It is the most famous handbag of all time. One of the few to be given a name. Since it is an eternal symbol of fashion, to own a Kelly bag means to gain a first-hand experience of how a fashion object can become a legend. This bag takes its name from the Monegasque Princess Grace Kelly who, in 1956, hid her pregnancy with this iconic bag, make it what is now: a must-have for everyone who wants to copy the Princess’ style. From that year on, every woman  has dreamed to own a Kelly bag; it is one of the most desirable handbags and all the celebrities show it whenever they can.  Designed by Émile-Maurice Hermès, the famous manufacturing company founder’s grandson, the Kelly bag gained a great success because of its simplicity and elegance. It is a comfortable trapezium, closed with straps, with a rigid bottom, all of this completed by a wonderful detail: it is closed with a padlock.
