The Hong Kong auction house Christie’s just sold a model Kelly Himalaya from home Hermes for the sum of 437,330 dollars (365,821 euros). A new record for the luxury house.
Last October, it is a model from the collection Birkin which had set a record by being sold for 244,700 euros. An amount now beaten. The Kelly Himalaya is an extremely rare model in white and beige crocodile skin. Only one or two models are created each year by Hermès, making it one of the most popular bags in the world according to the house of Christie’s.
The model Kelly was renamed as a tribute to the princess Grace Kelly. Originally called the “Dispatch Bag”, the brothers Dumas-Hermès, managers of the house, decide to rename it Kelly after a cult snapshot of the Princess of Monaco using her handbag to cover up her pregnancy. The craze for this model is immediate and it will be made in the most luxurious materials such as lamb, ostrich or even crocodile with the model Himalaya.
Unique know-how at a cost. More than 20 hours of manufacturing and three to four years of waiting to obtain a Kelly new. Luxury handbags are becoming an increasingly sought after investment year after year by those who can afford them. According to the site The luxury journal, the Birkin and the Kelly represent up to a third of the volume sales of the luxury house Hermès.
