  • The Birkin is rated much better than the Kelly.

Hermes Kelly is designed with style and a touch of luxury. On the other hand, Hermes Birkin is designed for the everyday normal use.

One immediate difference between the two handbags is the handles. While the Kelly has one handle on top and a shoulder strap, the Birkin features two top handles and no shoulder strap. The Kelly looks elegant carried either in your hand or across the body. Hermes Birkin is meant to be carried only in the crook of your arm.

Also note that the closure system on either bags differs. The Birkin is worn with the lock undone so that it's very easy to grab any item when needed. As for the Kelly, the flap must be closed to prevent straining of the handle.

These bags are almost similar in design. Bayswater has a classic shape and timeless design. It has a postman lock signature that makes it a mulberry icon. The bag features a simple tote and zip version. It also features a front flap. It has one main compartment, an internal zip pocket and two internal slip pockets. Hermes Birkin, on the other hand, is highly known as the most sought-after bag in the globe. You will love its craftsmanship and timeless design.

The bags are not only repairable for life but also never go out of style. It has similar features as the Mulberry Bayswater apart from the top, flip design and the Hermes Birkin is much expensive. It comes in a tote, hobo, shoulder bag and clutch design.
