One color that has captured the interest of Hermes aficionados for years is the deep red that until recently was produced exclusively in exotic skins: Bordeaux. This example, a 35cm Bordeaux Birkin done in shiny Porosus Crocodile with Gold hardware, is sometimes referred to as the ‘Victoria Beckham Birkin’ as the former Spice Girl who is known to have a vast Birkin collection was photographed many times carrying the combo. The rich wine-inspired tone has been in production for decades, and pairs exceptionally well with Gold hardware. This example has been maintained in exceptional condition.
35cm: 14" W x 7.5" D x 10.75" H

The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
