It has been over a decade since Hermes has introduced a new Kelly clutch; handheld versions of the iconic top-handle bag have been crafted by the house in limited numbers since the turn of the century. The fall 2019 Men's runway show introduced us to the latest iteration: the 25cm Kelly Depeches Pochette. The classic Sac a Depeches briefcase had previously been produced with Kelly styling (simply known as the Kelly Depeches, available in sizes no smaller than 31cm, and had Kelly-like hardware that was different than on a classic Kelly).To go along with this exciting new clutch, Hermes is also now producing an updated Kelly Depeches briefcase with this same clipped-corner styling, and full size classic Kelly hardware, though the design of this clutch is entirely new, and very exciting. It is built with a round base, about as wide as a Kelly Pochette, but much more sturdy, and perfectly fitted for the palm of your hand. The clipped-corners soften the overall look and clearly draw from the clipped corners of the classic Kelly hardware. The matching leather wrist strap is removable, and the interior has a smart slip pocket at the front. In black Epsom leather, this couldn't be a more classic version of this new and already timeless bag.

Where used in this sale the term "hardware" refers to the metallic parts of the bag, such as the buckle hardware, base studs, lock and keys and/or strap, which are plated with a coloured finish (e.g. gold, silver, palladium). The terms "Gold Hardware", "Silver Hardware", "Palladium Hardware" etc. refer to the tone or colour of the hardware and not the actual material used.
