The chic Bal Harbour shops recently opened up a Chloe store. Vlad and I checked it out last week, of course to see what handbags were there. We were both psyched to see that Chloe has finally begun listening to its crowd, they are releasing Paddingtons with much smaller padlocks. I am happy because it means the bag won’t hurt me, and Vlad is happy because it means that he will not have to hear me complain. There were quite a few new clutches, this being one of them, and all were ultimately un-moving. This Chloe Chain Handle Bag is far from anything out of the ordinary. The only aspects of this small bag I like are the black leather along with metallic leather patching. So, pretty much, I merely like the leather and colors. The shape is perfectly fine, it is a clutch shape. But the focal point of the bag, the closure along with a tortoiseshell clasp really looks cheap online and unfortunately looked cheap to me in person. The chunky chain strap is overpowering for a small handbag. All in all, it is just not me. Via NAP for $1,035.
