Presenting here is a 1990-vintage Kelly 28 in black Box calf leather with gold hardware, an heirloom bag that ages like wine and tells the tradition of Hermes’ craftsmanship.
Hermès connoisseurs would agree that Box calf is the most classic and iconic leather to represent the Kelly bag (the ONE that Grace Kelly carried was precisely in Box!). And, the combination of black with gold hardware is timeless.
Box leather – One of the earliest leathers Hermès ever used – the history goes all the way back to 1920s, the “Box” tanning technique originated in England. This leather has a polished ultra-smooth appearance, its structure is firm and holds its shape well.
Age like wine, this vintage Box leather has gained a silky patina of “buttery” shine after 3 decades, a unique character of its own. Hermes does provide outstanding spa service for this classic leather, ensuring it will last for a lifetime.
Size 28 is the all-rounder, timeless for any season and any occasion. This small-medium bag remains flowingly elegant within the 30cm range, while still functional to hold up your essentials.
The Kelly bag can be casually slung on the shoulder with strap, or gracefully carried in hand by the top handle.
