Chloe Elsie bags are not new. Yet with the latest new season additions of new colours and fabrics the bags became more desirable than ever before. And while it is hard to compete with the famous Chloe Paddington, I can see this range sticking around the IT-bag category for a while.
My favourite is by far a black python shoulder bag retailing at £1500 (left on the picture). It is absolutely timeless and the rose gold hardware, which is currently used by many hot designers is to die for. Yet if you prefer a more colourful bags to suit the seasons obsession with colour, there are various multicoloured version of python material available – reds, greens, blues – it is all up to you.
And of course if you prefer a day bag that fits all your essentials and more you can opt for a classic satchel which retains the elaborate Elsie closure and comes in 3 sizes and retails for £790-880 (right on the picture).
If we can take celebrity following as an indicator of the success of the bag, here are a few names that have been seen carrying an Elsie on more than one occasion: Leighton Meester, Sienna Miller, Kelly Rowland and Olivia Palermo. I don’t know how about you but I am convinced Elsie is hot and deserves a place on my fashion wish list!

And it is not just a high street bag that looks like an It bag, it is an It bag in its own right. This Zara Shopper made a big entrance this summer – simple and spacious it attracted a big following straight away, including Olivia Palermo who has a few in different colours. (Olivia Palermo is my ultimate style crush especially as she is not afraid to add some high street into her outfit. Love it and do it!)
And now the bag is back on sale in a more wintery hue. Get a leather one in brown, black or petrol blue, or try a leather and felt mix in grey and black. Starting from £79.99 this is probably the cheapest It bag you can get your hands on, as yet the quality will not make you regret your decision. And if you have your heart set on it, hurry up, it will not be around for long (the black crocodile print bag is already sold out)!
