Hermes Kelly Swift Leather Natural With Gold Hardware.
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.
