We tell you about the accessory of choice for a bone fide princess

Designed by Robert Dumus, the Hermès Kelly bag has been around since the 1930s.

The bag’s aesthetic was very different to the decorative styles that were in fashion at the time.

It took its moniker from Grace Kelly after the Princess of Monaco reportedly ordered six of the bags in different colours in 1956.  Photographs of the Princess with her various bags and other celebrity fans soon made the design an icon.
