My review of the Chloé Faye Mini Bag

Today, I would like to share a review of the Chloé Mini Faye leather shoulder bag in cement pink. I purchased this bag last year from Vestiaire Collective.

I am sure that you have already known the Chloé Faye bags and know how popular they are. This bag has got a beautiful design with the “piercing” ring loop and the attached chain.

I had been eyeing with Faye bags for a while, but I did not want to choose those ones which are made with the combination of calfskin and suede, because suede looks very delicate, easily gets dirty and more vulnerable to scratches than calfskin.

The Chloé Faye bags can be bought in different sizes, colours and fabric options. 

Finally, my choice fell on this pink calfskin mini bag, which is the smallest version, as the name suggests.

Dimensions

It  measures  W: 18 cm H: 10 cm D: 3,5 cm.

Details

The bag is made of smooth and pebble leather. It has got a snap flap closure with removable chain clip and goldtone hardware. The bag has a strong magnetic clasp which is very secure, although it can be a bit annoying when you are in a hurry and want to open it very fast. 3 card slots can be found inside. The length of the shoulder strap is adjustable.

Functionality

The mini bag is the smallest version of the Faye bag collection and honestly saying, if you are thinking about purchasing this size, I'd recommend you think it twice, because the interior space of this bag is relatively small.

As you can see, there are not much room in the bag. It fits a phone, a car key, some cash and a powder compact and that's all. If you open the bag there is just one compartment but it has got 3 small slip pockets. So, I must say that it is not practical at all, but the colour and design compensate me a little bit.

Quality

The quality of the materials are very high, the leather is excellent and the hardware is amazing. It has a weight to it, though the bag itself could be considered lightweight.

Price

This bag's original retail price was about 730 €, which is a reasonable amount of money for a designer bag, but presonally I think it is a bit expensive for such a small bag. However, as I bought my Faye bag from Vestiaire Collective as a pre-loved item, -though it has never been used-, I can say that it was worth that favourable price.

Conclusion

I really love this Faye bag, because of its beauty. Since it has a unique design, it is one of the most recognizable bags, that will surely make you stand out from the crowd. I love the beautiful calfskin and the rare cement pink colour. Its colour and design are fantastic, so it can be a chic crossbody bag either in spring or in summer.

What is a big disadvantage for me that the bag has a small interior capacity. Regarding functionality, it can be worn only as a crossbody.  When I purchased this bag, aesthetics was the most important factor for me, not practicality or functionality. My opinion is that its original retail price (730 €) was a bit high for such a tiny bag or WOC, but if you can get a preloved at up to 70 % off retail, it's definitely worth that money. Since the bag is very elegant and stylish, I will surely purchase a larger one, too.
