New Hermes Shoulder Kelly

Hello ladies, there is a new kid in Hermes town. She is the new Kelly Shoulder bag and I can't wait to set up a play date with her.It's wider and shorter than a traditional Kelly. The handle is longer so a gal can sling it on her shoulder. SG can't wait to see this in person although the price will scare me a bit. This new Kelly bag will cost about $10,000 (ouch!) as a traditional Kelly is about $7000+ now. Speaking of Kelly, I saw one over the weekend for $8600 (because it's special calf leather), I had to gingerly put the bag down and walk away. What do you think of this new Kelly shoulder bag? SG is not too crazy about fringes on the Kelly bag (pic right). This is taking wild wild west too far!
On a sad note, this Hermes JPG Birkin as seen on Victoria Beckham will be replaced with a newer version which will have 2 pockets inside and closure like the traditional Birkin. Although I love my JPG, I am always fishing for things which is quite distracting and unsavvy at times. Again, I can't wait to see the new JPG Birkin in person and become scared by the price. So which bag do you prefer, Kelly or Birkin and new or classic version?

  5. Birkins and Kellys are all handmade in France by a master craftsman/woman. A typicl Kelly takes about 14 hours to make or so I am told.

  12. Yes, SG will take any version as well. I am interested in seeing this. It's a bit younger than the classic kelly.

  13. The Shoulder Kelly looks pretty chic!! I'm typically a Kelly 28cm person but this one definitely has my attention. Savvy Mode SG, do you know what is the length and handle drop of the Shoulder Kelly in comparison with the old Shoulder Birkin? It's a bit hard to gauge the proportion based on the photos of the models. Thanks.

  14. Dear Anonymous: I actually haven't talked to my SA about it but guessing from the picture and my JPG Birkin, I am going to say handle drop will be very similar to the JPG Birkin which has about a 7 inch handle drop. I am also guessing base on the pic. classic Kelly is now 28 or 32 cm. so the new shoulder version should be about 35/36 cm.

  15. Love the birkin!!!!! It looks so cool when left opened or kept closed. The shoulder birkin is a wonderful invention. It has drawbacks just like all things - it's heavy and a bit awkward, since it's so darn wide. Nevertheless, I still want one. Love my birkin 30 but it gets a bit cumbersome at times.

  16. The JPG shoulder Birkin is very heavy. It's a workout carrying that thing but it's great. I am looking forward to the shoulder Kelly. Also there is going to be a new style shoulder Birkin. The current JPG Birkin will be replaced soon.
