Does this duffle shaped handbag look familiar to you? If not, it’ll be the distinguishable padlock that’ll give this bags designer name away. In case you’re still stumped, this is a fresh top handle design by the House of Chloé. The Chloé Paddington is one of those past “It” bag that we can’t really see making a comeback anytime soon, but the Aurore Top Handle leather bag looks like a classier improvement to the Paddington that can withstand the time of fashion.
For one, we have a far more comfortable piece here. With a simple alteration of the oversized metal padlock to the more fun-sized version that’s found on this satchel, Chloé not only conserves its consumers from back problems or injuries to the crook of the arm, but also allows this investment to be a reasonable fit for everyday wear. Smooth leather with a few amounts of metal accents keeps this look minimal yet eye-catching.
Last month, I wrote about Rachel Bilson and her gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Studded Bow Bag (read the post here). A super hot item since its release last Fall, the bag looked simply stunning dangling from Rachel’s shoulder. Unfortunately, this must-have style was completely sold out at the time of my post. What a shame! But guess what… the 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Studded Bow Bag is back in stock over at Net-A-Porter! How exciting is that?
Rachel Bilson was recently spotted outside the Dragonfly DuLou boutique in Los Angeles. For her little shopping trip, Bilson wore a navy top with an ink-blot pattern and black tuxedo pants. And hanging from her shoulder was her 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Studded Bow Bag! From the Fall 2009 Collection, the Edie Studded Bow Bag was one hot item last year. And it appears to be one of Bilson’s favorites, as she has been photographed carrying it on several occasions. The bag features a bow-shaped flap front with metal mesh in the center. The gold-tone, cone-shaped studs give this bag a hard-edge feel that would compliment an urban look, whether it be day or night. I love the double-stranded strap. Plus the wider panel at the top of the strap looks like it would make this bag super comfortable to carry. Such a gorgeous bag! It’s no wonder it was on everyone’s wish list!
Unfortunately, at this time the 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Studded Bow Bag has sold out on sites such as Net-A-Porter. But you can check out all the great deals eBay has to offer on 3.1 Phillip Lim handbags!
