The Kelly bag in one of her most famous roles. A mysterious woman and her two opponents are after the reward for catching the bag. Who will have the upper hand?

A true classic of Hermès cinema, the Kelly bag here takes on one of its greatest roles. In a Toile de Camp Déchaînée version, it features a unique play on equestrian accents, inspired by one of the great icons of the early 20th century: the Haut à courroies bag, designed to hold a saddle. Its name, originating in its love affair with superstar Grace Kelly in 1956, has made it a legend. Navigating eras and styles, this most celebrated trapezoid shape reveals a motif straight out of Émile Hermès’ imagination, where links are attached and detached as scenarios unfold.
