Introducing Hermes Kelly Wallet
A lot of people have told me that wallets are like shoes – you really don’t need that many. I feel that a wallet is not only a great accessory but also makes me smile from ear to ear when I find a new one that I can add to my collection. Crazy….perhaps…..but it’s TRUE!
So what is it about the Hermes Kelly Wallet that makes it so great?
Two words : Hermes Kelly, are madly coveted by the Hermes devotees. And if we add ‘wallet’ as a suffix to these words than the fans are all the more blessed with the Hermes Kelly Wallet! Yesteryear has brought to us, an immortal creation that was inspired by an American actress and Monégasque princess. Grace Kelly, in order to conceal her pregnant belly from the nosy paparazzi, put forward this bag, and thus the Hermes Kelly was named after her, in the year 1956. Much after that Hermes created this Hermes Kelly Wallet enlivened by the previous version.
Being a die-hard Hermes fan, even when blindfolded, one can feel the Kelly vibes through this wallet; the iconic Kelly turnlock, the exotic leather and the compact structure. Walk in the room with this elegant piece of Hermes luxury, all eyes glued on you.
