Chloe Hedda Large Tote

I am thinking they should change the name of this bag. This bag should be called the Chloe Hella Large Tote versus Chloe Hedda Large Tote. Dimensions are large, 22″x22″x7″ with a short handle drop of 4″. I am having a hard time even reviewing this bag because of the size factor and the obvious weight factor that will come into play.

One thing Chloe bags are very well-known for is their hefty weight. The leather Chloe uses is extremely thick and sturdy. It has become rather expected from Chloe bags. I still love my Chloe Paddington, but I would be lying if I said it never gave me a problem because of how heavy it is. And now this bag comes into the picture.

The Chloe Hedda Large Tote is a cool bag, don’t get me wrong. There is a very urban street chic vibe going on. The double handles only have a 4″ drop so this would need to be carried in the crux of your arm or by hand. The body of the bag features black stamped leather and gold tone hardware. The front features a fold-over flap with a turnlock fastening, which seems to be a trend we also saw on the Coach Kristin collection recently. All I need to finish my review of this bag is a scale to weigh it, and/or a half day carrying it around with my typical essentials to see how heavy it is. Chances are this bag will double as a weight lift workout for those that carry it (make sure to switch up arms!). For me, this bag is too much to handle. Buy through Net A Porter for $2030.

    I believe this bag is not comfortable to carry. It only gives you one option. If you end up shopping or buying groceries or go out to the bar for a social drink, There really is no comfortable way of holding it, it is rather clumpsy and odd to carry.

    This is a great carryall bag! I think it might be a bit heavy to carry if it’s too full but I like it!

  • Eva

    it looks like a very nice bag

  • mette

    Without the flap, this bag could serve as some sort of a travel bag, but ouch, too expensive for that purpose.

    I like totes/big bags…but agree with your reference to it as a Hella large tote. Other than the size, it looks like a fabulous bag.

  • bopper

    It looks beautiful but does not work on any level. It is too heavy, the straps are too short and the proportion is all wrong. I think they can do better

  • Mel

    Bobber has said it well. They can do better.

  • 19yearslater

    Very cool, but it’s too long for the short straps.

  • Don

    This looks like a weekender bag.

  • otter

    Looks like something a country doctor would lug around.

    I finally have this bag!! I searched for it for the longest time. The Chloe outlet sent it to me. It is so much bigger in person. So big that I haven’t used it yet but I do love staring at it.

      I have the smaller version and I love looking at it too.But it has been sent to the chloe factory because the small long strap snapped possibly due to filling such a large bag.It has been gone a long time thanks to the chloe factory closing for the whole of August.I miss it though and had planned to build my winter wardrobe around it!
