The Hermès Birkin is probably one of the most coveted and desired bags in the world.
While the classic Birkin tote bags are popular, there is a very special something about the JPG (for Jean Paul Gaultier, Hermès' chief designer) Shoulder Birkin with extra long handles, oversized "chunky" hardware and extra wide soft body (a whopping 42cm). True to its name, the JPG is carried very well on the shoulder with the extra long handles (almost 6 inches) and the Clemence slouch. The model is extremely stylish and modern as well with the oversized cadena, larger strap guides and larger buckles.
The Black Clemence leather on this item is a wide grain, substantial weight leather that contrasts well with the Gold Plated hardware. EXTREMELY hard to find in this color/hardware combination, most JPGs have palladium HW. One thing we love about the oversized hardware is that it goes well with the style - the large front lock almost "balances" out the wide body, and the bag functions well even with the front buckles closed and lock attached.
The Clemence leather is buttery soft, wide grain and slouchy, contrasting well with the long rolled shoulder straps. The bag is in excellent condition, with no major signs of wear - corners are also intact and pristine.
