Hermes - Kelly 20cm Mini II Blue Glacier Ostrich with Gold Hardware
The Kelly bag came to success when it was first paparazzied on the bumpy belly of Princess Grace Kelly in 1956. During the next 20 years, every woman wanted to buy “Grace Kelly’s bag”. Her name became so linked to the bag that Hermes renamed the “Sac à Dépêches” bag to “Kelly” in 1977. This was the start of the story we all know. The Kelly II, released in 2000 as an update to the original Kelly, has a double ring at the top handle, designed to attach to a shoulder strap.
This bag, defined as “simple and perfectly made”, exists in many combinations of leathers (around 20) and countless colors. Created in eight different sizes ranging from 15 to 50cm, every bag requires 20 hours of work. As is the case for other Hermes products, the Kelly bag is handmade by an unique craftsman throughout the whole process. Said craftsman also stamps his initials on the bag.
