The Birkin Sellier first debuted in Spring/Summer 2015 in size 40 only. (Pic from @s2861301)

Fast forward to the Resort 2019 runway show, we see sightings of the Birkin Sellier again. It was only available as a push offer item in size 30 and 35 in Veau Naturelle and Veau Graine Monsieur for Spring.

It is however now available from podium for current Fall/Winter 2019. It now comes in size 25, 30, and 35. The various leathers available include Epsom, Veau Madame and Veau Monsieur.

So, what are your thoughts on the Birkin Sellier? Yes, no, maybe so? :giggle: Discuss! :nuts:

Thank you for this @Meta! Emphatic yes from me. When offered a BBB30 I hesitated for a moment thinking I'd prefer a Sellier but was told (a few weeks ago) it would be push only, so no gtee.

To hear now that it's PO (for current A/W19? Hasn't that passed or apologies if I'm mistaken on timing) is exciting but also sad for my wallet!

I think the Birkin is perfect for sellier, with it being a square tote and all. I'd love to see it in a soft leather, that contrast, like a swift... A mou Birkin sellier could be so cool.

There is a long Birkin Sellier thread starting from the first release here .

I think it's absolutely beautiful in the smaller sizes, but I've owned a Whitebus which is similarly structured and that level of structure in an open tote wasn't for me.

The sangle sizes look all over the map—-Is it just the pictures or are they trying different proportions?

Lol! Oliver you crack me up.

I don’t know, she’s kind of a snootier version of her Retourne cousin. As it is, I’m not all that crazy about seeing people carrying Birkins around in 5 inch stilettos with their wrists up in the air like they’re holding a teacup with a poised pinkie finger...It’s a tote bag for crying out loud, throw your cr@p in it and get moving....But as long as we can keep our heads and don’t start carrying it with evening gowns just because it’s Sellier, I’m all in. :smile:
