The Hermes 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 Hermes 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 sturdy Epsom leather in vibrant Rouge Vif red (a color Hermes has been producing for decades) and architectural Sellier construction. This bag is topped with sleek Palladium hardware and has been kept in immaculate condition. It is surely a piece that will remain the height of style for generations to come.

The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
