Main Features of Chloe Faye
There are two main characteristics of the Faye bag, which make it stand out from the rest. It has a flat geometric shape and has a very distinctive ring with a chain attached at the front. The Faye bag comes in two sizes, small and medium. The smaller bag has a long shoulder strap and a rectangular shape; the larger one has a trapezoid shape.
Chloe Faye handbag stays close to the body, while its unique shape makes it unexpectedly spacious to carry all your personal belongings. It also has a magnetic closure and a detachable shoulder strap allowing you to carry the Faye as a crossbody bag. Both versions of the Chloe bag can also be used as clutches, adding even more versatility.
The exterior of the Chloe bag is made of high-quality calf leather, that is cut precisely and is hand-stitched to perfection. The smooth texture of the leather, its unique pattern and softness all make the Faye bag exquisite. The material is durable enough to last you decades even though the shape may fool you into thinking otherwise. It is also low maintenance and can be cleaned easily. The interior is made of suede calfskin that has been reversed polished and treated with water repellents to make the material more durable.
The most popular version of the Faye bag is made of smooth brown or mink calfskin with a suede flap. You can also find the bag in other variants such as all black leather, white, greyish leather with a python flap, snake print leather, haircalf and goatskin patchwork.
Is Faye Bag worth the hype?
So, should you invest your hard-earned cash on a Faye bag? I am going to go over the pros and cons of the Chloe Faye bag and let you decide for yourself.
- The Faye bag is a statement piece.
- The magnetic closure makes it super easy to open.
- It has a comfortable and adjustable shoulder strap allowing you to carry it conveniently.
- The Faye bag is much larger than it appears. There are several compartments inside the bag, but it still looks slim.
- Wearing it as a crossbody bag is not comfortable.
- The size may not be practical for some because it’s pretty expensive for something that barely holds anything.
- I believe the shape of the bag is not appealing; it might be one of those bags you get over quickly as trends change.
Chloe Nile Bag
Chloe seems to have mastered the formula of creating an “It” bag, season after season. One of the more recent “it” designer handbags is undoubtedly the Chloe Nile bag, also known as the bracelet bag. First, introduced at the runway show of spring/summer 2017, the Nile is the latest addition in Chloe’s string of hit designer bags.
The Nile is available in three different sizes; small, medium and miniature; which all have the Parisian chic vibe and classic equestrian allure.
- Small 7.9″ W x 4.7″ H x 2.4″ D
- Medium 9.6″ W x 8.3″ H x 3.5″ D
- Miniature 7.7″ W x 6.3″ H x 2.6″
Chloe Nile Price
|Nile Bag||Size||Prices in USD|
|Chloé Nile Bag||Minaudière||$1,450|
|Chloé Nile Bag||Small||$1,550|
|Chloé Nile Bag||Regular||$1,690|
What I like about the Nile
- It’s cute: It is a lovely bag which looks terrific with any outfit. The gold handle truly makes this bag unique, fun and chic. I am in love with the design and colours this bag offers.
- It can be worn in two ways: It can be worn as a crossbody and as a top handle, carrying the bag by the gold spheroid handle. The strap is removable, which makes it versatile.
- Short strap: Crossbody bags are my favourite because they free up my hands (so you can shop, drink coffee, browse your phone at the same time). It has straps that are simply too long for me, but the best part is that they are adjustable, and they don’t slip off your shoulders.
What I don’t like about the Nile
Size: All the sizes in this bag are pretty small, which can be a pro or a con at the same time. You cannot fit much into this bag, so it is only practical for formal events.
The front button: The front pin of the Nile is a magnet button that is not easy to open/close, making it less convenient.
The leather: The Nile gets scratched easily as the leather is not completely worn resistant.
