I always have such high hopes for See by Chloe’s bags, but season after season, they continue to leave me wanting something a little different. Or, in the case of the See by Chloe Poya Mini Bag, a lot different.
This little purse certainly would be better in black and probably would be better in almost any color other than the ones before us, but alas, this is what we have to evaluate. For $300, you can do a lot better.
Although general girlishness doesn’t bother me in the least (You should see all the full skirts in my closet), the scalloped edges around this bag seem like a rather cheap-looking afterthought to spruce up a rather middling design. Rendering them in a different shade of brown doesn’t much help the cause, particularly in a crowded contemporary bag market where many other $300 minibags are vying your your consumer cash. Buy through Saks for $295.
