Ok, so I was not a huge fan of the Chloe Bay Bag when I first saw it. Then, it began to grow on me. I began to see the signature Chloe bag appeal, the oversized hardware, thick leather, and sturdy-chic appeal. So then I found myself loving the bag. Loving it when I saw someone walk down the street wearing it and loving how easy the bag is to be worn casually.
Chloe Handbags and Purses(Page 8)
The Chloe Saskia bags were released in February and were supposed to be a huge hit for Chloe. But these bags have mixed reviews, and the feelings are extreme either way. Most either absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. I see the response being the same for the smaller version of this handbag, the Chloe Saskia Patchwork Pouchette.
Chloe bags have a following that is a force to be reckoned with. One of my favorite aspects of Chloe is that when they design one bag, they take it to every hobo, satchel, clutch, and tote in every color possible so that their customers can find exactly what they are looking for. The Chloe Bay Bag was a huge hit (even with Britney Spears!), and remains to be one of the house favorites after the Paddington.
I think it is finally safe for any siblings of the Chloe Paddington. No one wants to live in the shadow, and that includes handbags within their own families. I love my Paddington, but I am ready to love again from the house of Chloe. A new and modern bag, the Chloe Anoushka Bag is different and stands out. Some may find it to look sloppy, but I find it artistic with a bit of a punk edge.
It seems Saks decided to go big for spring, whereby bringing in every new ‘it’ bag that is now impossible to find or get on a list for. First they stocked the Prada Fairy Bag which was snatched up so quick, that it was no longer available after two days of being on the website. And now, the Chloe Transitions Color Block Bag has made a bold statement at Saks, also reaching its pre-order quota.
Chloe Saskia Bags
About three years ago one of the biggest “it” bag frenzies took over the handbag world. Do you remember which bag it was? The Chloe Paddington of course. Vlad and I were lucky enough to track down our very own Chloe Paddington in Munich, Germany in the summer of 2005. We spent over 13 hours driving that day to pick up the bag.
Even though we have only officially lived in South Florida for a few days, the fashionable come out in multitudes everyday. This is the land of dressing up to go get groceries. This morning Vlad and I took the dog for a walk, and if anyone drove by and saw my outfit they would have literally fallen over laughing. Striped pants, purple sandals, and a black vest (on top of my old shirt of course).
Chloe bags have created a large following because of their casual style and sturdy leathers. After the Chloe Paddington created a huge buzz; amassing long wait lists, high eBay prices, and exorbitant knock-offs, Chloe realized they hand landed in the handbag world. Chloe continues to produce new bags each season that wow their followers, though none other have become as large of hits as the Paddington.
This is a stunning Chloe handbag, minus the whole heavy leather ordeal. I was never a huge fan of the Bay bag, especially in the larger versions, because it is just too heavy. I already own two Paddington bags that are used rarely because of the weight issue. But this bag I can handle, I think.
I have not been super impressed with any of the Chloe handbags released as of late. They look the same as all the others, they are ridiculously heavy, and really just not that appealing to the eye. It would be one thing if they looked great and were heavy to lug around, but that is not quite the case. Now Chloe has geared up and is ready for Spring and Summer.
