Vintage Hermès Kelly 32 Digital Hima Custom Painted Clemence with Palladium Hardware - 2004, H Square
Himalayans occupy a unique position atop the handbag market. Instantly recognizable, yet each one unique; the delicate ombre evokes images of the namesake mountain range. This Kelly 32 views the Hima through the lens of a screen, as most Himas are seen. Pixelated and broken down into a grid of colored squares, these singular bits of information come together to form an iconic image. Painstakingly hand-painted, each of the 5000 pixels is unique, up close the pattern fades away leaving only paint, the grid barely visible. An impressionist work of digital art made real. The crisp white interior and Palladium hardware finish this unique artwork beautifully.
