The Hermes Kelly...available in eight sizes from a petite 15cm to a very roomy 50cm, the Hermès Kelly as we know it – redesigned many times since its conception as a saddle bag in 1892 – came into being in the 1930s as a spacious travel holdall called the Sac à Dépêches. Grace Kelly fell in love with what is now known as the Hermès Kelly during filming of Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief, but wasn’t until the wasn’t until she was Princess of Monaco – and famously used the bag to shield her pregnancy from the paparazzi in 1956 – that the bag became famous worldwide. Officially named the Kelly bag in 1977, the bag is formed of thirty-six leather pieces, six-hundred-and-eighty hand stitches, sixteen small studs and takes over 40 hours to each be made by hand. Much like its Birkin cousin, the Hermès Kelly regularly re-sells for far more than its retail price and is a timeless, iconic design that is coveted worldwide.
