Dress to impress– a ‘MUST-HAVE’ vintage Hermès Kelly handbag in your wardrobe for any occasion.
Hermès Kelly bag has been an iconic fashion item for decades. It is very valuable, whether you buy a new one or a vintage Kelly bag. Every Hermès Kelly bag is unique and every bag is hand made by a craftsman. It takes about 25 hours per bag and the Kelly bag has 2600 hand stitches. The Hermès bag got its name from a “glamour moment” in 1956, when Grace Kelly (actress, fashion icon and Princess of Monaco) used the ‘Sac à Dépêches’ as a shield to cover up her pregnant belly. She received the bag in 1954 to use in the Hitchcock movie ‘To Catch a Thief’ and fell in love with it instantly. Although from then on everyone called the bag ‘the Kelly Bag’, it was not until 1977 it officially got renamed…
Condition B: Vintage-preowned – good condition. Some signs of gentle use or wear. Moderate wear on based corners, light scratches on the hardware. Made in France, Signed Hermès, leather. Delivered with Leather clochette, lock, keys and dust bag.
