Hermes Kelly 28 Shoulder Bag
Hermes Kelly Shoulder Bag
In the 1930s, Robert Dumas, son-in-law of Emile Hermes, whom he succeeded at the head of Hermes (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.
