Lot Essay

Romantics have long explored the landscape of Paris through the creations of famous writers, such as Victor Hugo, Emile Zola and Ernest Hemingway. For contemporary romantics, there is one more fashionable choice from Hermès, which is the extremely rare, limited edition Fauboug Birkin. The design of this handbag is inspired by one of the most famous landmarks in the Parisian fashion industry: the flagship store of Hermès at 24 Rue de Faubourg. The elements of this iconic store are masterfully integrated into the details of the handbag, such as the windows, awnings and orange shopping bag. With this exquisite piece in your hands, it’s like taking a leisurely stroll in Saint-Honore Paris - romantic and poetic. This Faubourg Sous La Neige – which means Faubourg under the snow in English, is the latest edition of Faubourg Birkin, mimicking the breathtaking view of the flagship store covered by snow. This limited edition handbag is definitely one of the Hermès styles most worthy of collection and inheritance.
