Hermès Birkin 35 SO BLACK Matte Niloticus Crocodile PVD Black Hardware
Jean-Paul Gaultier’s tenure as creative director at Hermès came to an end with the release of the highly coveted So Black collection. This line of handbags, including the classic Birkin and Kelly models, features a thoroughly blacked-out design that has made it one of the most desirable and collectible groups ever produced. Among the rarest items in the collection are a very limited number of exotic So Blacks, such as this 35cm Birkin made of matte black Alligator and featuring unique black PVD-coated hardware that gives So Black bags their distinctive look. This particular bag has been kept in excellent condition for nearly a decade and is highly sought-after by collectors. As time passes, it will only become harder to find, making it a valuable addition to any collection. The Legend Lives On, so make it a part of your story.
