After diving into the rabbit hole of the world that is Hermés, I’ve grown to fall more and more in love with the brand’s designs. I’m not the only one who loves Hermés this much either, as a popular handbag that is always suggested by people to review is the iconic Kelly.

Just as classic as the Birkin, the Kelly is a more petite bag that, to me, seems more subtle and refined in comparison to the more bold status symbol that is synonymous with the Birkin. I’d love to elevate my outfit with the Birkin, but sometimes it’s way too much and I want something more simple.

This Kelly-inspired handbag marks my 3rd handbag from Ainifeel, and just like the rest of the bags in the Ainifeel Amazon store, this one definitely does not disappoint.

A brief introduction to Ainifeel: the Ainifeel Amazon store is filled with beautiful dupes of popular designer handbags. Although Ainifeel carries styles similar to Chanel and Céline, Ainifeel’s store also consists largely of several Hermés-inspired bags like the BirkinJypsiere, Lindy, and Garden Party as well.

All of Ainifeel’s products are made from genuine leather, suede, sheepskin and high-quality hardware, making these handbags a significant step above most designer dupes you will find at stores like Forever 21 or H&M. In fact, I’d like to say that their handbags are much better than even dupes that use genuine leather materials. Ainifeel just surpasses them. They have so much attention to detail and their items are just so intricately crafted for the price that you pay.

Another bonus of this company: some of their Hermés-inspired bags not only come in regular leather, but they also come in crocodile, ostrich, snakeskin, and lizard too. All of these textiles are actually leather but are embossed to create each respective skin’s look and feel.

Softer Leather

While I’ve purchased many genuine leather dupes from places like Aliexpress, I’ve learned that the differences in leather means that not all leathers are the same. Most dupe manufacturers use split or bonded leather due to its cheaper price, which results in a much more stiff leather. I can’t say that this bag is a full grain or top grain leather (highest quality leathers), but it is definitely much softer than most “genuine leather” cheaper quality bags I’ve purchased before.

Quality Hardware and Accessories

As always, the hardware with this Ainifeel handbag is all metal, not plastic, which gives the key and padlock some weight.

Also included with the bag is a shoulder strap and a cute twilly scarf which can be wrapped around the top handle for protection (and style!). A good way to wrap the scarf is by starting in the middle and wrapping outwards towards the ends so both ends of the scarf are even. At the ends, simply tie a knot to secure the scarf.

Inside the Bag

I ordered the 28cm (11″ long x 4″wide x 7.5″ high), which I feel is a perfect size for the Kelly. I previously ordered a 25cm handbag from Aliexpress in the same style but it was far too small so I wound up returning it – the 3 cm makes a huge difference, trust me.

The 30cm could be a good possibility if you need a bigger bag, but since the bag only has a single handle it might not be practical to carry that much in this bag. If you want a bigger bag, get the Birkin-inspired handbag in 30cm instead (or 35cm if you fancy larger bags).

The interior is lined with leather and also has one zipper pocket as well as 2 open pockets, which gives you some freedom to organize your smaller items like lipsticks, mirrors, feminine products etc.

If I had to improve one thing on this bag, I would probably nix the brand logo above the lock on the inside fold – I’m a really minimalistic person and hate logos of any sort, whether it’s designer or dupe. That might be a personal preference, but if anybody is just like me, the logo can easily be rubbed off with a pencil eraser without doing any damage to the leather. Just like, you know, be careful.

Overall, with the accuracy of the design and quality of materials, this handbag is definitely worth the purchase if you adore the design of the Kelly but don’t want to spend $8,500 for a basic one at the Hermés store. Of course, other competitors like Aliexpress may carry the same design, but like I mentioned earlier – I bought this style from Aliexpress and wound up returning it because I didn’t feel the quality was as good as this one.

    Hey, so since I’m from Croatia (Europe) buying over amazon is a total killer on my budget- like shipping is super pricey, almost another bag. So I looked at Ali-express and Ainifeel has a official site there too. My question for you is do you this its true or false. The prices are the same but I am worried since I never got something from Ali-express. Thank you in advance 🙂

      I haven’t bought Ainifeel handbags from Aliexpress but if it’s the same seller I’m sure it’s the same quality! You also have buyer protection on Aliexpress so if anything goes wrong, you’re backed! 🙂
