Hermès Kelly 28 Retourne Blue Encre Togo Palladium Hardware
Bleu Encre, Hermès' latest addition to their stable of blue, translates in English to Blue Ink, and a name could not be closer to the reality of this near-navy. But Navy it is not, as in person the strong undertones of some sharpie-esque purple flash out as the light moves over the leather. Its not Indigo, its not Electric, its not Sapphire, its inky and unique. Bleu Encre is, we dare say, incroyable.
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 colored finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms refer to the tone or color of the hardware and not the actual material used. If hardware is composed of precious solid metals this will be referenced in the description.
