Hermès Kelly 25 Sellier Gris Perle Box & Vibrato Leather Palladium Hardware - 2001, E Square
Vibrato is a very unique vintage material that
Hermès discontinued over ten years ago. The graphic multi-colored stripes of suede are created by stacking layers and layers of leather, and slicing the block into thin sheets revealing the pattern. This incredible technique was used at
Hermès for many types of bags. Most Vibrato is colorful, though this 25cm Sellier Kelly is an unusual piece, done in all shades of gray black and white, framed with Gris Perle box leather and palladium hardware; a touch of gray in a rainbow collection. The size of this Kelly makes it doubly special, small bags were not popular twenty years ago, and 25cm Kellys from this period were produced in very small numbers.
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.
