Hermès Kelly Pochette Tangerine Nilo Lizard with Ruthenium Hardware
Having made its grand debut on Jean-Paul Gaultier's inaugural runway show for Hermès a near two decades ago, the Kelly Pochette has resurged to firmly establish its place within the robust secondary market. This newfound admiration aligns it with its iconic forerunners, the Kelly and the Birkin, thereby positioning the Pochette as a desired collector's item. The showcased early edition, resplendent in the arresting Tangerine Lizard colorway, is adorned with the desirable yet no longer in production gunmetal Ruthenium hardware, setting it apart as an exclusive novelty. The impeccable condition of this piece speaks not only to its exceptional quality but also to the meticulous stewardship it has received over the years. In being a standalone statement piece as well as the perfect petite addition to a larger collection, this Kelly Pochette represents the enduring elegance for which Hermès is internationally renowned. For the astute collector, this vibrant and refined clutch is an essential acquisition to their curation.
