A true rarity. This incredibly sought after Kelly 'Au Pas' is a special edition piece crafted in a two tone colour-way of Vert Vertigo and Blue Zanzibar. These two tones compliment each other brilliantly to create a palette of oceanic blues which is then detailed with black leather trimmings and Palladium hardware. This material makes this bag soft in structure yet incredibly durable and scratch resistant. The interior is fully securable with a lockable flap for added security making this piece wonderful for travel or every day. The top handle and removable strap make this piece easy to carry with any outfit and to any occasion. A true collectable for any Hermes lover.
HISTORY OF THE KELLY
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. This particular Hermes bag is quite unique. In 2018 Hermès released three Special Edition Kelly ‘A Cheval’ bags. Translated from French, “Cheval” means horse - a reference to the Maison’s heritage in the carriage trade (they started out making harnesses and bridle for carriages hence the Duc carriage with a horse logo that remains the Hermes trademark to this day). This design was one of the three special editions released by Hermes as part of this collection. The Kelly Au Galop, the Kelly Au Pas, and the Kelly Au Trot. The designs differ by way of the top handle. The top handle is crafted in a mix of leathers, taking 4 times longer to make than the regular Hermes Kelly handle.
