Chloe Ely Medium BagI’ve really enjoyed all of the Chloe bags this season so far, so seeing the Chloe Ely Medium Bag today for the first time made me kind of sad. It’s the first of this season’s accessories line that I don’t like in any way, and I’ve got a couple reasons as to why. First, it’s just kinda…square. It looks more like a carry-on for an airplane, or maybe a toiletries case, than a handbag to be used for everyday purposes. Second, the finish of the leather.

I HATE when designers do this – it’s somewhere between regular leather and a full-on patent gloss, and it tends to make leather stiffer, less touchable, and less like anything that actually came from an animal at some point. In short, it makes the bag look cheap, and they did some weird striping with it that made me questions whether it was real leather or just a treated canvas. For two grand, I don’t want to have to question. This also isn’t my favorite color, but compared to the other issues, that’s not that big of a deal. On the upside, it does look nice and roomy, the lining is light-colored for easy of use, and I like the woven handles. But that’s really the only upside I’ve got for you on this one. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2055.

    totally agree… everything about this bag is subpar

    Except for the handle you could find hundreds of bags just like this on the toiletries shelf of your local drugstore. I found tons in the cupboard under my grandmother’s sink.
    I believe they were called Gift With Purchase

    Amanda you pretty much hit the nail on the head with your feedback on this one…I sincerely feel the exact same way!

    I am waitihg for the day Chloe creates something that’s not so heavy looking.

    Thanks for sharing with us! :)

    I agree with your comments. Chloe has not been up to par lately.

  • hazel

    You are so right! This totally makes me think toiletries bag!

  • Terra

    I agree, but I do think the color would be fabulous for fall!

  • Merve

    This bag is so wrong in so many ways.
