Chloe struggles to find its cool

chloesuedechainbag.jpgI was really rooting for Hannah MacGibbon to rock Chloe‘s world back to Pheobe Philo’s glory days but what I’m seeing lately is making me cringe! What is this thing?  Suede, studs and way too many chains going on.  It looks like macrame craft project gone bad. 

Delivery for this bag is not until September, so perhaps there is time to salvage this.  Let’s start with removing the studs (and this is from a stud addict)– it makes no sense whatsoever to have the two rows of studs there alongside all of that chain detail unless it’s removable and converts to a belt in which case it makes perfect sense (not).  The chains framing the studs need to go, too.  That leaves the actual chain that holds up the bag and the chain down the center.  Now you have a chic bag with chains.  But I have no idea when suede and chains became so expensive, the bag is 2,662 euro/$3,685USD!  What do you think?  Snob or slob?

  1. I COULD SEE THIS AS A FASHION MADONNA MAY HAVE HAD IN THE 80’S. I TRY TO SEE SOMETHING GOOD IN EVERY PURSE I CRITIC,THOUGH EVEN IF IT WAS LESS EXPENSIVE AND WAS THE 80’S ERA,I WOULD SEE IT A FAD THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOLD AT STRAWBERRY FIELDS, BODY SHOP,OR MAYBE IN THE LOCAL 5 AND DIME. A STATEMENT FOR THE DESIGNER,PERHAPS? AIMEE ROBINSON
