Hermès Orange Retourne Kelly 35cm in Taurillon Clemence Leather with Gold Hardware, 2005


This Kelly bag features a single sturdy rolled top handle, horizontal interlocking straps, turn lock closure and a signature padlock that opens with accompanying keys. The flap opens to a matching orange chevre lining with one Hermès engraved zipper pull and one slip pocket on the opposite side.


In the 1930s, Robert Dumas, son-in-law of Émile Hermès, whom he succeeded at the head of Hermès (1951-1978), created the women’s bag with straps.

He designed a trapezoid shape with two triangular gussets, a cutout flap, a handle and two side straps, and with it he brought the house into the era of boldness and modernism.

In the late 1950s, legend has it that Grace Kelly, a Hollywood star turned princess of Monaco, was photographed holding the bag over her stomach to conceal the early signs of her pregnancy.

The bag shot to international fame and was renamed the Kelly.
