chloe maya bag

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. With the new season comes new handbags, and Chloe has released the Chloe Maya Bags which come in fresh bursts of color, turquoise and violet. The look on these bags are different than most of the Chloe bags I have seen; sporting a modern vibe with quirky accents and additions. First, we have the turquoise Chloe Maya Large Shoulder Bag which is true to its name, in that its dimensions are ridiculously large (Width 15.5″, Handle Drop 10.5″, Height 15.5″, Depth 6.5″). Chloe leather is known to be thick and heavy and they did not seem to change that for these handbags. There is an adjustable canvas strap across the top and two front zip fastenings. Then we have the Chloe Maya Shoulder Bag which is also very large (meaning also very heavy). This bag sports an east/west style, with a width of 18″, and there is a zipped pocket on the front and open pouch at the back. The east/west version is a tad more expensive than the large version. $1405 via NAP and $1540 via NAP. Overall, I am not wowed. The sizes are enormous and will surely lead to tendinitis, as did the Paddington for many of its wearers, but at least it is a different look!

An aside, if any of this does not make sense or there are huge errors, blame it on my 6 hour jet lag and lack of sleep

    I am loving the violet color…but I’m not sure if I can really deal with such a huge/heavy bag!

  • Sherri

    I think the bright colors are fabulous, my bags are always heavy anyway because of all the crap I put in them so it’s no big deal.

  • hsensi

    I love the colors but with the canvas strap they look like beach bags and I would never spend that much on a beach bag.

  • Tamara Goldstein

    I’ve been finding that the chloe bags have been getting really heavy. I’m thinking of getting a Temperley bag- the leathers are always amazing and soft. Does anyone have any experience with this brand?

  • purseloco

    YUCK! :shock:

  • coco13

    I like them; particularly the turquoise one. I think they’ll brighten up the winter and allow you to carry huge amounts of crap which is always good…

  • Karen

    I like the size and the colors…anything big, bright and borderline obnoxious is a must-have in my book.

  • asil

    I actually REALLY like them….honestly…wasnt a big fan of paddingtons…and these are funky, young, colourful but also have maturity to them…I LIKE :)

      Hi, just read your comment about your chloe bag. I would love to get one but im a bit worried, how would i no if it is genuine?. Many thanks Maria

  • Christina

    I’m in love with the purple one (color and shape), but the handles make me look away. They cheapen the entire thing.

  • william

    These are so cute; what a great find! The only drawback is the size, which is ridiculous, as you stated. It’s good to see Chloe move in a new direction.

  • Barlow

    don’t shoot the messenger, but you have used the #1 forbidden word for fashion bloggers according to Visconti Is Me. :cry:

  • Hot bitch

    LOVE THEM. I think this is a good thing for Chloe, I see them being veryyy popular, and the price is not horrible.

  • mette

    Horrible,terrible what else could I say. These bags should never have been released.The price is LOL too.

  • Tina

    I love the color and the style.
    But the size is way to big!

  • yenny

    i like the color but not the style…. and the straps make them look cheap!

  • Julie

    Love the colours, but the price is a little ridiculous and they’re too big for me. Those mannequins are 5’11”, image that bag on my 5’2″ body. I’d be dragging them on the floor :roll:

  • Allie

    I love the colors! They are much more fresh and lighter than the blacks and browns Chloe usually does but they are too big and chunky! I think that these colors on a paddington would be adorable! It would help make their bags less clunky =/

    • purseloco

      I agree,I think that these colors would look refreshing on the Paddinton, it might make me want to buy one.

  • leck

    hubby gave me one and i love love it! the leather is amazingly soft and the color (violet) is just amazing!
