The “Kelly bag,” created by Hermès, was redesigned several times before being popularized by American actress and Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly. Named after her, the bag soon became a high-fashion status symbol. A Hermès rouge de coeur mini Kelly picnic bag is among the leading lots of the upcoming Handbags & Accessories Online auction, presented by Sotheby’s. Made of osier wicker and swift leather, the piece is designed with palladium hardware, tonal stitching, and front toggle closure. Another highlighted lot from Hermès is a white Himalaya Birkin bag made with Niloticus crocodile skin. The interior is lined with Gris Perle chevre, with one zippered pocket and two open pockets.
The collection also includes a Hermès cashmere and silk shawl, designed by Ireland-born architect Nigel Peake. The composition of patchwork reveals the figure of a horse against a background of chevron, striped, and checkerboard patterns.
