At this point, Neely & Chloe sells handbags, wallets, and footwear loafers and slippers all for under $300 on its own website and กระเป๋า แบรนด์ ของ แท้ in a pop-up store on Bleecker Street. The Burches are targeting the sort of woman in her early 20s to mid-30s who's over buying trendy bags at Zara that break within the month but whose salary doesn't yet accommodate designer purchases. With their focus on clean, restrained design, though, Neely and Chloe Burch hope to grab the eye of women their mother's age as well as teenagers. When my editor looked through the brand's website, she commented, "These are handbags that look like handbags." What she meant is thatthey're the purest distillation of what a bag looks like today.
