ITA and would like to add that i prefer traveling with the black bMy first Birkin was black, and my second was gold - both with palladium hardware. You can't go wrong with either, though the black is a little dressier in my opinion and the gold is a great everyday bag. Have fun deciding!
Completely agree. i do feel the same can be said about gold also,,, = =What a wonderful and happy dilemma! I have both Birkins; Was blessed to be offered the Gold w/PHW as a walk-in first and the Black w/GHW a month later. LOL! Love them both dearly and will use them forever. You can't go wrong with either but if I were to only have one...I would definitely, without a doubt, go for Black. It is timeless, classic, truly perfection. Good luck deciding!
+1 i prefer ghw on both colors alsoThey are both such classic colors. It also depends the size, leather and hardware you are offered. If you truly think it will be your only birkin, it's also important to pick the right size for you (30 or 35 depending on your height/physique and what you want to use it for), and also whether you love the leather. And I like GHW with those colors so I would personally opt for that too. So many things to consider! I think every person gravitates more to one or the other of these classic colors. For me, I have very few browns in my wardrobe and a lot of colors and monochrome so black is a perfect neutral. It just depends which one you could see as your go-to bag. Good luck!
