Hermès Gold JPG II Birkin 42
Hermès’ second-generation JPG Birkin (designed by John Paul Gaultier) is also known as a Shoulder Birkin! It’s shorter than both the standard Birkin and the Birkin HAC. And with its longer drop of 6.75 inches from the top of the dual rolled handles, it’s perfect for slipping over the shoulder and tucking under the arm. Here, in gold Clémence leather with white topstitching and a bottom measurement of 42 centimeters, it’s considered mid-size. In very good condition from 2009 (stamped with an M in a square), it comes with a dustbag and box. There is wear on the hardware and feet, outside on the bottom, on the top of the handles, and a few marks on the outside leather. Palladium is featured in the feet, lock, key, clochette, zipper, and Hermès turnlock. Lined in matching-colored leather, the interior boasts one zipped pocket and two slides. JPG turns the tables on “short and squat” with this beautiful Birkin’s distinctive styling!
