Hermes is known for its exceptional craftsmanship and timeless designs, and one of the most coveted colors in their collection is pink. With a growing portfolio of pink hues, Hermes pinks are truly captivating. Depending on the leather material, such as Swift or Taurillon Clemence, or Epsom, these pinks can appear lighter or darker, making each shade unique.

It’s no wonder that certain hues of pink have gained a cult following due to their seasonality.
