Chloé has a habit of creating cult handbags. It all started in 2005 with the slouchy Paddington featuring a gold padlock. In fact, you could say that the epic waiting list it caused was one of the triggering factors behind It bags even becoming a thing in the first place. Fifteen years later, the accessories department at the French fashion house is still sending shoppers into a spin.
One of the biggest bags of past couple of years is the Chloé C bag. The shoulder bag is really elegant, as it has a wide leather strap and a delicate C logo on the clasp and comes in beautiful colours, such as dusty blue, rich chocolate, and even a vibrant tie-dye effect. There are several different silhouettes, such as a square mini bag with a sturdy top-handle strap, a rectangular shoulder bag with a chain strap and an oversize shoulder bag.
This bag was always destined for cult status. Elizabeth von der Goltz, global buying director at Net-a-Porter, said in her 2019 trend presentation, “Chloé‘s Chloé Bag we have backed with around 20 options for both cruise and runway totalling to around 3000 units and making up 80% of our total Chloé bag buy.”
