I call myself more of a design person rather than a brands person.So this time, when I was just going about my window shopping spree in a bags & shoe store, I was struck by the beauty & craftsmanship of two very attractive handbags which were truly unique in design, style & creativity. Little did I know that these were Chloe inspired designer bags or what we would commonly call as replicas but which had been superbly crafted to look as good & fine as the original pieces. Within minutes I was the proud owner of these beauties already working out details of how I would style them.These were straight from Chloe Spring/Summer 2017 Bag Collection. Chloe introduced their newest design this season, which is the Nile Bag. First seen in the Spring/Summer 2017 runway show, the Nile features gold ring bracelet handle and comes in three sizes – Small Minaudiere, Small and Medium Crossbody. I opted for the small Minaudiere in off-white color because of its small, cute size with little gold detailing & the interesting & unusual bracelet handle (I definitely have a thing for small bags)! I know I will be treasuring this till eternity…..
