Nessun Dorma - Hermes Kelly Sellier 28
Introducing the Lyric series. Marrying musical classics with vintage classics Jay Ahr has woven the lyrics to operas, ballads and anthems. The embroidered word in perfect harmony with the Hermès it adorns.
This piece is an ode to the Italian Opera. The lyrics to ‘Nessun Dorma’ (None shall sleep), an aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot - one of the best known tenor arias in opera - grace this stunning and rare olive green Kelly, in an embroidered interpretation of wood block stamping. The opera, set in China, brings this art form poetically back to China and Jay Ahr’s roots.
This bag is a vintage Hermès Kelly Sellier 28 first produced in 1973. Detailed with palladium plated hardware it comes with a detachable clochette with two encased keys and a padlock. The bag stands tall on protective feet and is carried by a single padded top handle. The smooth box calf leather gives a glossy finish yet firm hold creating the structural lines synonymous with the Sellier.
