An Exceptional Hermès Kelly Cut SO-BLACK Calf Box Leather with Feathers Black PVD Hardware
Hermès devotees worldwide are known to covet the black Birkins and Kellys, which are considered the epitome of elegance and timelessness. However, the SO-BLACK bags take it to the next level by going beyond the conventional boundaries of contrasting colors, embracing a sleek minimalism with matching black hardware. In fact, these bags are so coveted that Hermès refers to them as "made for monochromatic blackaholics."
Back in 2010, the former creative director of Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier, designed the So Black collection, leaving his indelible mark on the fashion house just before his departure. Nowadays, the So Black has become a rare collectors' item, with nobody quite certain of how many Hermès actually produced. Unfortunately, it seems that Hermès won't be producing any more of these highly sought-after bags.
It's worth noting that some So Black bags have been made even more unique and special with the addition of natural feathers. These luxurious and exclusive versions are highly sought after by fashion enthusiasts who are looking for something truly one-of-a-kind. With the feathers adding an extra touch of extravagance to an already sophisticated bag, it's no surprise that these feathered So Blacks have become some of the most coveted items in the fashion world.
