Everything-limited is certainly worth chasing, like the Hermes Kelly Flag Wallet. We were told that only 12 pieces were available in each store.
The Kelly Wallet is one of Hermes’s Classic accessories and needs no introduction – the beautiful Kelly Lock in the center is what we’re all craving for. The Flag Wallet edition is in bi-color blue and black or in bi-color red and burgundy.
The purpose of this post is to give you more details about this beauty. First, it’s covered in Epsom Calfskin. The interior is the same as the original Kelly Wallet, it features 12 credit card slots, 2 pockets for bills, central zip purse for change with Kelly Lock pull-tab. This bag is great as an evening clutch or a long wallet.
Measuring 4.5’ x 7.7’ inches, priced at $3650 USD via Hermes boutique.

Hermès Crocodile Kelly Backpack ($4,000): An unusual Hermès is the backpack. With elegant croc texture, this is a far cry from the simple backpack you toted in high school.
Chanel Stingray and Black Leather Boy Bag ($3,000): Kelly and I can’t get enough of Boy bags, from the chained up to this basic black (but decidedly far from basic stingray paneling).
Hermès Lizard Constance Bag ($13,000): Red for the holidays! The lizard offers a nice dose of rich texture to the classic bag, making this a must-have whether you’ve already started your Hermes collection or are just beginning.
Hermès Birkin ($11,000): Who can resist the charm of a Birkin? This forest green version is just right for the season, although not so specific you can’t tote it every other time of the year.
Hermès Alligator, Ostrich, and Lizard Kelly ($32,500): Called the “Grand Marriage” for its masterful mix of alligator, ostrich, and lizard, this limited edition Kelly is not one
you’ll see hanging from the arms of any other Snob – and that’s just why you’ll love it!

From this week’s news, it looks like the BEAR chasing the rest of the luxury industry is hot on the heels of Hermes too…
(Read: Bear Market for Bags)
The company’s growth in its home market over the last 3 months was significantly lower than the previous two quarters, largely the result of decreased consumer activity following the horrificterrorist attack in Paris: 1% vs 8% and 10% respectively. Hermes had originally targeted 10% global growth in 2016 but with these numbers out of France, that seems almost impossible. While handbag sales in large foreign markets like China remain strong, sales of lower priced accessories and scarves were down 7% last quarter. Hermes shares dropped over 5% on the news, the largest intraday drop since December 2014. Revenue in the quarter grew at the slowest rate in six years.
What’s fascinating to me is how little control luxury brands like Hermes can exert over their success in today’s economy. In a fully globalized world, they blow in the wind just like other less prestigious brands. A decade ago, Hermes seemed immune from the vicissitudes of the global economy. Although that is no longer the case, Hermes does have one distinct advantage the others don’t: legacy. No brand is more respected or loved. How it leans on this storied history to propel growth in the upcoming years is the million dollar question…
