  The most expensive bag in the world auctioned at an insane price

Christie's auctions the most expensive handbag in the world through its sale Handbags Online : Paris Edit started on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at noon.

Sac Hermès Kelly 25 Himalaya

Sold 437,330 dollars (i.e. €365,545 ) in Hong Kong in November 2020, the Kelly 25 Himalaya had broken all records with a selling price never before reached for a handbag. Why has this it bag upped the ante so much? Already, because it is a Hermès model handbag Kelly , one of the brand's most coveted. This iconic accessory, created in 1930, was worn by the actress (and Princess of Monaco) Grace Kelly in 1956 during an official release to hide his baby bump and was later renamed after him. This Kelly 25 Himalaya therefore measures 25 centimeters and has been made from extremely precious materials: crocodylus niloticus , a rare species of reptile living on the banks of the Nile, and palladium , a slightly matte silver metal for jewelry. Ultimate specificity of this handbag: it is a Kelly Sellier, with visible contrasting seams, less common than the reversed Kelly, made upside down with hidden seams, then returned, as its name suggests, by artisans when completed. The bidding, which will end on November 17, starts at 120,000 euros for this handbag and could reach stratospheric levels at the end of these two weeks.
