The most sought-after bag in the world: the Hermes Matte Niloticus Crocodile Kelly. This stunning bag is done in extremely rare Poussiere a creamy off-white. The dye process for Hermes is very difficult for light colors and subsequently these shades are very rare. Paired with gold hardware, this is a very special combination.
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).

The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
