1. I was curious too. Just got the teal Nile in the mail and I'm excited to start carrying it.
  2. Please report back to let us know how it wears. I'm considering the python Nile, but am afraid that it will wear horribly.
  3. Hi, I have the caramel nile minaudiere for about two months now and it still looks good! My issue with the bag is with the alphabet charm on the bottom (i think only the minaudiere's have it) because it kept falling off the first couple times I used it. I went to the Chloe boutique in South coast just to see if my lock was defective but it's just how the bag's made. My SA suggested to just put the charm by the straps and it's been staying put since!

  4. IMG_3526.JPG IMG_3525.JPG My Nile bag - bought directly from Chloe 6 weeks ago, worn maybe 7 times....
  5. I contacted Chloe and they did send me back the following:

    We kindly remind you that maison Chloé is unable to repair the following: holes, stains, scratches, or general wear-and-tear.

    I will show the bag In-Store next week, but at the moment it seems to be the last item I've ever purchased with Chloe, even though I love their designs!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. You saved me over $2500 on the python Nile. I'll stick with Hermes from now on.
  7. I called them today amd they told me on the phone that I could get it repaired with them.
    So I'll send it back to Italy next week and then let you know how it turned out...
    Maybe their customer service is better than shown till now.

  8. That's why I don't like those lighter colored bags, every little stupid thing shows. Go with black, so much more classic and beautiful with the hardware contrast.

  9. Here's my nile after two months. I try to store it with the handle on the back. My SA pointed out that the caramel color (for the minauidiere but not the small) has a pebbled texture so it's less sensitive to wear.

  10. I just shared this on another thread, but here it is again:
    Just wanted to share how I store my beautiful Nile. I remove the straps and roll it up and leave it inside the purse. Then I place an old baby washcloth (they are smaller and softer) on the backside to provide a cushion for the metal ring to rest on. And then it gets tucked into its dustbag.

  11. This morning I got the written confirmation by Chloe, that they are going to refund me.
    I will go and probably get a darker one or the Pixie, where the golden handles are attached on both sides and won´t scratch over the leather when wearing cross-body.....
  12. It's nice that they're refunding you, but a fix for the bag would've been even better. They've basically admitted that their bags are defective. I ended up passing on the Nile and bought a small Hermes halzan instead.
  13. Which one did you get? As I really like Hermes in terms of quality I totally understand your decision.
  14. Hello :smile:
    My experience here https://forum.purseblog.com/threads/biscotti-nile-minaudiere.964796/
    with the strap screws issue (kindly scroll down in that thread to read about it). I didnt go to the Botique though as i was prego and was very busy to do anything about it
    I still love it very much though but i carried it 4 times max and still didnt get a chance to carry it again after the baby's arrival :smile:
