Prada vs Chloe

Prada versus Chloe. Which of these two bags would you choose? Vlad and I need to make a decision for a gift for a friend of ours, Pam from ThatPamChick. Fairly new into the world of luxury handbags, Pam wants to find a bag she can use everyday. We narrowed it down to two and now it is time for you all to tell us what you think!

Prada: This Prada bag is an instant classic. A simple hobo shape with buttery calfskin leather and slight pleating detail, this is truly a bag that will last for seasons. Prada does calfskin like no other, so worst case Pam can use this as a pillow in a time of need. There is an 8″ shoulder drop and dimensions are 13½”W X 11″H X 6″D. $1550 via Saks.

Chloe: I adore this Chloe bag. It mixes a bit of a work feel with a totally timeless touch. This is the Chloe Victoria Tote which also is sporting beautiful Italian leather with a metallic bow hardware. There are double handles and the dimensions are 16½”W X 12″H X 3″D. $1295 via Saks.

    I voted for the Chloe for two reasons: 1) the color is the PERFECT shade of cognac; 2) the leather looks divine. I know it’s a good bit larger than the Prada, and they are both timeless. However, the Chloe is much more interesting, IMO, without being overstated, and can serve as a handbag and tote in one! I am in love. Let us know what you end up getting Pam!

    I too voted for the Chloe. The colour is amazing. I think the Prada looks like an “older” bag whereas the Chloe looks ageless! If it were me receiving the gift I’d definitely thank you more for the Chloe – in fact I think I’d do your laundry for a month if I received that as a gift LMAO :P

  • Oddly enough, I voted for the Prada, if only for how amazing I know its leather would be in person. Also, I think a first-time handbag receiver would be more excited by a Prada, probably. Plus I’m a hobo person.

  • Lyns

    aahh! I feel like I’m cheating on Prada here, but I vote Chloe.
    Love the leather and the size!

  • renee

    I voted Prada. I love the black. The shape is great! It can go with everything and is timeless.

  • TygerKitty (Laura)

    Although I think the chloe is beautiful and rich looking; I chose the Prada because it’s a shoulder bag and a shoulder bag is the only type of bag I would use on a daily basis.

  • greenpixie

    This Prada edges out the Chloe since I think a) it can be more easily dressed up or down, b) is more versatile as a daily-use handbag and c) comfy shoulder drop is a must for a daily bag for me. Plus it is gorgeous!

    the prada is waaaay better than the chloe in look, color, structure, etc…in general, chloe disappoints me just about all the time. every time i feel chloe bags, there is something about the leather that makes it feel cheap and way too delicate for the price tag. i don’t know what they do to their leather, but to me it always feels horrible. the prada bag looks much more polished and grown up. i guess i’m biased, but chloe bags are just too sub par.

  • Krystal

    Well I’d usually go for a prada over a chole, but with this comparison I’m going with chloe. The bag is absolutely gorgeous, i love the coulour and the shape.

    The prada to me, looks a little dated.

  • Mukik

    I voted for Chloe because I like the color and shape a bit better, although Prada is probably a better option in a long run because of the name. But in all honesty I recently got my first Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag and I am in love. Although RM is obviously a cheaper option in comparison to the two options above, IMHO it would be a great every day bag. You obviously know your friend better and should also go with what her style would fit better. Best of luck

    PRADA – no competition.

  • Sarah

    I think the Prada is better since it will last forever, and I mean forever. Another option is one of the other Prada Fall 09 bags since almost all of them are classic, functional, gorgeous, and timeless.

  • Kimberley

    I vote for the Chloe. It is is feminine bag with an amazing color, and lately the Chloe bags have been stunning in detailing, leather quality and durability. Modern and fresh, I think it would not be her last Chloe purchase. Alexander Wang also makes some of the most delicious leather bags, and his Fall 09 line up is gorgeous. I personally think Prada is simply too dated and although it is considered a classic brand, it lacks imagination or excitement.

  • Cadence

    I’m with Lyns when I say that I feel like I cheated on Prada but that Chloe bag is to drool for. I would take it in a heartbeat. In fact, very little thinking went into my vote….I mean that in a good way. Instant love.

  • dierregi

    I like them both and find it very hard to choose – like deciding who’s your favourite child when you have twins :-)

  • bunny

    well i really wish the chloe was the prada and the prada was the chloe, because for me, i love prada, but this particular prada is a lil bit boring in comparison with the chloe. i have the prada cervo lux shoulder bag and i LOVE it, if it was the bag you’re comparing with the chloe now then prada would win hands down.

    but in terms of brand names, for a first time, prada is btter, it’s more classy and well known, and anyway the logo isnt shouted out like monogrammed bags.

  • jen

    chloe hands down…it’s gorgeous.
