Chloe Loaf - Craie or Sable

  1. Today is a good example of why we handbag girls shouldn't have a day off. I was doing my daily check on Chloe bags posted to eBay and came across this

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140105850242

    I almost fainted because not only was it a loaf, it was what I thought was a craie loaf. Now, I had just been lucky enough several days ago to list a want it now ad on eBay and acquired a gorgeous yummy craie loaf (I think it was destiny or the gods or something because I have been wanting a craie or sable forever and this Saturday is my birthday). The craie loaf I bought, said craie on the tag. Now several days later another craie appears or so I thought. I started emailing the seller about the color, and she kept saying it was calcaire. I kept saying you must mean craie, then she posted a close up of the tag and sure enough it said calcaire (2005). Then D&G was kind enough to mention that her sable didn't have a sable tag and possibly this bag was sable. The colors are close and hard to distinguish in pictures. So I asked if the person would consider a buy it now, hoping they might post it for a couple hundred more. Before I knew it the BIN was attached at the original retail of $1540 and thinking it could possibly be sable I jumped on it. In retrospect I probably should have just bid it out, because I know $1540 is high and it may not have gotten there from $1100. Anyway.. Didn't have time to go through the authenticate process (a definite no no) I never do that. But I saw that Nordstrom's receipt, that loaf and that color name and just went nuts.

    So I really need all of your help now. First does the bag look authentic, that is most important. I did pay using my credit card on paypal so I have so backup just in case. The second biggest question is, does anyone have a Chloe sable bag and if so what does the tag say regarding style and color. Third, has anyone seen calcaire on a Chloe tag from 2005?
     
  2. Hi The bag looks authentic to me. However I have never known Chloe to do a Calcaire. That is a Balenciaga colour. Perhaps that is the name that the store put on the ticket as from the pics it seems to be a store price tag with the colour printed on not on the actual Chloe tag. Sometimes stores do put their own names on colours. This bag does not look like sable to me at all. The sable has definite pink tones which I am not picking up from the pics.
     
  3. did you pay for it already?

    Maybe you can resell it.. there are PLENTY of gals dying for a craie paddy :graucho:
     
  4. I did pay for it already, so I'm at least very happy to know that its authentic. I agree with Roz, I went and looked at pictures that TPF member Audrey posted showing sable and craie side by side and the sable was much more muted pink. I think its craie. Plus the calcaire (balanciaga color) could easily have been picked up at Nordstrom instead of the Chloe craie, both mean chalk from what I could determine on the french translation. I'm sure if I wind up with 2 craie loafs someone will help me out. I know there are alot of PF members looking for this combination.
