The Kelly Pochette was Jean-Paul Gaultier's clutch interpretation of the classic Kelly bag. Introduced on the fall runway of his first collection for the House in 2004, the Kelly Pochette was an instant hit. When Hermes came out with Cactus, it was hailed as the ‘matte’ equivalent of their much-loved shiny Vert Emerald; rich, deep and multifaceted, saturated and bright all at once. It took years for the development of a shiny cactus to be perfected to Hermes’ high standards, but success has been found. This Kelly Pochette is rendered in just that color, intensely green with more of a bright grassy tint than Emerald, tilting toward Jade without becoming translucent. Paired with warm gold hardware, this store-fresh clutch is a stunning example of how Hermes can improve even on what seems perfect.
