In the eyes of the Hermes collector community, if you’re serious about pink, you know it’s not just a color; it’s a collection.

 

Hermes pinks are one of a kind and highly sought after. The brand’s growing portfolio of pink hues is truly captivating. But what’s even more is that depending on whether you’re looking at Swift or Taurillon Clemence or Epsom, these iconic pinks appear lighter or darker. Like other sought-after Hermes colors such as blues and greens, pink historically performs well at auctions compared to other colors. It is no surprise that due to the seasonality of pink releases, certain hues have garnered a cult following. 

In this guide to Hermes pinks, we’re sharing some of the many peachy shades you can find that are known for being undoubtedly high in demand. In the age of “barbiecore” what better time than now to up your pink game? As you contemplate which pink is your favorite, these comparisons will decipher what makes each Hermes pink distinct.

This is a magenta pink with purple undertones. We see this color typically used in exotic skins, such as shiny and matte alligator, as well as crocodile. Hermes distinguishes their exotics using a unique stamp symbol. Learn more about what those symbols are, here. Because this pink shade is used only on exotics, this pink is incredibly rare.
