  1. If I had the opportunity to choose my next 35 Birkin (which I do not, sadly), which would you favor: black box w/ruthenium (iffy availability) or indigo Barenia (also iffy availability!)? I had thought I wanted box as I liked its dressier appearance...but I love Barenia.
  2. I like indigo so that would be my choice. Box sort of freaks me out with the blister issue
  3. This was a difficult one, I went for box in the end as it is so classic and I love ruthenium. If I saw both bags IRL at the same time, I might change my mind though, if the indigo was very very dark.
  4. If it makes any difference, I already have 2 black Birkins with PH, but neither is in a smooth leather. Uh and also already an ebene barenia. But that gives you an idea how I feel about barenia.
  5. I voted for indigo - that was before I saw/read you already had 2 blacks. I feel indigo is dark but there is enough blue to make it look different .. UKWIM?
    HTH :smile:
  6. Totally, and I agree completely.
  7. Boy, that's a tough choice (and you've only given us two things to choose from - haha). I would go for ANYTHING in indigo.
  8. If you have two black birkins already...you should go with indigo.
  9. Here's a thought - indigo box?
  10. ohhh, indigo box would be my vote!
  11. Yes, indigo box!
  12. I just doubt that you're going to be able to find Indigo Barenia in something as large as a B35 right now. Some people have been waiting YEARS for Barenia Birkins.
    But indigo box is simply divine.

    I THINK I just prefer that gorgeous natural colored Barenia. Especially with patina.
  13. If I already had a Box calf Birkin, I'd go for almost anything Barenia for the next one.

    If I didn't have a Birkin yet and this were to be my first one or one and only, I'd do Box calf.
  14. Indigo!!!
  15. I wish I could help but newbie here has never seen Barenia! Next time at H, I must check the leather book....
