One of our favorites from Hermès... The 28cm Kelly Etain grey with Gold Hardware. Introduced in the 2011 Autumn Winter collection, “Etain” refers to tin in French. This matte grey is easy to match to any scene and style. 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). Plastic on hardware, no plastic on feet.
Material: Togo Leather
28cm: 28x22x10cm 11"x8.5"x4"
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. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
