Hermès Kelly 25 HSS Retourne Blue Electric & Gris Asphalte Togo Palladium Hardware - 2018, C
Special Order bags, or HSS as they’re often called (in reference to the horseshoe stamp that accompanies the Hermes brand stamp), are a category unto themselves in the Hermes world. The opportunity to special order a bag is only offered to top clients, and the implication is that yours could be an entirely unique combination. This 25cm Togo Retourne Kelly, a size and construction rarely seen as a special order, takes the vibrant and long-loved Blue Electric and cools it with a handle, sides and straps of Gris Asphalte, which blend perfectly into the Palladium hardware. In store-fresh condition, this bag is very special and unusual in more ways than one!
Retourne refers to the inside stitching of the bag’s edges – observe the piping on the edges, you can see it’s as if has been sewn and then turned it inside out. This makes the bag a bit “softer” at the edges, and more flexible (there’s no piping on sellier Kellys).
