Monsieur leather is a recent addition to Hermes, and is similar to Epsom with a smaller grain. To introduce this new material, Hermes released a very limited number of ‘Un Point Sur Deux’ Kelly bags featuring two alternating colors of stitching. This store-fresh example is done in black Monsieur leather with black and white stitching. Hermes has used this technique once before in the early 2000’s with a line of strangely shaped bags such as the Abal, featuring engraved Tuareg hardware. The effect on a 28cm Kelly is spectacular making this one of the most sophisticated and unusual Kellys of the past decade.

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. If the bag incorporates solid metal hardware this will be referenced in the lot description.
