Hermes Kelly Dupe? The Chanel Coco Handle

Categories:Other Brands

A “Kelly” by any other designer isn’t a Kelly, but may still be a great bag.

As many of you know, waiting for Kelly takes patience. The hardest part, however, may be not buying any other purse in the interim. I have learned over the years that when I want a certain item, I rarely am satisfied by a close-but-no-cigar alternative purchase. In other words, my mantra right now should be “Kelly or bust.” Okay, maybe “Kelly or Birkin or bust” – I’m a little flexible.

Fortunately, I am rarely tempted by bags not on my radar or appropriate for my lifestyle. I do not change bags daily, weekly…or even monthly. My MO is grab-and-go. For the last many months, that bag has been my GST.

I had hoped that by now a Hermes Kelly would be in my hands.   Alas, it’s not, but it does feel like time for a bag change. And something caught my eye.

It’s probably no surprise that it actually resembles a Kelly despite bearing Chanel’s name. The Coco Handle just works. I opted for gray rather than black and settled for the plain non-lizard handles (because my SA couldn’t find the lizard). I love the shape, the size, the color, even the handle and the strap. For Chanel, the price is even reasonable ($3800).

Just one thing…I haven’t used it yet.

What do you think? Will this satisfy my Kelly need for now? Will I keep the Coco Handle when I finally do get a Kelly?

I guess all of this is contingent on a much awaited arrival of the ever so elusive Kelly. For now, join me in the conversation on BopTalk to discuss my Hermes Kelly versus Chanel Coco Handle debate…

Hermes-Kelly-Long-Wallet-3

Every girl deserves a designer bag… or wallet! And if you just want to own one Hermes Wallet, just one…then you should purchase the best of the best.

So what’s la crème de la crème?

Without a doubt, the Hermes Kelly Long Wallet.

READ: Hermes Kelly Long Wallet Black, Orange and Purple

A wallet to be jealous about, it’s inspired by the iconic Kelly Tote Bag. Made from top quality leather and handled with grace by the fashion brand’s craftsman. The most perfect thing in the world is embellished in the center of this bag… the Kelly Closure with the signature ‘Hermes Paris’.

It’s a life-changing bag… and it makes you sleep deeper when you place it next to your pillow. It’s made with plenty of room to store coins, cards and cash. It’s so to-die-for that it made with a key to unlock the exterior closure. And it also features with another Hermes locker in the interior…that’s attached to the zipper.

The purpose of this post is to show you all the colors that are available. It’s mouth-dropping gorgeous, which color do you like?

And for the girls running with a broken heart, replace your ex with the Hermes Kelly Long Wallet, it can be done, it’s possible.

Perhaps a price that’s too steep, but it’s certainly one of the best wallets you can ever get. With DNA copied from the iconic bag that everyone wants, the Hermes Kelly Tote is protected with two or more layers of waiting list (sometimes the waiting list is even closed!).

It’s an accessory that will make everyone jealous, a wallet that gets instant attention when carried in an open room, I mean, anyone that knows a little bit of fashion will understand that it’s a Hermes Kelly Wallet.

Pick your favourite – either in goatskin or Epsom calf leather, if you got doubts then check our Hermes Leather Guide. The wallet can be closed using the straps, made with silver detailing.

So what can you expect from the interior? A zipped change purse, 12 credit card slots and two billfold compartments. Measuring 11.5 x 19.7 cm, for £2,130 GBP or €2.150 euro’s at Hermes boutique. (Temporary available at Hermes e-store)

Hermes So Kelly Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-So-Kelly-Hobo-Bag

Nowadays, designer brands try to retro everything possible from a specific bag that’s unusual hot. It’s almost the same like: ‘I like love flower pink pumps’ and then try to sell me shirts, skirts and bags with pink flowers printed on it. Or isn’t that the correct metaphor?

But anyways, how many times have seen the clone of the iconic Hermes Kelly Bag? Let’s start with theHermes Herbag Zip Bag, inspired by the Kelly Tote. Then we’ve the Hermes Kelly Long Wallet, finished with the Kelly Closure.

And then we’ve the Hermes So Kelly Bag. If you love hobo’s or bucket bags, then please pay a close attention. This bag can be worn on your shoulder and as you might already expect, it has enormous space to carry all your essentials. Ideal for work or on the weekends.

If you’re a motivated fashionista that follows high fashion trends, then you must already know that the So Kelly is not a new addition. It was first introduced back in 2008, to be exact, as a part of the F/W 2008 Collection. It comes with an adjustable shoulder strap and refined with the Kelly closure.

The Hermes So Kelly is made from different leathers, but the most famous version is Togo calfskin. You can literally feel the amazing grains if you touch it gently. There are two pockets – one zipped pocket on the front and one flat pocket on the back.

Available in two sizes:
Hermes So Kelly Bag in 22 cm is sized 22 x 30 x 11 (L x H x D) in cm, priced at €4,350 or £4,120 GBP.

Hermes So Kelly Bag in 26 cm is sized 26 x 35 x 13 (L x H x D) in cm, priced at €4,600.

Available at Hermes e-store.

We Finally Get to See Leslie Mann’s Press Tour Bag Choice

Categories:Other Brands

Leslie Mann Hermes Kelly Bag

The stars of the upcoming revenge comedy The Other Woman have been jet-setting all over the world these past two weeks to promote their new flick, but actress Leslie Mann has been consistently “bag-blocked” by the large, luxurious bag choices of Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton, who always seem to be leading the pack. But at long last, we can see her press tour bag of choice – the ever-classy Hermes Kelly Bag, in a lovely shade of cerulean blue. Here’s Leslie arriving solo at LAX, presumably on her way home. (I can imagine she’s pretty grateful for a little alone time at this point.)

Blue was certainly the preferred hue of handbags during this paparazzi-tastic press tour. We saw Leslie’s costar Kate Upton carry a blue Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote in Sydney, Australia, and a blue patterned Fendi 3Jours Shopping Tote in Paris. A few savvy commenters actually spotted a black Hermes Kelly in the background in one of our Sydney pics, so it’s possible the Hermes Kelly is Leslie’s choice for every occasion.

Naya Rivera Proves the Hermes Kelly Bag Can be Carried Casually

Categories:Other Brands

Naya Rivera Hermes Kelly Bag

Here’s actress Naya Rivera carrying an Hermes Kelly Bag during a recent coffee run in LA. We saw Naya pair this same Kelly with a drastically different outfit during New York Fashion Week back in February. The Kelly is generally considered a more ladylike bag, but the brand’s popularity among the young and rich has resulted in some less traditional styling, like you see here. (Hermes plus Nikes. Discuss.)

It has not been a great couple of months for Naya Rivera – first her engagement to rapper Big Sean went down in flames, and just yesterday it was announced that she won’t be re-joining the rest of the Glee cast for its sixth and final season, perhaps due in part to her behind-the-scenes feuding with co-star Lea Michelle. But as long as you have a good Hermes bag (and a few lucrative endorsement deals on the side), life can’t be all that bad, eh?
