The ELVIRE... do we like it??


May 3, 2006
Got a close look at the new collection at Chloe today... and the Elvire certainly stood out as something totally different from everything else! I really like the sturdy leather, the unique design and i think the leather studs are adorable, but I'm not sure if it's really practical as a handbag... What do you girls think??

PS. I also loved the new Bays!! There's this mini Bay with a shoulder strap :nuts: cute cute cute!!

Funky and strange yet totally endearing all the same! I love the quirkiness. It doesn't look like just any other bag. I won't buy it over the chain Capsule, though. Wait - what am I talking about BUYING anything. HELP!!!

First impression - nah... I don't like it. But we'll see.
I had the same first impression when I laid eyes on Chloe paddy!:P But look what has that "I don't like it" done to me now? I love paddy to pieces!:heart::yahoo:I'm a Gemini, meet my paddy-loving-twin!!:wlae:

I bought this bag in black and I really like it. It's a bit edgier than the paddington, which I like. The leather is gorgeous IMO. I am on business in NJ right now but will post pics when I get home to CA next week.

Long story which I'll try to keep short, I had gris-vert that was defective and then destroyed when sent out by the Chloe store for repair. I was devasted to say the least. I was offered a credit but did not see anything at the time that really wowed me. I love paddy's but really prefer the silver hardware to the brass and there wasn't any thing else available that I really wanted.

At the time, I got to look at the sketches and pics for A/W 07. I am not a fan of the Bay and the only bags that really captured my eye were the elvire and the paddington capsule. I also really liked the grey color of my paddy and was not too crazy about the swatches I saw. I went to SCP 2 weeks ago and the elvire was there in black. I really liked it but I'm holding out to use it until the elephant color comes in as I may exchange it. The swatch looked more grey than the paddy capsule and regular paddy in this color. The elephant is up on lvr but still tough to tell. IMO it looks more tan which I don't need right now.

Stay tuned for pics...
