Soft, Etoupe taupe grey Kelly Retourne rendered in Clemence leather and accented with Palladium hardware. Clemence leather is a thick and durable calfskin with a medium textured grain known for resisting scratches, its ability to be refurbished, and a soft relaxed feel with use. 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.
