Hermès Birkin Sizes

The Birkin bag is available in four main sizes, catering to different needs and occasions. Below, we outline each size along with its measurements. It’s important to note that the size number corresponds to the measurement in centimeters along the base of the bag, a standard for all Hermès handbags.

Birkin 25

The Birkin 25 is 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) wide, 20 centimeters (7.8 inches) high, and 13 centimeters (5.1 inches) deep. This size is the smallest in the Birkin range, typically reserved for exclusive and elegant occasions due to its limited capacity for storing items. There is also a Birkin 20 but is only reserved for the production of some Limited-edition Birkin bags.

Birkin 30

The Birkin 30 is 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) wide, 22 centimeters (8.6 inches) high, and 16 centimeters (6.2 inches) deep. It’s a popular choice for casual occasions when the wearer needs a little bit more storage space, but wants to have a comfortable bag to carry them.

Birkin 35

The Birkin 35 is 35 centimeters (13.7 inches) wide at the base, 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) high, and 18 centimeters (7 inches) deep.

Birkin 40

hermes-birkin-40-bag

The Birkin 40 is 40 centimeters (15.7 inches) wide at the base, 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) tall, and has a depth of 21 centimeters (8.2 inches). It’s the largest size and is often used for travel or for carrying many belongings. However, it may not be ideal for everyday use due to its potential weight when carried for long periods.

Birkin Bag Constructions

birkin-bag-construction

Hermès Birkin bags are crafted in two distinctive styles: the Sellier and the Retourné. The Sellier style pays homage to Hermès’ roots as the premier saddler to French nobility. This construction method features external stitching, creating precise, flawless seams that give the handbag a meticulously structured appearance, ensuring it retains its shape for years, even decades. In contrast, the Retourné style produces softer, curved lines at the seams with piping, resulting in a more relaxed silhouette.

Traditionally, the Retourné was the sole construction method used for the Birkin. However, in 2014, Hermès introduced the first Birkin Sellier, a Black 40cm with palladium hardware. Crafted from the rigid leather Vache Hunter and featuring an unlined interior, this edition became highly coveted and limited. Initially, the Birkin Sellier had restricted availability until 2019 when it became more widely accessible.

Hermès Kelly Sizes

The Kelly bag is available in 6 different sizes, each serving different purposes, from formal events to casual outings and even travel. This iconic bag offers a range of sizes and shapes to suit every need. The size number corresponds to the measurement in centimeters of the bag’s base.

Mini Kelly 20

The Kelly Mini, also known as the Kelly 20, is a coveted accessory perfect for formal occasions. Its petite and elegant design makes it an ideal complement. The Kelly Mini measures 20 centimeters (7.8 inches) in width, 16 centimeters (6.2 inches) in height, and 10 centimeters (3.9 inches) in depth.

Kelly 25

Measuring 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) in width, 19 centimeters (7.4 inches) in height, and 9 centimeters (3.5 inches) in depth, the Kelly 25 strikes the perfect balance between style and practicality.

Kelly 28

The Kelly 28 is a timeless choice for those seeking a more spacious option for casual wear. With dimensions of 28 centimeters (11 inches) in width, 22 centimeters (8.6 inches) in height, and 10 centimeters (3.9 inches) in depth, the Kelly 28 offers ample room without compromising on style.

Kelly 32

The Kelly 32 is another popular size for the Kelly bag, offering slightly more storage space than the Kelly 28. With dimensions of 32 centimeters (12.5 inches) in width, 23 centimeters (9 inches) in height, and 10.5 centimeters (4.1 inches) in depth, the Kelly 32 is a great choice for casual outings or day trips when you need to carry more items.

Kelly 35

With dimensions of 35 centimeters (13.7 inches) in width, 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) in height, and 12 centimeters (4.7 inches) in depth, it offers ample room for all your essentials while remaining comfortable to carry.

Kelly 40

The Kelly 40 is the largest size available for the Kelly handbag, offering ample space for travel or carrying numerous items. With dimensions of 40 centimeters (15.7 inches) in width, 28 centimeters (11 inches) in height, and 16 centimeters (6.2 inches) in depth, it provides versatility and functionality for those with a need for extra storage.

Kelly Bag Constructions

hermes-kelly-bag-construction

Similar to the Birkin bag, the Kelly also comes in two styles: the Sellier and the Retourné. The Kelly Sellier features exposed top-stitching along its seams and a geometric trapezoidal shape, giving it a sharp and structured look. It is typically crafted from harder, more rigid leathers like Epsom or Box Calf Leather. The Sellier construction is the original way in which the Kelly bag was produced since its beginnings.

In contrast, the Kelly Retourné has smoother exterior seams covered by leather piping, creating a softer and more relaxed appearance. It is crafted from softer leathers such as Togo and Clemence. While the Kelly Retourné can hold more than its Sellier counterpart, overfilling it can cause it to sag and lose its shape. In recent years, the Kelly Retourné has become increasingly popular, often preferred over the Birkin Retourné due to its shoulder strap.

Kelly Bag Versions

Aside from the main sizes for Kelly handbags, through the years, Hermès introduced different variations or versions of the classic Kelly bag, bringing up more ways to carry out the legacy of this bag and giving clients the choice to use it more comfortably. Here are the available Kelly bag versions.
