While Hermes is known for their incredible colors, their selection of blues alone spans over forty shades. Some hues such as Blue Jean and Blue Marine are produced for decades, while other shades are more elusive, only popping up for one season before seemingly disappearing entirely. Blue Agate is one such color. Lighter than Blue Sapphir, less intense than Blue Electric, Agate is a true blue. It doesn’t lean towards green or purple, and you wouldn’t describe it as dark or light. Though a perfect blue like this may seem simple, somehow it's rendered with endless facets of simply more blue. The lustrous gold hardware amplifies the effect on this 35cm Birkin done in Epsom leather which brings this shade to the next level.
