Hermès Kelly 32 Sellier Rouge Vif Ardennes Gold Hardware
The Hermès Kelly bag is a timeless classic that has represented the pinnacle of elegance in handbags for decades. Ever since Grace Kelly was photographed using the style over half a century ago, it has remained sold out in Hermès boutiques and rarely available only through close customer relationships. This example is a perfect 32cm size, large enough for anything you might need but still sophisticated and ladylike through its Ardennes leather in vibrant Rouge Vif red (a color Hermès has been producing for decades) and architectural Sellier construction. This bag is topped with rich Gold hardware and has been kept in immaculate condition. It is surely a piece that will remain the height of style for generations to come.
Why we love Ardenne - Vachette Grainee des Ardennes is a processed pressed leather crafted from a Malf Calf raised in the Ardenne region (Northern France to Southern Belgium). Ardennes leather is very sturdy and holds its shape surprisingly well, complete with thick pressed grains and a slight sheen. Vache Ardennes is quite thick and structured (it does not slouch or flop) and is water and scratch resistant. It does not have a "soft" feeling like Clemence and the grains are slightly raised. Many Hermès collectors consider this leather to be a "work horse" and can stand the test of time, but the dye is prone to fading over time. This leather is very hard to find and is no longer in production. Vache Liegee replaced Ardennes leather.
