Dubai, United Arab Emirates – The Luxury Flavor, a luxury and curated marketplace for pre-owned designer accessories and branded bags in Dubai, is offering the Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya with Palladium Hardware on its website.

There is one listing for the bag. It’s in never-been-used condition and available for pre-order. Priced at AED 780,000 ($212,370), it is a steal, considering the Himalaya is one of the most in-demand variants of the Kelly bag. In fact, an Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya PHW has been sold for over $373,000 in Paris.

The Hermès Kelly

The Hermès Kelly is one of the fashion house’s oldest lines. It’s older than the more popular Hermès Birkin.

The bag was created in 1935 by Émile Hermès’ son-in-law, Robert Dumas, and was initially called Sac à Dépêche or messenger bag. It is a trapezoid-shaped leather bag with triangular gussets and four studded feet at the bottom, one for each corner. It has a cut-out flap, a single handle and a detachable strap for easy wearing.

The bag shot to fame when Her Serene Highness Grace Kelly, the Hollywood sweetheart turned Princess of Monaco, was photographed holding an Hermès Sac à Dépêche against her stomach, presumably to shield her slight baby bump from prying eyes. It was then that Hermès changed the bag name to Kelly.

The Kelly is available in Retourne and Sellier stitching. The Sellier style involves putting the two pieces of leather together and applying an exposed top stitch, resulting in clean, sharp edges and a very structured design.

In Retourne, the pieces are top-stitched but sewn inside-out. They are subsequently reversed so the correct surface faces out. This style of stitching gives a Retourne bag a much softer silhouette than a Sellier.

The Kelly is available in several sizes, including 15, 20, 25, 28, 35, 40, and 50. The hardware is typically gold (could be gold, white gold, brushed gold, rose gold, etc.) or palladium. They can be studded with diamonds and other gemstones, and the leather can be Calfbox, Togo, Clemence, Evercolor, Epsom, and Fjord leather. They can also come in alligator and crocodile.

The Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya PHW

The Hermès Kelly 25 on The Luxury Flavor comes in one of the most popular sizes for a Kelly (25 cm). It is crafted from one of the most valuable materials Hermès uses: Crocodylus niloticus (i.e., Nile crocodile) leather.

The Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya PHW has a light gradient color that seemingly deflects and reflects light, so it has a distinctly luminescent quality that evokes an image of the Himalayas. The shiny, silvery-white palladium hardware perfectly complements the tone and glow of the Himalaya leather.

Notable Designer Bags for Sale at The Luxury Flavor

The Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya PHW is not the only impressive luxury bag on The Luxury Flavor website. The following are a few of the most notable handbags in The Luxury Flavor collection.

  • Hermès Birkin 20 Sous la Neige Faubourg PHW

The Birkin is one of Hermès’ most popular bag designs. It came about in 1984 when the company’s then-executive chairman, Jean-Louis Dumas, sat next to British actress Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. An accidental bag spill on Birkin’s part led to a discussion of bags and what the actress wanted (and needed) in one. Consequently, Dumas sketched a rectangular leather bag with ample space, suitable for young mothers and other women who need to carry a lot of things in their bags – and that was how the quintessential Hermès handbag was born.

The Hermès Birkin is a hold-all or tote bag, more rectangular than trapezoidal, with two handles that one can hold with their hands or carry over their arm. It comes in different types of leather, hardware, and sizes. It is also available in many colors and variants, including the Hermès Faubourg Birkin.

The Hermès Faubourg Birkin is a limited-edition handbag. It is designed to evoke the image of the Hermès flagship boutique on 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré through visual elements like shop windows and awnings. It comes in the following variations:

  • Day
  • Night
  • Minuit (Midnight)
  • Neige (Snow)

At The Luxury Flavor, the Hermès Birkin 20 Neige Faubourg PHW is available for pre-order for AED 850,000 ($231,424). Bag condition: never used.

  • Hermès Birkin 25 Picnic Sellier Swift PHW

The Hermès Picnic Sellier bag is named such because it is made of Osier wicker and is thus reminiscent of a wicker picnic basket. The wicker body is skillfully combined with Swift leather.

The Hermès Swift leather, named after Jonathan Swift of “Gulliver’s Travels” fame, is a supple and soft leather with fine natural grain. The leather absorbs colors well, making it an excellent choice for making colored leather handbags.

The Hermès Birkin 25 Picnic Sellier Swift PHW on The Luxury Flavor comes in nata color with palladium hardware. It is available in stock and selling for AED 320,000 ($87,124). Bag condition: never used.

  • Hermès Kelly 25 Braise Croco GHW

The Hermès Kelly 25 Braise Croco GHW is made with crocodile leather. You can see the individual crocodile skin scales gradually getting smaller as you go from the middle to the sides. Braise is the French word for ember. The Hermès Kelly 25 Braise Croco, therefore, is a gleaming red color that beautifully sets off the bag’s gold hardware.

Hermès Kelly 25 Braise Croco GHW is available for pre-order at AED 299,999 ($81,679). Bag condition: never used.

  • Hermès Kelly Mini Croco Black GHW

The Hermès 20-cm Kelly is also known as the Hermès Mini Kelly. The croco black Mini Kelly on The Luxury Flavor website has the crocodile leather’s distinctive scale patterns. The black color and its convenient optional strap make it an excellent go-anywhere and any-occasion bag. The gold hardware enhances the appearance of the black leather.

Hermès Kelly Mini Croco Black GHW is available for pre-order, selling for AED 299,000 ($81,407). Bag condition: never used.
