For the longest time I associated Chloé with shoulder bags. It took me a while to realize that Chloé also really knows how to make exquisite clutches. Maybe that was a bit close-minded of me. But hey, I’ve realized the error of my way and I now expect all sorts of fabulous bags from Chloé, not just what I was originally accustom to.

My opinion began to change when I saw Amanda’s review of the Chloé Leather Bow Clutch last fall and continued recently with Megs’ review of the Chloé Iris Strass Chrochet Clutch. So, I’ve been keeping my eye out for more amazing creations and have found yet another one I really enjoy.


The word that continues to pop up in my mind when looking at the Chloé Etty Small Brushed-Leather Clutch is glamor. This clutch has gold-brushed leather, gold zip fastening along the front and gold-tone beaded trim. I don’t know about you but sometimes I stray away from all gold or silver bags. For me, they can look like they have far too much going on. It’s almost like a bit of overkill. However, that is not even remotely close to what we have here. Instead, each gold element plays off of the next wonderfully. It is as if each gold element whirls and twirls with the next in perfect unison. Open the clutch and you will find black leather which will obviously offer a dark contrast to the shimmer you see on the outside of the bag. And imagine how many outfits this could work well with – tons! Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1265.

  • swags

    I like it, its very pretty. I am surprised there are so many reviews for clutches on here. Do many people use them that often? I find I only use them for weddings or holiday parties. (fb)

    • Tamee

      Wedding season is just around the corner – come June! (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    gorgeous iLove it, chloe rocks lately have you noticed? :)

  • Tamee

    I think this really works because it’s a subdued gold, not shiny. If it were shiny it would be too much and make it gaudy. VERY PRETTY! (fb)

  • Irene

    Understated but sophisticated – beautiful. The details look exquisite too. (fb)

  • Rosanna

    This is too cute! I’m surprised its made out of leather though! (fb)

  • 19yearslater

    Love this. Glam, the beading makes it sophisticated and fancy without going overboard, and that tassel is adorable. Perfect clutch.

  • Cate

    Glamor is the perfect word. Understated, but still absolutely fantastic. (fb)

  • Inger

    In my next life I will be a designer I think, make beautiful, handsome bags and purses :-) this one is smashing ( fb )

  • lalala

    Cute clutch,I quite like it.(fb)

  • Beth

    Does anyone else think the brushing on the leather makes it look like it has a denim effect? I still like it, but the first thing that jumped out at me was “gold jeans”, lol. (fb)

  • Pat

    I think this clutch is fabulous. I really like the tassel detail for the zipper pull. (fb)

    • Pookie F. – (Stacy)

      I agree that I really like the tassel. It really adds a little something-something to the bag. As does the detailing around the zipper (fb)

  • Shine

    if you are looking for a clutch bag that will definitely match any outfit that you have this is an excelent purchase, i can imagine myself in denim jeans and chilling out with this purse as my bag, or in the club, attending social function.. This will definitely make other people jealous (“,). (fb)

  • Pookie F. – (Stacy)

    At first glance I really like it and want to see it in person but I had to go to the website to get a better view (ZOOM-IN). Now after looking at it “closer”, if you will, I have some issues…Can anyone answer my first 2??
    1. Is the gold woven in the leather and if so, is it going to unravel?? It looks like the gold is unraveling or missing in some places on the bag. Even on the picture you have shown here – the right side of the bag – near the zipper, shows gold is missing.
    2. The zipper is on the side of the bag and not on top. I don’t know if this is pratical for me. Is there less room with a side zipper than a top zipper? (I keep thinking about the pencil case I have with a side zipper – not much room to carry “essentials”.
    3. Doesn’t offer a removeable strap – clutches start making my hand cramp and I have to switch hands often.

  • Karen

    I’m not feelin this one. It’s too upholstery fabric looking for my taste. Like, your aunt’s couch that she covered in plastic to keep it nice kind of upolstery.:p

  • Debbie

    Not loving it. :( The detailing around the zipper and the tassel remind me of some curtains or something. (fb)

  • Lydia

    In my mind this has Carrie Bradshaw written all over it. I’ll take it! (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    Just enough but not too much ! With Stacy’s concerns, I think the wear section near the zip is the original color below the gold brushing (not sure). Good point – would need to see it. Overall I love the glamour of this clutch. (fb)

  • Lilly P.

    It is gorgeous! (fb)

  • Connie

    I love the use of different types of chain as detailing around the zipper. (fb)

    does this little tiny thing really cost over a thousand dollars? are you people crazy???
    Have we lost our minds?
    Try scraping for a living. Try worrying about how you’re going to pay the insurance on your car when you spent your last fifty bucks on milk and cereal for the kids.
    Geez! I’m blown away about what these designers charge and for what SOME people actually Pay for this stuff. Spread the wealth, willya?
    you could get the same size bag at the dollar store for pennies, and it works just as well.
