Hermès Kelly Cut Blue Paon Swift leather Gold Hardware - 2018, C
The Kelly Longue and the Kelly Cut are shrunken down, clutch style versions of the Kelly bag. While the two styles are very similar, there are very significant and noticeable differences between the two. The Kelly Longue has a distinct trapezoidal shape much like the structure of the original Kelly bag. Compared to the Kelly Cut, the Kelly Longue is a little wider and can potentially hold more than a traditional, flat clutch. In comparison, the Kelly Cut is a sharp rectangular shape and a little longer the Kelly Longue, but shorter height wise. Both bags feature top handles. The Kelly Longue was discontinued around 2008, and the Kelly Cut was introduced as a new version of the style. While Hermès is known for their incredible colors, their selection of blues alone spans over forty shades - Blue Paon evokes teal. Kept in Excellent condition by a seasoned collector.
