Rare vintage Hermes bicolor Kelly Retourne rendered in Apple green and Blue Roy Gulliver leather and accented with gold tone hardware. Gulliver leather was discontinued in 1999 (and subsequently re-introduced in 2005 as Swift leather) and is known for its fine grain that is soft to the touch and reflects light, giving it a shimmer-like quality. Includes shoulder strap, lock, two keys and clochette.

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), with the Sellier having a more structured, rigid shape with distinct corners and visible exterior stitching, while the Retourne having a more relaxed, softer shape that has rounded edges as though the bag was turned inside out. It can take a single Hermès craftsman up to 18 hours to construct each Kelly.
