Welcome to a new edition of Baghunter’s Bags of the Week. In this blog we showcase some carefully selected handbags from our range, all of which relate to a certain theme. This week we are looking at rare colors, specifically for Hermes bags. Hermes are known for their superb range of colors, however, some are extremely rare and more difficult to come across than others. Under the spotlight this week is a Hermes Birkin 35 Bougainvillea PHW, a Hermes Birkin Turquoise PHW, and A Hermes Kelly 35 Mimosa Alligator. So, let’s take a look at each in more detail.
Hermes Birkin 35 Bougainvillea PHW
First up we have an exquisite Hermes Birkin 35 Bougainvillea PHW. Crafted from the popular Clemence leather which offers a grainy finish and durability, it is the color of this bag that immediately catches the attention. The Bougainvillea color is one of the rarest Hermes colors and can be described as a light tone of red with raspberry and pink undertones. This particular color is extremely difficult to find elsewhere and is a very hard color to obtain on a Clemence leather.
Perfectly complimenting the Bougainvillea color is the palladium hardware found on the base studs, clasp, and lock. The palladium is very hardwearing and matches the light red tones wonderfully. Other standout features found on this bag include the side panels, where additional material is found to allow for extra space inside the bag without compromising the shape. The handles are coated after being dyed to help maintain the color and will always stand upright.
Measuring 14” x 11” x 7”, this size 35 bag has the capacity to hold much more than simply the essentials and makes a great day or office bag. You can comfortably fit in a small laptop, change of clothes, or extra pair of shoes. Acquired in excellent condition, the bag shows very minor signs of corner wear. It comes with the lock, keys, clochette, and sleeper.
Hermes Birkin Turquoise PHW
Second on our list is a fantastic and eye-catching Hermes Birkin Turquoise PHW. Crafted from Swift leather, a leather which boasts a smooth finish and high durability, this bag is immediately striking due to the turquoise color. This shade of turquoise is exclusive to Hermes and notoriously difficult to perfect on a smooth leather such as the Swift leather. You will notice from the pictures how easily the color picks up the light and reflects it back, making the bag shine.
In addition to the rare turquoise color, the bag also boasts palladium hardware. The silver color of the hardware on the base studs, lock, and clasp, complements the overall theme of the bag wonderfully. You can also see the bag offers soft side panels which are flexible in their shape, allowing you to place additional items inside the bag without compromising the shape in any way. The other standout feature is the handles which stand upright at all times are have been treated for high usage.

Acquired in very good condition, the bag shows very minor signs of corner wear, some scratches at the bottom, and minor scratches on the interior of the bag. It comes with the lock, keys, clochette, and sleeper.
Hermes Kelly 35 Mimosa Alligator
Some might say we have saved the best for last this week with this stunning Hermes Kelly 35 Mimosa Alligator. Crafted from rare and exotic matte alligator skin, this bag boasts scale patterns that are completely unique. As you can see from the picture below, the scales are larger in the center of the bag and small at the edges, offering a stunning pattern. The Mimosa color is among the rarest to find in the Hermes catalogue and is comparable to a bright shade of yellow.
Boasting palladium hardware on the studs, clasp, and lock, the complete look of this bag is simply stunning. You can see an up-close picture of the Hermes stamp below where you can see a small square beside the stamp indicating this is indeed alligator skin. The subtle scale pattern makes it extremely difficult to dye this type of skin and it would have been a long and drawn out process to get the perfect Mimosa color on this bag.
