Hermès Kelly 20 Mini II Sellier Black Alligator with Gold Hardware - 2021, Z
The initial release of the Mini Kelly II was met with sensational demand that has not waned in the years since. Hermès has kept production of these coveted 20cm Sellier Kelly's extremely limited, releasing small batches in a range of colors that seem to change each season. This Store Fresh example is rendered in shiny black Alligator. It's enriched by the lush gold hardware, making this a very luxurious little bag.
Sellier – “boxy, structured, rigid”: The Kelly Sellier has visible topstitching along the side seams and no exterior piping like the Retourne. The corners and edges are “sharper” contributing to a more boxy look. Compared the retourne, the craftsmanship of the Sellier is a little more difficult and requires more steps. The seams are topstitched together and bees wax is applied to the edges, which protects the bag from damage. Due to this method of construction, the Sellier appears larger than a retourne in the same size. Out of the two styles, the Sellier is more limited.
