Is it the Paraty or the Paratay? Net A Porter and Saks seem to think differently on the spelling of this hit Chloe bag. The luscious python version of the Paraty got the handbag world buzzing, questioning the designer and desiring to be on the wait list. The python version had my full attention as well. But last week when I saw the Paratay in Saks I was left feeling not completely satisfied. It was not that I was totally unimpressed, but I was at least partially unimpressed. Nothing overly amazing in person and I even saw it in a luscious hue of green. I can blame the lackluster feeling on my shopping ban though, so I may have a skewed perception. This mustard yellow color is rich and beautiful on the Chloe Paratay Tote which will slide over the shoulder for a day tote. The color is called chrome yellow and is available for pre-order at Saks now. The goldtone details offset the leather coloring perfectly and the dimensions of the tote are 21″W X 14Â½”H X 8Â¼”H. Buy through Saks for $2,195.
The ultimate question, how do you really spell the name of this bag: Paraty or Paratay?
