Hermes Limited Edition Kiwi & Vert Veronese Epsom Candy Kelly Retourne 35cm
"Fashion fades, only style remains the same."
Coco Chanel
A rare, and highly collectible find from Hermès, this coveted Kelly is from the house's Candy series, and features a Kiwi green exterior rendered in Epsom leather, a contrasting Vert Veronese dark green interior, white contrast 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, it 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), 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.
