    Hermes 42cm Havane Clemence Leather JPG Shoulder Birkin Bag with Gold Hardware
    Very Good Condition
    16.5" Width x 7" Height x 8" Width

    When Jean Paul Gaultier joined Hermes as their creative director, his first design was his namesake version of the Birkin. Now a classic and collectible, the JPG Shoulder Birkin marries form with function. The large bag is an excellent carry-all and with its elongated handles as well as oversized lock and hardware, gives the Birkin a whole new look. The warm Havana shade is a great color for all year. The soft Clemence leather is casual and comfortable. This JPG Shoulder Birkin is in Very Good Condition. The Clemence leather is extremely durable and each panel is in excellent condition. The corners show light scuffing and the hardware shows light scratching. The interior is in excellent condition. The Hermes signature on the front of the bag shows fading.
