SO Black Box Calf Kelly Retourne 35
- In Stock
An HermÃ¨s Kelly bag is already a special and unique purchase but this particular all-black iteration is truly a rare, collector's piece. Every feature of this bag from the leather down to the hardware and keys is all black. The bag is exponentially more difficult to purchase from the brand and requires having built an intimate relationship with the French fashion house. Includes lock, clochette, and two keys. Please note, this item does not include shoulder strap.
About the Kelly: First designed in 1932, the Kelly was introduced as a travel bag that was referred to as the sac à dépêches. It was then renamed to the Kelly after actress Grace Kelly was photographed numerous times with the bag (most notably, while she was pregnant and using it to cover her baby bump). The impeccable craftsmanship, classic silhouette, scarcity, and unique history make the Kelly a must-have for any handbag collector. The two styles of Kelly are the Sellier (or Rigide) and Retourne (or Souple). The Sellier has a more structured, rigid shape with distinct corners and visible exterior stitching, while the Retourne has a more relaxed, softer shape that has rounded edges as though the bag were turned inside out. It can take a single Hermès craftsman up to 18 hours to construct each Kelly.
