I've had my swift Birkin now for 6 months and it's still perfect. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to Vienna and I'd like to take my swift Birkin along. However, the weather says a bit of rain ... can swift handle a bit of water/rain at all? If not, then I guess I'm better off using my epsom Birkin.

TIA! :smile:

Wow...that's good news. I've been afraid to take mine when the weather looked "iffy". Thanks for the info. Have a great trip.

KATE I believe DUNA has a Swift 35cm Birkin. I believe it's kind of slouchy in a 35cm.....

La Van, rain is no problem for Swift. Just wipe it off. It also can handle oil or grease stains. Just wipe them off with a moist cloth or towel. Then pat with a dry cloth.

Thanks all!

Well, I'm back from Vienna! I decided to take my black epsom Birkin instead because it was easier to choose my outfits lol!

I went to Hermès and they had a beautiful 30cm Birkin in rouge imperial, suede leather, with palladium hardware. The SA said that rouge imperial only comes in suede ... it's not so lipstick red as rouge vif and not as dark as rouge h. I find rouge imperial to be a very good red neutral. I didn't get it because I'm not a fan of suede leather, but the color was beautiful.

The SA also confirmed that swift should be alright with rain.

I didn't get anything from H, but got other goodies (my main reason to fly to Vienna this weekend).
