The French fashion house introduced the leather sac à dépêches in 1935. Later, in 1956, a photo of Grace Kelly, who had become the new Princess Grace of Monaco, was shown using the sac à dépêches to hide her pregnancy from the paparazzi. The photography appeared in ‘Life’ magazine and it was soon seen by people all over the world. Therefore, everyone began calling this bag the ‘Kelly’. As a consequence, the sac was renamed after the gorgeous princess and the bag started to gain popularity.

The Kelly has an unique piece that makes the bag easy to identify: the metal-tipped clasp, which can be closed with a small padlock.
