Hermès Kelly Quelle Idole Doll Bag Rouge Gulliver Leather Palladium Hardware
This Kelly Doll, particularly in its vibrant Rouge variation, is considered a mandatory addition to any devoted Hermès collection. The bag's distinctive features include flexible arms and a leather-embedded smile, epitomizing Hermès' subtle, wry sense of humor.
Interestingly, the name 'Kelly Doll' itself is a pun, playing off "Quelle Idole," a French phrase meaning "what a doll!" This witty wordplay subtly mirrors the brand's attitude towards their creations, presenting a veneer of solemnity while secretly laced with an ironic undertone.
The bag is crafted from Gulliver Leather in an arresting Rouge color. Maintained in excellent condition, it is accentuated with palladium hardware and belongs to the esteemed 2000 Collection. The bag measures 5.5" in height, 6" in width, and has a depth of 2.5". It features a handle drop of 2", providing a compact, yet stylish carriage. Please note, any additional accessories are to be purchased separately.
The term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a colored finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms refer to the tone or color of the hardware and not the actual material used. If hardware is composed of precious solid metals this will be referenced in the description.
