Well, and this one is interesting, because it is the sister bag of my beloved Birkin, and I am curious for how much it will change the owner, as I was asked so many times last year, what the price would be. I guess it will be enough to buy two new ones, as it is the Shoulder Birkin Jean Paul Gaultier designed and this combination is truly unique.
Lot 698: A ROUGE GARANCE TOGO LEATHER “SHOULDER” Birkin, 41 cm, silver palladium hardware, keyfob & padlock, double handle. Year: 2007. (Sold for 7,650)
