Hermès Mini Kelly 20 Sellier Shoulder White Evercolor Gold Hardware - 1986
Offered exclusively at the JaneFinds + Christie's Handbags Online: Summer in the City Auction July 14 - 28
Hermès connoisseurs will be familiar with the vintage 20cm Kelly that was recently re-designed as the Mini Kelly 20 II, but some may never have seen this model: a highly useful version, designed with a soft shoulder strap, the perfect length to wear over the shoulder, and just short enough to still look right in the hand. These rare vintage Mini Kelly Shoulder models are loved for their ease of use and effortless styling, and this example is rendered in white Evercolor leather with gold hardware. Maintained in virtually unused, perfect condition since it was crafted 34 years ago in 1986, this piece is an incredible find, a rarely seen gem in unimaginable condition.
