Chloe Handbags: Gorgeous!

Updated on June 28, 2008

Chloe makes, quite possibly, the most luxuriously feminine handbags in the fashion world. The company was formed in Paris in the mid 1950s by Egyptian designer Gaby Aghion. The woman singlehandedly revolutionized the fashion industry, by offering pret a porter clothing - Chloe was the first company to do this.

The company was bought out in the 1980s, but they are still producing my favorite handbags. The colors, the materials, the designs, the everything - smooth like butter, and then some. I'll take all of them, thank you!

Chloe Bay Patent Hobo

Alright, I don't usually get girlie over fashion, but omigod, omigod, omigod I want this bag, in this color, in this style, in my hand asap! I love everything about this handbag.

Double shoulder strap (and such lovely shoulder straps they are!), magnetic closure, perfect for all occasions. Fantastic with jeans, obviously, but the material gives a sophisticated edge, and you could pull it off with something sleek if your accessories were understated. Have I mentioned I love this bag?

Cost: $1760

Chloe Ascot Tote

I love the two-tone coloring of this bag. The Chloe Ascot Tote has an elegant, creamy exterior which looks very first class - combined with those hip and trendy accents that give it a youngish, mod appeal. This isn't your mother's handbag, but she might be tempted to borrow it every now and then.

Cost: $1875

Chloe Jaded Bracelet Bag

Hello? How cute is this bag? I'm thinking very. As the name suggests, the Chloe Jaded Bracelet Bag slips over the wrist and will make you look fashionably trendy, elegant, sexy, and a number of other adjectives you would love to be referred to as.

It comes in other colors, but the Jaded style is really the prettiest, in my opinion. And the beads are beautiful!

Cost: $1095

Chloe Paddington Satchel

This is a very popular line at the moment, and while I do think they look lovely, I am undecided about the great big padlock sitting on the front flap. Of all the models, this is my fave. There is actually a Victoria Beckham version; tiny, compressed, painfully thin. Not really hard to figure out the inspiration. That said, I do like this one, and I do love the understated coloring.

Cost: $1995

Chloe Pebble Kerala Tote

I've included this for those of you who really love the great big mama bags. I'm not usually keen on them, but this one will certainly do. The leather quality is excellent (definitely has that buttery thing going on!) and the dark color makes it great for anything from high powered lawyer purse, to cheeky bomenienne.

Cost: $1225

      Zuz - I wish I had one of them, too!! All I can do is tempt myself with these pics. ;)

      Stacie - LOL! It might be worth it for one of these! ;)

      Kenny - I didn't know Kerala was the name of a place! Sorry to hear you don't like it.. we'll have to find you a different man purse. ;)

      Ah, tempting the women again, Isabella? I love the Ascot Tote for its looks. Though named after the place I was born in, the Kerala is not looking hip. I'm patriotic, but not that much! :)

      I love these bags. But, between the bags I already have, my ridiculous amount of books, and my collection of scarves...if I start a bag collection, I'll have to sleep in the bathtub.

      Isabella! I have only one comment for you , shame on you, it is not nice to tempt sooooo with these hubs of yours. I have a weakness for handbags.

      awesome but unfortunately too rich for my blood collection (now if you wanted to send me one, I choose the Paddington Satchel too)
