I have been dying to add a YELLOW birkin to my collection. It is the only colour I dont have. I have been looking for 4 years now and I always miss my chance. I have been offered a BIRKIN 35 SOLEIL TOGO PHW new condition. The price is 4500€ MORE EXPENSIVE than what it would cost from the store. Should I finally buy it, or should I wait for this summer's JAUNE POUSSIN (a light chalky yellow) and try my luck finding one...
I just think that SOLEIL is the perfect timeless yellow and beats all the others but the price is high....

If it's the only colour you are missing I think you should go for it. You have been waiting 4 years for a similar colour and Jaune Poussin is really not comparable to Soleil imo. It is a pretty yellow, but it's not the same intensity that you would get from Soleil. As for the price, is it possible to negotiate with the seller? I think 4500 euro on top of the regular price is a bit hefty.

If the bag has never been used, the price sounds quite ok. I agree soleil is a much nicer yellow than jaune poussin.

Totally different yellows - if you want vibrant then "baby chick" is not the color you're looking for. IMO it is pretty true to the name (as is Soleil). €4500 is a pretty typical reseller markup on a new bag sad to say.
