The Hermès sac à dépêches which was based on older bags designed to hold saddles was introduced in the 1930’s but it wasn’t until 1956 when Grace Kelly used the bag to shield her pregnancy from the paparazzi that it became forever known as the Kelly Bag. I have a vintage oxblood Kelly Bag that I’ve debated selling but after seeing all these chic women carrying their Kellys, I will definitely be keeping mine. It’s become a classic that’s not as played out as the Birkin. Mira Duma loves the style so much that she seems to own it in every color, material, and size. I’m sure Grace would be pleased.
