Special Order bags have always been a level up from solid color Birkin's and Kelly's, but special order exotic bags are on a whole 'nother plane of existence. While many special order bags are done in clashing, bright colors, this example was created in three expertly selected shades: Miel, Poussiere, and Ficelle, each of which compliments the other two perfectly, along with the warm gold hardware. Dated 2007, this bag does not feature the now ubiquitous horseshoe stamp associated with Hermes special orders. This stamp was first introduced in 2006, and for a time could be withheld from a custom piece at the client's request. This outstanding bag has been kept in immaculate condition, the shiny Porosus crocodile gleams like it did when it first left the atelier over ten years ago.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
