All told, I think that the See by Chloe line is one of the most exciting out there. Fashionistas love it for the quirky, cutting edge style and lower than usual designer prices. But it seems like this season the label's a little off. Every bag I've seen has been cool, but the tiniest bit over-designed. Unfortunately, this Ring Around shoulder bag isn't an exception.
The muted teal color of the leather on the Ring Around is very of-the-moment. Pastels are coming back, and this soft green blue is a really nice one. I love the broken-in texture and the reinforced seaming. I also really dig how the logo has been embossed subtly into the strap instead of displayed prominently.
The shape of the Ring Around is really unusual. It's like a squared-off hobo. It has all the slouch of a hobo with none of the drawbacks. It looks neat and cohesive, and the flat bottom is better for keeping you organized than a rounded off base might be. My problem is with the weird addition of the bangle details on the sides. I don't really think they add anything interesting to the design, and they certainly take away from its simplicity.
For $480, the Ring Around is well priced, but the tacky plastic beads just kill it for me. Chloe really had a good thing going on here; it just didn't know when to stop.
