Hermès Kelly Pochette Tangerine Nilo Lizard with Ruthenium Hardware
The Kelly Pochette has recently come to maturity on the secondary market. Eighteen years after one first walked down Jean-Paul Gaultier’s inaugural runway show for Hermès, the Pochette has reached equal levels of popularity with the Kelly and Birkin. This early example done in vibrant Tangerine Lizard sports the discontinued gunmetal Ruthenium hardware. Maintained in exceptional condition, this rare clutch is the perfect mini Kelly to add to any collection.
