Hermès, pure French heritage.
The House of Hermès came into existence long before most other luxury French labels. Indeed, the brand was founded back in the year 1837. The House has matured for decades and yet remains just as youthful as ever. The designs have also moved with the times. Initially devoted to saddle making and the world of horse-riding, over time the brand diversified into clothing, luxury accessories and timeless bags. One shining example is the label's legendary Kelly design.
A look back over the extraordinary story of the Kelly bag.
The brand Hermès is renowned for launching several designs which have become iconic bags. The Kelly bag is a fully paid-up member of that select club. It reflects the excellence and quality expertly fostered by the French fashion house. The different pieces which make up the design are assembled by hand with unparalleled attention to detail and precision. The emblematic bag was made by the brand for the first time at the end of the 19th century before being revisited in 1935 in a more compact format, so it has adapted to suit the needs of women everywhere. It acquired its definitive name when Princess Grace Kelly became its muse. Its success can be attributed to its clean-cut lines and the metal padlock which gives it a truly unique character. Just like the Birkin design, it also exists in different formats.
