Aaaahhhh........... I love those barenia Picotins in MM. *Lust*
And the HAC - AL, you know I have admired yours for a long time.
Thimp - yours is there already? Awww, what a fabulous bag... I think it deserves a special reveal with lots of different pics in different lights!
Ok, I know this sounds so silly, but today I had the GREAT pleasure of touching Kipp's amazing barenia birkin. And may I say, I really didn't understand what the whole big deal about barenia was until today.
The leather is just amazing. It feels luxurious. It is slightly thicker than box, which is oh SO smooth and silky. And not to mention the color. Hers is natural, I think? (Sorry Kipp if I am wrong! ) And it is the richest color of gold. I thought I wanted a gold togo or clemence birkin, until I saw barenia and realized that's what I want.
And oh, may I say how BEAUTIFUL is a well-loved barenia birkin? I mean, I've never ever seen a new one, but I am SO in love with a well-loved barenia.
Would you please share your beautiful pictures of barenia and also share why you love barenia? Can't wait to hear your inputs!
And ladies never forget the smell of Barenia. I'm sorry I can't explain it but the scent is heavenly!!! I should have never gotten a Barenia bag, on the back of mine is a huge nose print!! (I kept leaning over to smell it and my nose left a mark!!!!) Good stuff!!
I have never seen, touched or smelled barenia, but, strange and it may sound, it haunts me. Really. After reading the description of it and seeing photos, I knew that I MUST HAVE IT! It reminded me of an really old Coach leather agenda I had in high school (before it was sold to Sarah Lee, and when it was still made my by hand by craftsmen in NYC). I would rub it constantly to rush the beautiful patina I knew it would acquire with time. I know that Barenia is the luxe version of this, and am just aching for it! Just have to find exactly the one I want...which I know might take years.
XOXO, you are too funny!!! Thank you so very much for your kind words about my bag. It IS amazing, I will admit it! And I'm so very lucky!! I think that not only are there the sensual aspects (tactile and olfactory) of the bag, it also it is very romantic. I hope that you (and everyone else who desires one) are able to find one!!!!
