For some reason in the past week I've grown to like the Edith and have ordered a large Ivory

Cinderbellas.....my SA is getting tan and she said that is what Chloe are calling the whiskey colour....I would double check and what other colour could tan be? My SA said they are getting chocolate, washed out black (grey) and tan (whiskey)

has anyone seen the chloe ad with the tower o' handbags? the whiskey edith is on top (not a great picture, IMO) and there is a taupe paddington in the middle and I think a black betty squashed on the bottom? there is a bag (brown I think) in the middle that appears to have a long studded strap -- does anyone know what it is? sorry i can't post the ad -- I don't have a scanner. I think I saw it in US Elle. TIA!

this is the ad, right?

the bag looks like the betty.. but the strap might have been from this:
chloe.com

It really reminded me of the leather of an old professor's briefcase...it is a little bit wrinkly, thick and a little bit aged looking. The whiskey is divine.

Heres some pics of the black python betty bag on ebay.co.uk




(ebay.co.uk)

I have to say I like the python version more than the regular leather ones.

i know some of us don't care,but i find the mismatched hardware (gold/bronze and silver) on chloe bags really disconcerting...

$4900 according to 2 stores that are getting it in and keep in mind that that's for the small one! There's a medium and large Betty in the python as well.

I soooooo don't think that bag is worth it - these price increases are really starting to annoy me
