The Chloe Drew shoulder bag has turned into one of the hottest bags of the year. The mini size, and small size, have taken the street by storm. The Chloe Drew is being spotted on everyone from magazine editors to celebrities to style bloggers to socialites, and more!
There is a lot going for the Chloe Drew, which is what makes it so popular. This beautiful handbag is made from soft, pebbled leather (Chloe has also made versions in suede and exotic skins), which is strong and high quality. The interior of the handbag is a luxurious suede which is soft yet sturdy. Chloe is known for their exquisite construction, and the Drew is no exception. The Chloe Drew offers even stitching, perfect shape, and the highest end hardware in the handbag market.
At less than $2000 for most styles, the Chloe Drew is also within financial grasp of many Fashionistas. Not that $2000 is affordable by any means, it is considered high-end luxury, but with many designers in the same space as Chloe selling bags for upwards of $5000, the Drew is attractively priced for the market it targets.
The popularity of the Chloe Drew handbag also can be attributed to the current trend towards everything influenced by the 1970’s. The 70’s are a big influence in fashion today, and since the flap style shoulder bag is very of-the-moment, the Chloe Drew fits right into this handbag trend. What sets the Chloe Drew apart from other classic, flap-style shoulder bags is the unique twist and lock clasp, simple yet elegant chain strap, and the connectors that go with it.
The Chloe Drew shoulder bag is currently shown in a mini size, small size, and medium size. I purchased the small size because it can fit my sunglasses case; which is mission-critical! In addition to my sunglasses case, my Chloe Drew can fit my wallet, lipstick, keys, and iPhone with a small space left-over for incidental items my kids tend to hand me when we are out. Kids are good at finding things for parents to hold. 😉
Weight can sometimes be an issue with well-made, luxury handbags which feature a lot of hardware. This is not the case with the small Chloe Drew. It is lightweight and does not pull down on my shoulder. Love that!
The clasp on the Chloe Drew is a new style for me. It features an attached rod which acts like a key. This can be inserted into the clasp and turned in order to lock the handbag shut. I have also found it is easier to just twist the closure with my hand and leave the key dangling. Either method of locking is easy and effective.
I am in love with my Chloe Drew! I wish I had a money tree in my backyard so that I could purchase this beautiful bag in more colors and styles. I have my eye on this suede version for fall.
Mini: 7″ x 7.9″ x 2.8″
Small: 8.3″ x 9.3″ x 3.2″
Medium: 8″ x 11.5″ x 4″
The Chloe Drew handbag is practical, beautiful, well-made, and luxurious. The flap closure is a classic design, yet still on trend with the current 1970’s styles featured on the runways. I rate the Chloe Drew handbag five out of five stars!
