As trends come and go, fashion changes, but icons last forever. Iconic brands that have held their prestigious names are Chanel, Louis Vuitton and of course,  Hermes. In 1956, two of these icons came together and created something even more iconic, something that has only grown in popularity while still remaining rare and ominous - the Hermes Kelly bag. Grace Kelly was a huge fan of Hermes (she even wore a Hermes scarf as a sling when she broke her arm). However, after a photo of her carrying an Hermes bag to shield her baby bump from the paparazzi was splashed in magazines (including Life magazine) the bag was forever known as the Kelly bag.

Nowadays getting your hands on a Kelly bag can be as difficult as getting your hands on a Birkin ( Hermes' other most iconic handbag)! They are rarely available to buy. Even getting on the waiting list is a struggle, with customers ranked on previous purchases and reputation with the company. Therefore, there is no guarantee that you will actually be able to get on the waiting list in the first place. But right now as this blog goes live, we have the most gorgeous of Kelly bags in stock & its chocolate brown😍

Kelly bags can take between 18 - 25 hours to make with exceptional hand stitching details shown in the craftmanship of the Kelly. One of the wonderful features on a Kelly bag is the detachable shoulder strap. Remember, just because your Kelly comes with a matching strap, it doesn’t mean you are stuck with it! They have been known to sell for over €70,000. Pricey but a good investment if you want a classic, timeless and iconic piece for your wardrobe!
