The leather is thick and roughly grained. It just gets better the more you use it. This one is very battered but just looks more gorgeous every day.
This bag has 2 rolled top handles, top zip closure, patent black zipper pulls, 4 leather covered metal feet on the base of the bag, 2 large exterior pockets with top magnetic snap closures (these hold A4 size) and several front pockets with flap push-through closures. There are several pockets and pouches inside.
The only con is that it is very heavy. All the pros make it well worthwhile – it is actually better designed than the Mulberry Roxanne, which explains its much higher price tag.
Regarding pockets it has an A4 pocket on each side of the bag and slit pockets and flap pockets on the front, plus several pockets and pouches inside. If you like to secrete your goodies in different pockets – this is the bag for you!
Designed by Phoebe Philo, it really reflects the glory days of Chloe handbags. Comes from the same era as the Paddington and the Silverado. The nice thing about this bag is that the only clue to the designer is the ‘Chloé’ written on the front flap closure.
