We’ve had our eyes on the coveted Chloé Faye Bag for a while now and face pangs of jealousy every time we spot it dangling discreetly over someone else’s shoulder. It’s undeniably the ‘it’ bag of the moment, the only problem is it costs more than our monthly rent…
A firm favourite amongst the fashion set (we’re talking everyone from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Suki Waterhouse) since it debuted on the catwalk of Chloé’s spring/summer 2015 show, it’s pretty low key and understated – but that’s why we love it. There’s a bit of a theme going on with designer bags, they’re now far more inconspicuous and don’t so much as advertise the fact they’re expensive with branding or logos, meaning high street replicas are looking more and more like the real deal.
With its cool seventies vibe, this sought after bag has never been more accessible as we’ve found a high street version that’s a very small fraction of the cost (£7, to be exact).
With a distinct metal loop and chain similar to Chloé’s, Primark offers up a close match. We adore the extra tassel detailing as it gives it a hint of a festival vibe, too. Add it to your summer wardrobe pronto, as we’re pretty sure it’ll be gone fast!
