The speedy 25 handbag of Louis Vuitton inspired by the cinema diva Audrey Hepburn and the Hermès birkin bag inspired by singer Jane Birkin. These are some examples of secular scholarship, it bags, handbags “darlings” of the celebrities. And the Kelly bag?
The Kelly Bag is more a classic Hermès brand. She appeared in 1930 and was designed by Robert Dumas. Just happens to be called “Kelly” after an event occurred with the actress and Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly.
She used the bag to protect the stomach and hide it from the lenses of the paparazzi, in 1956. After that, this bag was Kelly by fashionistas and became one of the most iconic in the world. That success lasts for years! Certainly, the Kelly bag can be considered one of the most famous in the history of exchanges.
The Kelly bag has classic lines, Trapeze and two handles. Has 4 pins on the bottom so that it can be placed on the floor. Is available in 8 different sizes, starting at 50 cm. The mini Kelly has 15 cm. There is an incredible variety of materials and colors, the more formal style to the more urban (jeans, for example).
Each bag is produced by a craftsman, stitched individually and by hand. It can take up to 18 hours to be produced. Are used exotic materials (hides and skins) and rare. This sum of factors, including the principle of scarcity (there are waiting lists to purchase one), it is among the most expensive handbags in the world. The simplest, cheapest materials can cost around $7000.00 (about 13,000 R$). As you can see, you have to be with money left over to get one of those!
In my opinion, the model of Kelly is one of the world’s most sophisticated and formal. Like that classic “vintage” look she has. A shame it’s so expensive and so far from the reality of most people.
