Bag Crush: Chloe Paraty

Paraty3

One of the bags that I have admired for a long time is the Chloe Paraty. Though it looks odd, my bag crush began at first sight (on NAP, at least), way before anyone spotted carrying it could influence me. In a way, I like it the way it is, not because it’s something that Chloe came up with.

They’ve got the bag in several different colors and they all look decent, but personally I like the black leather and python best — it’s a showstopper! Plus points? Sturdy leather, two top handles which look quite comfortable to carry, shoulder strap with just the right length, gold hardware, piped trimmings and the fact that it’s structured.

Rachel Zoe rocking her black python Paraty. Python adds glamour and the extra edge to the bag.

The python Paraty doesn’t come cheap though, it’s on NAP for £1,936.96 (oh, how depressing!). It’s been in the market for a few years now, but even when it’s no longer being produced, I think the design can last any lady for more years to come.

    For real? I read people describing it as ‘lightweight’ on tPF – I thought that would be great! If it’s to the point of being unbearable, that sucks. Oh well…

    Yay we have the same bag crush 🙂 But that’s the thing about buying from online (especially blog) sites I guess 🙁

    I think it is a very lightweight bag compared to the other paratys. The leather is a bit heavy but the python is molded beautifully with soft leather not buffalo like the others. Quite an investment but i’ve used mine for years and its a ooddurable companion 🙂
