About this style

Hermes introduced the Kelly Cut in the fall/winter collection in 2006. The long, sleek lines with the small handle accented by the iconic Kelly straps and toggle was immediately embraced by celebrities and the fashion elite worldwide as one of the most fashionable evening clutches. The Kelly Cut clutch is produced in classic and seasonal colors, in different leathers, exotic skins and hardware. Given its high fashion profile and timeless beauty, the Kelly Cut is one of the most requested Hermes bags.

The Hermes Kelly bag, like its sister bag -- the Birkin -- is a coveted and scarce bag. Like it_s 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 used in the Hitchcock movie To Catch A Thief and she became an immediate fan. She wore it regularly after her marriage to Price Rainier of Monaco and the media and public dubbed it the Kelly bag. It was officially called the Kelly in 1977.

The Kelly is immediately recognizable by its trapezium shape, its thin straps with metal plates on end of each strap (one engraved) that meet on a center toggle, its single rolled handles and its bell shaped key fob (clochette) and matching lock, it is an outstanding piece of workmanship. Each bag takes up to 25 hours to produce and each is hand sewn, buffed, painted and polished by Hermes skilled craftsman in Hermes' factories. Inasmuch as leathers come from a variety of tanners and bags are produced by individual artisans, each bag is likely to have its own unique details. Typically, a Birkin 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 wide range of leathers, Birkins are produced in exotic skins such as ostrich, lizard and crocodile. The bag is typically accented by palladium plated or gold plated hardware. Unlike the Birkin, the 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.
