See by Chloe Hilo Shoulder Bag

See by Chloe Hilo Shoulder BagChloe takes its styling to the Wild West with this Hilo shoulder bag.

The Hilo has the feminine features we expect from the label’s See by Chloe diffusion label, but the burnished brown leather tempers them. Frankly I feel some of the details, like the perforated trim and kiltie accents, get lost in the dark skin. Anyone who thinks Chloe’s usual styling is too fussy might appreciate that effect, but I think we lose a lot of what’s special about the Hilo. From a distance it seems like a fairly drab, very ordinary pouch.

The Hilo’s a decent size but it is narrow, so it’ll require some careful packing to hold everything you need on a day out. I appreciate the length of the shoulder strap, but it’s a bit narrow for my taste. Some extra inches would have added comfort without diminishing the style.

The luscious lambskin and attention to detail are probably worth the $495 Chloe’s asking, but I’m still not convinced. Fans of Western style might see something special here, but I’ve seen better from the Chloe stable.
