M Square, 2009

The pinnacle of Birkin bags, the Himalayan Birkin is only made available to the most prestigious of clientele. Known the world over as a holy grail handbag, the Himalayan Birkin certainly makes a statement of opulence, excellence, and ultimate luxury. It is done in White Himalayan Niloticus Crocodile, its namesake taken from the monolithic and snowy Himalayan Mountains. Mountainous in its appearance and in its allure, this bag is truly elusive, with very select owners throughout the globe. This bag features two rolled top handles, Palladium Hardware, keys, clochette, and a matching Crocodile covered lock. The interior is done in expertly paired Gris Cendre Chevre Leather and features one slip pocket and one zip pocket. A truly incredible piece, this Himalayan Birkin is the capstone piece to any collection.
This bag is in Excellent Condition. The protective plastic is intact on the touret stem, base, and the clous. There is light scratching to the exposed hardware, light creasing to the sangles, and the handles are slightly bent and relaxed. The interior leather exhibits light scuffing to the base. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag and a rain protector.
