Ready to join the exclusive Hermes Horseshoe Club? The horseshoe stamp indicates a special order - a customised handbag - a privilege accorded to a select clientele. In short, it is only offered to individuals that have a proven history of brand loyalty to Hermes and a familiar relationship with an Hermes sales associate who has a strong and consistent purchase record.
The tiny but highly-esteemed horseshoe stamp validates the bag’s absolute exclusivity above other Hermes bags, and its owner’s status in the world of Hermes. Only on rare occasions will you find a special order bag on the resale market, even more a brand new one at that.
Like this brand new Kelly Retourne in size 28, in a much-loved shade of grey, Gris Mouette, that was introduced by Hermes during its Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
Crafted in Togo leather with palladium-plated hardware, the bag is relatively light when empty, yet has enough body to hold its shape well. The horseshoe symbol is present beside the logo, indicating its special order status. This is an extremely rare piece, more so because it has never been used. Made in 2018, it bears a “C” stamp and comes with its strap clochette, lock, keys, dustbags, felt cloth, rain protector, care card, box and original receipt.
