About this style

The Hermes Kelly bag, like its sister bag -- the Birkin -- is a coveted and scarce bag. Like its muse, Grace Kelly, this bag is the definition of timeless elegance. The original prototype for this bag dates back to 1892 when Hermes developed a large bag to hold a saddle; the prototype was modified over the decades but the Kelly sold by Hermes today is similar to the Sac a Depeches introduced in the 1930s. In 1954, Grace Kelly was given the bag to use in the Hitchcock movie To Catch A Thief and she became an immediate fan. She wore it regularly after her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco and the media and public dubbed it the Kelly bag. It was officially called the Kelly in 1977.

The Hermes Kelly is immediately recognizable by its trapezium shape, its thin straps with metal plates on the end of each strap (one engraved) that meet on a center toggle, its single rolled handle and its bell shaped key fob (clochette) and matching lock. The Kelly is an outstanding piece of workmanship. Each Kelly bag takes up to 25 hours to produce and each is hand sewn, buffed, painted and polished by an Hermes skilled craftsman in Hermes' factories. The leathers come from a variety of tanneries and individual artisans produce each bag, so each is likely to have its own unique details. Typically, a Kelly features a date stamp which is a letter that signifies the year of production and a craftsman's stamp, which are a series of letters, numbers and/or symbols designating the specific person(s) who hand produced the bag. In addition to a wide range of leathers, the Kelly is produced in exotic skins such as ostrich, lizard and crocodile. The bag is typically accented by palladium plated or gold plated hardware. Unlike the Hermes Birkin, the Hermes Kelly has the advantage of having a shoulder strap enabling it to be worn on the shoulder, in addition to hand or forearm. This option makes it popular with younger Hermes devotees.
