The Relaunch of the Paddington

All the rich and fashionables rejoice! The Spring/Summer 05 'it' bag, THE Chloe Paddington, will be relaunched in three different colors for the Fall/Winter 05 season.

The Chloe Paddington is this season's all-hailed bag. It's become such a cult sensational item that if you see someone carrying it, then that someone must be truly significant, or a mega client of Chloe, because this fabulous bag had been sold out since... well, since it hit the stores.

Let's be honest, most of you probably haven't even seen the bag in real life before, let alone touch it. It actually sounds like some kind of mystical holy thing that only those blessed (with money and connections,) are able to trot them around. In some ways it is true. A Chloe saleslady had told Barneys Girl's disappointed mum that each Chloe boutique only stocked up to SIX Paddingtons! And obviously, it was an item that would not be restocked. Heck, even I have only just very recently seen the bag -a woman was carrying it in the lift after work.

Following this amazing sucess, Chloe is relaunching the bag in three new colors for next season: red, chocolate brown and khaki. Available at US$1380 or 762 pounds.

It is amazing that Chloe is not raising its price, considering that demand is high and supply is low. *Gasp* Could it be the people at Chloe had decided to not exploit the laws of supply and demand and did not increase prices? I don't know if I should call them kind or dumb.

Paddingtons, although still look super fantastic and beautiful, is starting to loose their to-die-for appeal on me. Maybe gushing over them over this post and staring at the images too long is making me feel jaded towards them. I'm sure I'll feel better about them tomorrow.

Let's just hope I actually get to see the new Paddingtons in real life this time.

The chocolate brown is gorgeous. I'm not crazy about the red, it's lipstick-y tacky no?

the huge padlock ruins it, imo...so someone at chloe says, i bet i could make an ordinary-looking bag and put a big ugly padlock on it, and people would stand in line to pay 1400 bucks for it...and they all say, you're on! this is a joke people, like cabbage patch kids and beanie babies, totally ugly and worthless, but the must-have item! the emperor has no clothes...

Anonymous: Birkenstocks were kind of popular like two years ago, mostly because a few celebs wore them. But to be honest, I wouldn't buy them. They completely out of fashion now and you could use that money to buy another type of sandals instead.

I LOVE the Paddington bag, however I don't think I will be able to afford it in at least another 10 years! BUT--The good news is while I was doing some "window shopping" last week, I came upon this site http://www.deja-hoo.com , they have a non-designer version of the paddington for sale. Well that day I ended up NOT window shopping but actuall shopping - for once! Now I am saving up some money for my next target, the spy bag!
