More than likely it's since been sold which is why they don't have anymore.

oh god, oh God...I wish I'd waited for one of the many bags I have my name down for to arrive before buying that Hermes blouse. Just learn from my mistake baglovers and do not let yourself be tempted into buying anything that is not on your bag wish list!!!! I can't look at any pictures of the Paddingtons now without feeling sick and full of regret. Most unhappy Grill

Hi,

does anyone here own a tan paddington or seen one up close ? I can't decide between brown or tan, I saw a picture of a tan paddington from the chloe website, which looked really nice, but I have also seen a picture from luisaviaroma where the colour looked totally different, almost orange ! any help would be appreciated

Hi,

I saw the Tan Paddington color recently at a Chloe trunk show - I'd say it's closer to the color on the Chloe website, maybe a little darker.

It's nowhere near as orange as it looks on luisaviaroma. It was a really pretty color in person.

I've decided I must have it in cream but it seems impossible unless I buy it off eBay for double the price. ugh. what's the deal with luisaviaroma? how is it they have so many? has anyone actually bought anything from them? it really doesn't matter since they aren't carrying the cream.

and has anyone seen the xtra large -- is it really huge?

boboman, I haven't seen any of the bags in person but from the pics in neiman's chloe book the tan looks a little orange -- more like a saddle. it's nice but the dark brown (marron) is truly breathtaking.

i think the large would be too big.... looking at the pics on the arms of the models.... i think medium is just right.

vintage princess - what are the dimensions of your medium paddington? I'm debating between a large and a medium and haven't seen pictures of the medium on a model.. . . Also, where on style.com is the picture of the large bag?

I think the large paddington is comparable to the large silverado (about 18" across). pretty big but I like big bags. I'm pretty sure the size used in the ads is medium (about 15" across) -- it's the most popular and more of a handbag than a tote.


speaking of the ads, is it any coincidence the models all look like sienna?

Sorry I dont have a measuring tape on me right now - but the medium is bigger than I thought it would be, its approx 14" or 15" wide. The size they use in the ads is medium as well.

well, i pulled the trigger and put down my credit card number for the medium dark brown paddington at NM. IT's supposed to come this month. I am COMPLETELY excited, but I'm a little worried about how comfortable the bag will be to use...

net-a-porter sucks! I had a paddington in my basket but I couldn't check out. I tried for nearly an hour and of course by the time I could access my basket the bag had sold out. and you can bet that many of the people who snapped them up will be selling them on eBay for double the price. grrrr!
