Hermes Kelly Doll Bag & Saks Friends & Family

For a grand opening in Taipei, Hermes offered these little Kelly Doll (initially produced in 2000) to eager Hermes fans with about $3100 (after conversion) burning in their pockets. I can't imagine any respectable grown adult using this but I don't think I will buy this for Savvy Niece as well. She doesn't need a Kelly bag at age 6. She can have one after Auntie Savvy gets hers.....It is a fun twist to the classic Hermes Kelly if you have an extra $3000 to buy yourself a chuckle or two. This Doll bag has eye, nose, mouth, hands and feet. It is very cute and darling but for what purpose? Of course, I am sure some grown-up gals will be fighting over this as a collectible or for resale. What do you think?

  1. Not for me... I'd rather buy a real bag. This is just too impractical.

  2. I think it's a little tasteless. Big name designers have the advantage of creating strange collections and pricing them at ridiculous prices but people will still buy into it because of the brand name. $3000 is a big much for a kitty bag, I think. Nonetheless, good post and thanks for sharing!

  3. Okay, this is just not practical. I don't have a daughter but I'd rather invest $3000 towards her college fund than a bag. However, aside from the price, the bags are cute for little ones. Fun colors. :-)

  4. Seems like a tasteless plot just to make some extra $$$ off of hysterical fans/collectors. I could see how this collection will sell out instantly and how you will never, ever see anyone carry the bags in the street.

  12. Um, even if I were a millionaire, I could never imagine myself putting down three thousand bucks for a purse that has a face on it, Hermes or not. Lol. Yeah, little Suri and Shiloh will probably have one of these...and then get bored with it after a month. :S

  20. How funny! No, not something I'd crave to carry, but they remind me of the American Express commercials featuring "happy" or "sad" objects.
