35cm Hermes Birkin Gris Cendre Himalaya £125,000

If there was a bag that truly rare… and we have one in 30cm and another in 35cm (price updated with 2015 price increase)

Gris Cendre Himalaya 013
Himalaya Gris Cendre was introduced in 2010 as an alternative to the White version and was an immediate hit.  Tamara Eccleston has one in 35cm and Holly Valance has one in a 30cm. But apart from them, the Gris Cendre is only ever seen on the pages of handbag related blogs like the purseforum, hermespurseforum and ladyhermezz.com.

We spoke to the “Head of Leather” in Paris about this in 2013, and his answer was typical of Hermes – can’t get the skin, can’t get the skin, can’t get the skin. Basically he said, the crocodile skin used to make Himalaya Birkin is not treated or coloured, and in the case of the Gris Cendre, the colour came from a very special breed of Nile Crocodile and put through a very special curing process.

 Word from people close to Hermes was that only one tannery had the technology to produce this Gris Cendre skin. Sadly, that tannery was taken over by LVMH in 2011, and Hermes can no longer obtain the skins required to make the Gris Cendre Himalaya.
Gris Cendre  came off the menu 2012 January Podium and have not returned since.  We heard that Hermes New York Madison put in an order for few Gris Cendre Himalaya, only one came in with all other orders were cancelled. Clients were offered the white version instead.  Hermes London Bond Street has only received one in 2013 with no sightings from the other of the four boutiques in London.
Gris Cendre Himalaya 016
 Well, LadyHermezz has been extremely fortunate to be able to offer two of the last remaining Gris Cendre (in the world ?). Our price reflects the absolute rarity of this bag, and possibly a piece of Hermes History. In years to come, the only place you will ever see a bag like this would be in the window display of Hermes mother ship on Rue Fouborg St. Hanore or the Hermes museum.
