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?
