Hermès Kelly Doll Quelle Idole Picto Blue Royale, Nata, Gold Epsom with Palladium Hardware
Introducing the Hermès Kellydole Picto Bag, which is part of the Hermès Spring/Summer 2022 collection and gives a modernized twist to the whimsical nature of the personified bag. However, this version is quite different, offering an optional shoulder strap and a little backpack that attaches to the back of the doll (ok, bag, but you know what I mean). The facial features of this version are a spin on the original, offering a computerized pixelated take. I actually think I prefer this bag to the original; it keeps the lines a bit more sleek but still gives every bit of playfulness that I adore from the first version of this bag. This new Doll was inspired by the Hermès Jingle Games at Ginza Japan in 2018. When they used the crystal bricks of the Hermès Maison in Ginza to create this video-game-like display using pixel art. The best part, room for your phone!
The Hermès ‘Quelle Idole,’ more popularly known as Kelly Doll, was designed and produced in 2000 by Jean-Louis Dumas himself. This limited edition style has since been discontinued, but it pops back up from time to time for boutique openings, brand celebrations, and very rarely on the resale market. Hermès’ brand ethos inserts whimsical details into their product in many ways. From scarf prints that convey horses as superheroes or as actors receiving awards, to the entire Petit H line which repurposes cast-off materials into fantastical objects like decorative mobiles or exquisitely crafted life-size horse figurines—the brand’s playful elements are always apparent if you look closely.
