To come up with the black Chloe Small Tess bag, its designers drew inspiration from the design details of two iconic Chloe handbags. That’s how this bag ended up getting its rounded base from the Drew bag and its large ring-shaped fitments from the Faye bag. These ring fitments, by the way, are a distinctive feature of the Chloe Small Tess bag.
They are probably also the first thing you will notice about this bag — the brass rings with the shimmering gold and silver plating.
The bag’s long strap connects to its top edge with interlocked rings. Slightly below this, the short strap also attaches to the bag with rings. Not only that, but the front flap also has a large, striking ring fitment at the center, with the magnet closure beneath it. The black Chloe Small Tess bag also has a black leather band, highlighting the base’s round contours.
The overall effect of the band and rings is very stylish, especially against the bag’s shiny and suede calfskin.
But, that’s not all, the Chloe Small Tess bag has two removable straps, and you can adjust them as per your liking.
With the long strap, you can sling the bag about your shoulder or across your body. And the short strap has a comfortable grip for holding the bag.
It is not just a bag to take to a party, but it’s also perfect for everyday use. The spacious interior has a small flat pocket, and there is a larger one at the front. You should be able to fit in all your essentials, and, what's more, the bag’s cotton-lining will cushion them from impact.
On the days that you don’t need the Chloe Small Tess bag, you can store it in the dust bag that comes with it.
