Around May this year, I took a trip to Paris for my birthday where I scored an orange Hermes birkin 25cm, which I shared with you guys, and also took on my trip to Monte Carlo this summer. During my appointment with my sales associate at the Hermes store in Paris, I inquired about some mini Kellys, which she shared the prices with me.

What Makes The Hermès Mini Kelly 20cm So Special?

It first came out in 1892 and was revisited in 1935. The new version was smaller in size and boasted more feminine curves. The design met with resounding success. The epic saga of the design came to a decisive crossroads in the year 1958. Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, as she exited an airplane, used that very bag to attempt to hide her pregnant belly. It was soon renamed the Kelly and went on to become a symbol of inaccessible, highly-coveted luxury. In response to the needs and desires of women everywhere, a mini version of the Kelly design was eventually launched. It thus transformed into a more practical compact bag, which could be worn across the body.
