Kelly is another famous line of Hermes bags named after the actress Grace Kelly in 1956. The Kelly Hermes bags are more formal and appropriate for an evening out where as the Birkin Hermes bags are more sporty and casual. Both are beautifully made and have three layers of leather in the bottom.
Authentic Birkin or Kelly Hermes bags have an engraved lock and key set, embossed markings on the inside and never ever do they sport a paper hangtag. The lock will say "Hermes" on the bottom and the keys will be numbered to match the number of the lock and some sets with vintage bags also say Hermes on the reverse side. All in all having any line of Hermes bags in your closet is an out and out sign of your being a sophisticated, smart and indulgent fashion enthusiast.
