Hermès Kellydoscope

hermes-kellyoscope-1_newSingapore, October 2016 – The invitation from Hermès read, “Discover the secrets of the interactive ‘Kellydoscope’ a super-sized fantasy Kelly.” There is always a certain sense of mystery to the maison’s exhibitions and even their invitations that makes one very curious.

Upon arrival at the Ngee Ann City Atrium (Takashimaya), I came face to face with a gigantic Kelly bag! The 12 ft. Kelly is made of toile and LadyCalf leather, and has all the Kelly features with clochette, sangles, plaque, lock and clous .

Oh, the giant Kelly bag was moving… shaking gently. The Hermès personnel directed me to a queue to “enter” the bag. Hmm, at this point, I was more than intrigued. What was inside?

The secret entrance was actually on the left side of the Kelly; by lifting the brown leather, I found a mini darkened room, with a seat for one (yup, the seat was no ordinary stool, but a huge round orange Hermès box).

Fancy a ride on a bicycle with you as the Kelly bag?   A glass of champagne? A dance?  Three short  video clips provide the visual experience of you as a Kelly bag. Uh-huh, now the moving bag made sense!

I personally think this is the perfect ode to The Kelly Bag, one of the most iconic handbags of all time!
