The renowned Chloe Paddington when launched in Spring/Summer ’05, had a queue equivalent to what Hermes have for the Birkin today. The bag made sales history for any range Chloe bags that ever existed even the last launched Chloe Marcie leather bag couldn’t achieve the benchmark that the Paddington has set.

The Paddington has definitely superseded all those other bags, which were once the it-bag. Such as the Balenciaga Lariat, the Fendi Baguette, or Gucci’s Jackie bag which had definitely caused a stir in their days, but were somewhat accessible – even if you had to pull a some magic to get one. However, not so for Chloe. This bag has sold out before a single one has made it to the boutique’s shelves.

Well, every “IT” bag would have their glorious days, unfortunately within the rapidly change of trends and consumers’ taste in the Fashion industry – one day you are in, the next you are out ideology. The fate of this beautiful bag has came to be like “the once  it-bag” as mentioned above. Still a classic but its another bag kinda mentality.

Thou the practicality of the padlock on the 14″ handbag is questionable, it adds extra weight to an already pretty heavy bag. The zips on both sides are quite thick and not that easy to operate, especially when you’re carrying it on your shoulder.

Never the less,the Paddington is undoubtedly the perfect bag for girls who like the worn-in, slouchy look, perfect for a day at work and which one is not to keen on dressing up.

Outfit for the day.

The “IT” place

The refurbished KPO aka ‘Killiney Post Office’ reopened in September 2009. A Street across my workplace, stands this nostalgic looking post office building intertwined with a modern structural design of glass wall pane and steel architecture BBAR & restaurant on the other side.

The two-storey structure feels like a modern home, with comfy sofas strategically placed at the corners, with a greenhouse on the second floor to relieve humidity discomfort from the Singapore weather. interior deco’s pretty stylish however, i would have to say its pretty squeezey in there – if you don’t fancy your bum brushing onto someone’s else, i would clearly recommend you to stay out of this place during Friday and weekends evening. it can get really crowded in there. Distance between one other can be a little too close for comfort.

The place house sophisticated yuppies, party queens and for those who wants to be seen. Cauasian crowd’s usually fills half the population.
