Hermès Kelly 35 Retourne Black Clemence Palladium Hardware
A black Kelly bag, is there anything more classic? This black Kelly sits in an interesting spot in history, It’s done in Grace Kelly’s favorite size, 35cm, and still has the single-loop hardware on the handles, as all hers would have, too. But it has palladium hardware, something only introduced for Kelly's two years prior in 1996. It’s an exciting, modern dive into the future, a peek into the twenty-first century; one small step for design - one giant leap for the Kelly. I think Grace Kelly would have approved.
