Chloé sure knows how to fire up a bag lover’s heart. First we had the Faye, then came the Drew and in 2017 we have the Nile which I am pretty certain will be Chloé’s next big It bag if not – THE – It bag of the year. And once again Chloé has turned to its trusted saddle bag shape to combine both novelty and functionality by adding an equestrian-inspired brass bracelet that serves both as a decorative detail and functional top handle, depending on how you carry the bag. The Nile comes in three sizes: small (as seen in the picture below, price: $1.690), medium (price: $1.790) and a super cute macro sized minaudière clutch in a half-moon silhouette (price: $1.490). Due to the high demand most of the Nile styles and colors are currently either sold out or on backorder, so the Nile is pretty hard to come by these days – especially the small sized Nile in motty gray, Chloé’s signature taupe neutral color. Luckily, we found a few budget-friendly options if you don’t want to wait until this beauty of a bag comes back in stock or simply can’t afford the designer price tag.

Cesca Ring Handle Crossbody Handbag
Last but not least is this Chloé inspired crossbody bag by Cesca which looks a lot like the “Nile” without being a blatant knock-off design. The price tag of $29.99 isn’t too bad either.
