Hermès Kelly In Rose Gold And Diamonds

March 4, 2012

This is reportedly the most expensive Hermès handbag ever made to date, set to retail for 1.5 million euros. One of 4 designs available, with 3 of each design to be made, it is technically not a handbag since it holds nothing more than a pair of sunglasses.

Designed by accessories designer Pierre Hardy, it took two years to produce the intricate creation which includes a Kelly (shown above), made of rose gold and crafted with a crocodile scale effect. Studded with 1160 diamonds, the owner would wear it on the wrist like a piece of jewellery, and perhaps carry nothing more than a tiny smart phone and a tube of lip gloss on the inside.

One would argue that if it is technically a handbag, the price would seem astronomical, even mad. But since it is to be regarded as a piece of fine jewellery, the price tag does not seem too exorbitant after all. Or does it?

Shoe styles and colours, yes. As for the actual fit, you'll have to check directly with Prada.
