About the Kelly: First designed in 1932, the Kelly was introduced as a travel bag that was referred to as the sac à dépêches and later renamed the Kelly after actress Grace Kelly was photographed numerous times with the bag. The impeccable craftsmanship, classic silhouette, scarcity, and unique history make the Kelly a must-have for any handbag collector.
The two styles of Kelly are the Sellier (or Rigide) and Retourne (or Souple), with the Sellier having a more structured, rigid shape with distinct corners and visible exterior stitching, while the Retourne having a more relaxed, softer shape that has rounded edges as though the bag was turned inside out. It can take a single Hermès craftsman up to 18 hours to construct each Kelly.
