Hermès Kelly 32 Retourne Orange H Swift Palladium Hardware - 2005, I Square
Orange became the house color of Hermès back during the war, when supplies were thin and the only color available to brighten up their new paper boxes (which had previously been pigskin), was orange, bright bright orange, Orange d’ Hermès! This spectacular hue has been a mainstay in the Hermès catalog for many decades. In a 32cm Swift leather Retourne Kelly, the color screams behind it’s shiny Palladium hardware. Neon, a subversion of the classic ladylike Kelly bag, entering into it’s teen years, this bag is young, and always will be.
