When you hear the name Hermes, you probably think of the famed Birkin and Kelly bags. There are many other bags the leather house creates beyond those two icons, and most are fairly recognizable. Sometimes a true rarity pops up, though, and this time I ran into a bag I’ve never seen at Heritage Auctions.

Kimora Lee Simmons was recently spotted arriving at LAX with an Hermes Birkin, which seems like a natural choice for her. We just saw Kimora Lee traveling with a Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag and her investment banker boyfriend Tim Leissner last month, mere DAYS before it was revealed (by her ex, Russell Simmons, no less) that the couple had secretly wed some time ago.
Lindsay Lohan took a minute to pose for paps and fans outside her Soho apartment last week. On her arm is a eye-catching, bright orange Hermes Soft Kelly.

Here’s Dorothy Wang, one of the stars of E! reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, headed into Dan Tana’s restaurant in LA, carrying a bubblegum pink Hermes Kelly Bag and a shopping bag from Barneys. I’ve never seen the show, but my editor Amanda tells me that it’s a great hate-watch, and that Dorothy is really funny.
