Have recently been offered a 30cm Rouge Vif Birkin with palladium h/w. Had to pass on it as it would have been the 4th H-bag this year. The others being a Fuschia Chevre Kelly, Fuschia Ostrich Kelly and Chartreuse JPG. If it had gold h/w, it would have been more challenging to pass on. As early as 2 months ago, I would have only wanted the ostrich Birkin in brighter and more conspicuous colours like Fuschia, Rouge Vif and Vert Anis. My preference seem to have changed after the most recent European trip. In Europe, the more popular colours seem to be the neutral shades (both for regular leathers and exotic skins) like black, grey, brown and beige shades with red being the most popular shade of bright colour. This seem more apparent in Paris. Having seen the several Gold/Cognac Ostrich Birkins on the arms of their sophisticated/classy owners, I am currently very convinced that I need a 30cm Gold Ostrich Birkin with Gold h/w. Since a Gold Birkin with Gold h/w and an Ostrich Birkin are 2 H-bags on my dream list, I thought I'll kill two birds with one stone! What do you fab H-lovers think? Would appreciate any feedback on the Ostrich Birkins you own and their colour versatility.
