Limited Edition Lime & Gris Perle Epsom Candy Kelly Retourne 32
A rare and highly collectible find from Hermès, this coveted Kelly is from the house's Candy series, and features a Lime yellow exterior rendered in Epsom leather, a contrasting Gris Perle grey interior, cream top stitching and Palladium hardware. This limited edition series was the breakout release of creative director Christophe Lemaire after Jean Paul Gaultier's departure in 2010, and is incredibly sought after to this day. Epsom leather is the most lightweight and easy to clean of all Hermès leathers, and is embossed for a consistent grain and increased durability that will hold shape and does not scratch easily. Includes lock, clochette, two keys and detachable 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.
