The release of the Mini Kelly II was met with sensational demand that has not waned in the years since. Hermes has kept production of these coveted 20cm Sellier Kellys tightly limited, releasing small batches in a range of colors that seem to change each season. This store-fresh example is rendered in Magnolia Epsom leather. It's enriched by the sparkling palladium hardware, making this a very luxurious looking 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.

Where used in this sale 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 coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
