Hermès Birkin 25 Touch Black Togo and Matte Alligator Gold Hardware
What’s the story with the Touch Birkin - a few years ago Hermès started crafting bags with just a “touch” of exotic leather. And it’s not just Birkins—Touch Kellys, Touch Picotins, and even Touch Baton de Craies have been spotted! These bags are considered “Limited Edition” for Hermès purposes and are quite rare. The Touch Birkin, naturally, is the most iconic of them all. In most cases, the Touch Birkin has “touches” of exotic leather—either crocodile or alligator—on the flap, sangles, handles, and clochette. The rest of the Birkin remains either Togo leather or Novillo leather. Togo is usually paired with shiny croc/alligator, while Novillo tends to go along with matte croc/alligator, but this is not a hard-and-fast rule as you can occasionally find the opposite combinations. Additionally, Hermès only releases Touch Birkins in a small selection of colors.
