Thanks. Could my SA be incorrect? I asked specifically and was told that the Birkin Sellier could be done in Ostrich, Chèvre, Epsom, or Togo

Some SAs are in fact not very knowledgeable about SOs...we have seen that before. Togo isn’t even possible for Kelly Selliers...

The list is the same everywhere / any country or store. It doesn’t change. I mean you can always try to place something not allowed but pretty sure Paris will just reject it.

I placed mine recently and according to my SA, the only option for Birkin Sellier is Epsom and Crocs.

Thank you both. In that case, I might go with the Kelly 28 Sellier. Recommendations between Ostrich and Chèvre in that case?

I have two Kelly sellier SO in Togo, it’s a shame that it’s no longer an option for SO.

I just got offered my first SO and would love some help narrowing down my options! I've settled on four options, but unsure about interior colors for Options 1 & 2, which I am leaning more toward given other bags in my collection. I feel like Options 3 & 4 would be easier to come by and although they won't be verso, it'll be more feasible to encounter as a regular offer.

I love warm pinks with GHW but have had the toughest time getting one in a size I like, so thought this could be the best opportunity to cross a bag off my wish list, but I am very torn between RA Epsom & RL Chevre. Would also love advice regarding the interior pairings for Azalee & Lipstick. HELP! :sad:

Option 1
K25 Sellier Epsom Verso BGHW
Exterior: Rose Azalee
Interior: Orange Poppy, Capucine, Bougainvillea, Abricot, Malachite
Stitching: Tonal

Option 2
K25 Sellier Chevre Verso BGHW
Exterior: Rose Lipstick
Interior: Orange Poppy, Capucine, Bougainvillea, Abricot, Malachite
Stitching: Tonal

Option 3
Mini Kelly II Ostrich Verso PHW
Exterior: Gris Agate
Interior: Rose Pourpre or Rose Mexico
Stitching: Tonal

Option 4
Mini Kelly II Chevre Verso PHW
Exterior: Magnolia
Interior: Bleu Zellige or Bleu Electrique
Stitching: Tonal

My current B/K collection is as follows so what is most lacking is a non-Mini Kelly and currently palladium predominates in terms of hardware:
  • MKII: Epsom Noir GHW, Ostrich Bleu Glacier GHW
  • B25: Togo Bambou GHW, Togo Rose Pourpre PHW, Togo Gold PHW
  • B30: Togo Lagoon PHW, Ostrich Rose Tyrien PHW, Ostrich Bleu Paon PHW, Croc Vert Olive PHW
Appreciate any help!

Hi!

Given your bag collection, I’d suggest Option 2 (bc I personally prefer Chèvre) w either Orange Poppy or Abricot. Hope that helps!

Thank you for your help! I really love the idea of an orange interior too. Will update with a final decision when the order is placed. :smile:

I would choose option 1 or 2, with malachite lining.
This because it would be very contrasting between outside and inside and that's the whole point with verso bags (in my opinion).

Just came back from looking at options for my so and wanted some advice from you all .

I’m sure I want a Kelly 25 sellier lime verso in chèvre

Not sure for the interior should I go with magnolia or rouge de coeur . The lighting is diff in the photos but it’s lime in both . Thx u all
I would go for magnolia.... Red and yellow can have McDonald's connotations :biggrin:
