Gleam is the name

While the 80's saw the height of everything gold or metallic, from lurex to lame and from handbags to shoes all dusted up in the sparkly color, the hype returns back this millenium and grace your fall wardrobe with some of the best metallic bags to tote. Be it the formal yet elegant dinners or that glitzy parties and out clubbing at Zouk, metallic is the couleur du jour!

AND MY PICK IS .... Paddington Metallic Bag by Chloe

Why do I love it?

If you love Chloe and everything created by Phoebe Philo then you must, yes MUST love this bag which has gained the cult IT status ever since it was toted by fashionistas around the globe. From Lindsay Lohan to Sienna Miller, all have their hands on this piece of French chic. The iconic padlock that has been hanging on the bag ever since it was first introduced to the fashion world has always been identified as the identity of the bag. Don't be surprised if you need to fill in a waiting list to tote it ladies.

The larger the better ...

With large yet oversized bags are de rigeur of the coming season (akin to what oversized shades are to the current Spring/Summer trend), it is worth investing in the Chloe's Mettalic Paddington bag. It has all the spaces needed to store your Motorola D&G handphone, the PDA and that sensuosly Rouge lipstick by Chanel.

Take it anywhere you like ...

With this bag there's no need to change your bag to suit the occasion. May it be a summer break in Capri or walking on your heels to the office.

And what it'll gonna cost?

Hmm, the bag is approximately priced at RM10 000 and is available at Chloe boutiques. In Malaysia, Chloe bags and accessories are exclusively sold at Shuz, Suria KLCC and The Link Bag Bar in Singapore.
