    U Circle, 1991
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    12" Width x 9" Height x 4.5" Depth
    An unbelievable collectors piece, this bag, deemed the Kelly Nuages, is a fabulous example of the creativity of Hermes. Combining three incredible materials, in a multitude of colors and shapes, this bag is sure to entice seasoned collectors, vintage Hermes enthusiasts, and the stylishly retro alike. Nuages, or "clouds" in French, refers to the fun patchwork pattern that seems to float across this bag. This bag is done in Gold Courchevel Leather, and features one Shiny Miel Alligator handle and accents, and a truly stunning array of Ficelle, Sable, Cognac, Marron Fonce, and Bordeaux Ostrich "nuages". This bag is finished with Palladium Hardware, one removable Shiny Miel Alligator shoulder strap, and a butterfly clasp closure. The interior is done in Gold Chevre Leather, featuring one zip pocket and two adjacent slip pockets.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is some creasing to the exterior leather, scratching to the hardware, and some light scuffs to the exterior in places. The interior shows light scuffing and denting and some very faint black marks. There is significant scratching and patina to the clous. This bag includes an Hermes dustbag.
