Exclusively handcrafted pieces are a hard row to hoe, and especially if it takes an average of 18 hours for a craftsmen of the most luxurious manufacturing house- Hermes, to create it’s magic. So are you ready to embrace this trend of Kelly handbags? Featuring a Kelly turnlock, a clochette with keys and a trapezium silhouette, it’s the scoop from your favourite Hermes that’s selling like madness.

Doing a deep-drive through the internet, we were happily surprised to know that the Kelly handbags are animated by the idea of a saddle holder. Several times the amendments were made and the design was modified, to reach at this new, fresh and shiny Kelly during 1930s. Before that it was brought into picture by the Monegasque princess and American Actress, Grace Kelly who used this bag to conceal her pregnancy from the nosy paparazzi, since then this bag was officially named after her.

The Hermes Kelly Bag prototype was also known as Haut à courroies, during 1892, all because of its high handle. It was basically large sized and it was used for holding a saddle, and now it’s more of a statement symbol Especially designed for Hermes wife Julie, by him and Ettore Bugatti, it was a minimalistic handbag which would fit into a car door and allow the person to carry their saddle. In 1930s, this bag was designed and re-designed by Robert Dumas and finally made into a huge travel bag, called by the name Sac à dépêches. Far cry from the flat and simple designs of that time, it evolved to be just opposite of these.

For real, if you want to add the touch of classics to your wardrobe then without a doubt, this is Hermes top-notch quality handbag that’s prevalent since ages. If a bag priced $3500 in 1990s, is of around $12000 now, who can miss the bottom-line that it’s popular to the peak. With a single tubular handle secured by palladium hardware, a wide and long shoulder strap, hanging clochette keys and a so-Kelly lock, they look cool and they are everywhere.

You must have learnt about the trapezium in earlier geometry classes? If you have, than you’ll instantly recognize the silhouette of your Darling Kelly. It’s sleek at the top and wider at the bottom, making it a trapezium box. The flap is enclosed by the leather straps from both the sides, in between there’s a padlock. You just have to turn and click to open and close the horizontal key-hole lock, and it’s so much easier than you ever thought! Moreover the signature lock, and the winsome hanging clochette with keys, is just like a cherry on top!

When it comes to practicality, it has both, the structured top handle as well as your shoulder strap, which is your knight in shining armour. You can now be hands free as and when required, yes! The strap is detachable and adjustable too. Your trend-setting fashion choices depend on your unique style, some people prefer slouchy bags and, off course others go for rigid ones. It’s hard to think that Hermes do not provide manifold choices to its followers, likewise, in Kelly too it never fails to amaze people. There are two styles of Kelly bags; one is souple that is softer and less structured version and the other is rigide, which is a structured and more formal look.

Kelly is the by-product of the brilliant brain of Hermes Brand, and it’s interior is always a win to us. You will find every other pocket that you ever thought possible in your ideal handbag. There’s one large zipper compartment to secure your vital necessities and two slot pockets that are quite large to slip in mobile and other grab-and-go stuff.

To get a Kelly over Birkin is really something to pat yourself on the back! The Hermes Kelly has a single handle that is wider than the Birkins, and also you won’t find a shoulder strap in Kelly. So, you are damn lucky if you are a Kelly girl, everything will just work on your wish list.
