While I was at Christies Auction House a few months back to check out the George Michael Art Collection, I decided to poke around a bit to see what other goodies they had ready to go on the block, and that is when I spotted this cute little Hermes bag with a face and arms, which I discovered is called a Kelly Doll Bag. The Kelly Doll is a take on the classic Hermes Kelly bag, but with little arms, legs, and a smiling face. The bag’s turnlock closure serves as the nose, and the arms are moveable, so you can even pose your doll bag if you’d like! Specifically designed for the SOGO department store opening in Hong Kong, these tiny bags measure just 6″ W x 5.5″ H x 2.5″ and are so rare that they can only be found at auction. Selling prices range from $25,000 to over $100,000!

I was at the Architectural Digest Design Show a few weeks ago, cutting through one booth on the way to another booth, when I noticed that someone had left this totally sick Fuchsia Pink Crocodile Hermes Bag completely unattended — which is insane, because regardless of what’s inside it, this bag alone is worth as much as a car. But what caught my attention even more than the bag’s awesome pinkness, was this hilarious caricature of designer-god Karl Lagerfeld, rendered in vinyl and rabbit fur, and hanging from the purse’s strap by a key ring.
