The kelly bag, the most historical leather handbag that Hermès has ever created.
Indeed, at the time in 1923, called the « Haut à courroies » and designed specially for riders in order to be able to carry their horse riding equipment.
The handbag was then redesigned in 1935 by Robert Dumas- Hermès. He changed the purse by making it smaller and more feminin.
However, you must be thinking why is it called the Kelly bag ? It is thanks to Princess Grace Kelly who will popularize it by wearing the bag to shield her pregnancy in front of the paparazzis. She was a fashion icon and that is how the name of the handbag became « Kelly ».
