Gender Bender #13
Chloé Saskia Sheepskin Satchel Bag
Chloé is a brand that has been associated with girlish charms. Their Paddington bag which features a giant lock has been seen on the arms of many celebrities and chic women around the world. It has since capture the attention and eye of many ladies and as well as...some men. It could be a very very distant future that Chloé will come up with a men's collection. So for guys who want a piece of Chloé now, bags will be the best bet. I have been scouring online to find bags by Chloé that could pass off for use by guys...but never been able to, that is until now.
This Chloé Saskia Sheepskin Satchel is pretty unisex looking, with a nice stone colour and front flap pockets. Nothing overly girlish adorns the exterior of the bag, except maybe the oversize round brass zipper pull. But seriously, I do not mind that. The unique design of pockets and how the bag is proportioned pretty much makes up for this slight 'imperfection'. The bag is of a flight bag style, with a top zipper opening and a full leather shoulder strap. Size is 15"W X 9"H X 4"D, not too bad for a male physique. This bag looks great in my books and I do not think carrying it will erode any masculinity out of any fashion forward men.
