Hermes 2007 Black Togo Kelly II 32 Retourne PHW Bag

The history of the Hermes Kelly bag dates back to 1930. A century after the house of Hermès opened the doors of its saddle-making workshops, Robert Dumas created a small bag with straps for ladies. Several years later the Retourne technique was developed - sewing the bag backwards and turning it inside out, like a glove. But it wasn't until 1956 when Grace Kelly famously hid her baby bump behind her Hermès bag that it was officially crowned the 'Kelly'. Since then the Hermes Kelly bag has been curated by collectors the world over and remains one of the most coveted handbags in fashion history.

The craftsmanship that goes into the Hermes Kelly bag is extraordinary. Namely, thirty-six leather pieces assembled by a single devoted craftsman. Six-hundred-and-eighty hand stitches, sixteen small studs, a padlock, a swivel clasp and a clochette all assembled in 25 hours. Each bag is a work of art. In the timeless combination of black Togo leather with palladium hardware.
