So this morning I went to Hermès to find out about my SO and to enquire about chevre colors..... First of all my SA confirmed that my SO had been accepted, and added that a couple of ladies had theirs refused, but I don't know what they wanted... Then I asked to see the chevre swatches...there were ...TWO... black and Cocoan!! There was only one bag in chevre and that was vert anis..She also looked at the order forms for the autumn arrivals, and there were only two Birkins arriving in Chevre, one in Potiron and the other in Vert Anis...So for the moment there's no way I can see Chevre in Caramel or Gold or any shade of Tan...But she said she'll keep it in mind and if anything arrives in chevre in tan colors she''ll call me...She also said, like everybody here, that chevre in red in gorgeous, in fact her opinion is that chevre is better in bold colors than in neutrals... Anyway, she'll keep a lookout for me for tans and reds, 'cause once we've worked out a color/leather combo, we'll order it at the Febuary Podium... Now, what I saw: Masai PM white Clemence Bolide 37 white clemence/toile combo (where are you Kristie?) Bolide 37 Clemence Raisin Bolide 1923 Swift Havanne Bolide 31 box black Bolide 31 box dark brown Plume Elan (smaller size) Vert Anis Bolide 27 blue Ostrich Bolide 27 Vache Liagee? in a color I'd never seen: a browny orange Evelyne Rouge Vermillion Clemence Plume 28 black box Bolide 37 Rouge H Clemence Various Garden Parties, the giant PB that's been there ages! No Kellys And, incredible but true.....not one, but two Birkins 35 both available!?!? My SA brought them out from the back, the boxes were still in plastic...One was in Clemence gold with Pall/H, and the other also was Clemence in Ebene with gold/H...I don't know if they had been waitlisted and then given up, or what, I didn't ask, I was so amazed... Anyway she showed me the Gold just in case I might have wanted it, but although I ADORE Clemence, I'm not mad about it in Gold, and also I want to change leathers, most of my bags are Clemence, Box and Courchevel....As soon as we finished looking at it, another SA asked if she could take it, so I imagine that it was sold there and then... I don't know what happened to the brown one, it dissapeared in the back again... So, this prooves that one CAN find a Birkin available in the shop, you just need a bit of luck!!!
