spindle.
