1. Hermès Kelly
Hermès’ Kelly bag was first designed around the 1930s by Robert Dumas. With its signature trapezoid shape, cutout flap, and handle with two side-straps the Hermès Kelly shot to international fame when the bag was photographed being carried by Grace Kelly, who held it over her stomach to conceal the early signs of her pregnancy. Now, the Kelly is a cult classic—favoured by fashion icons around the world. Those looking for the best Kelly to invest in would likely opt for those made from exotic crocodile or alligator leather, which are slowly being phased out by the maison.
