The legendary “it” bag and luxury status symbol, the Hermes Kelly, has been magnified by 15 times its original size for a special exhibit in London.

The Kellydoscope, which stands 4 meters (13 feet) high, took more than five months to develop. Every detail of the regular-sized Kelly has been faithfully reproduced on the giant tan leather-bound and beige toile fabric-lined one.
