The story behind the 'Kelly'. Created in the 1930s, the Kelly bag was named in 1956 when Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco unveiled it to the world. Its shape and iconic details have since been adapted and redesigned to create small leather goods. Straps, claps, padlocks, leather bells and keys enhance wallets, coin purses or pouches that can be worn in many different ways.
Mysore Goatskin "As its name – borrowed from a southern Indian town – suggests, the raw hide comes from India. It is recognizable by its unique grain, obtained through boarding. This consists of rolling the leather against itself, grain against grain, to guide the grain. This can be done in a single direction to obtain fine lines or in several different directions.
First appeared in the collections: 1990s Appearance: Irregular but harmonious grain; slight shine that reveals all the natural features of goatskin Feel: Fairly dry; softens with time Hand: Supple Change over time: Becomes more supple and satiny" Hermés.com
A superbly robust leather, its been used but there is almost no visible sign to the hide, the edging or the form.
Protective film also in place on all the lockplates, if you aren't inspecting very closely you'd be forgiven for thinking its nearly new.
Immaculate interior, all stitching firm and spaces for everything with 12 card slots, two slips, two gussted sections and a zipped coin purse. Supremely practical as well as stunning.
However, when reviewing with an eye to find any sign of use you can see the finish loss* to the palladium plating on the turnlocks end sides revealing the gold shade below. Shown with the zoom this is much less visible to the naked eye, but has, of course, been reflected in the price.
