See by Chloe has been a little inconsistent in the past few seasons, but I'm more than willing to overlook that if the label keeps putting out great bags like this Carmen shoulder bag. It's got a streamlined ladylike aesthetic that is hip but versatile.
The purple ostrich effect leather on the Carmen is a real winner. Most ostrich embossing doesn't end up looking very realistic, but this one does despite the almost overwhelming color. Speaking of the color, I find it very refreshing in a world of neons and neutrals. It's got an instantly eye-catching pop, but is still a little subdued. In that way, it's a very true lilac hue.
The shape of the Carmen is really ideal. It's got a retro feminine aesthetic that will work with a lot of different styles because the color keeps it looking so modern. The antiqued gold clasp reminds you that this is definitely an old-fashioned design, but without looking stuffy or prissy.
At around $550, the Carmen is a pretty in purple addition to the See by Chloe line.
