For her third runway collection for Chloé, Natacha Ramsay-Levi explored the notion of “Hippie Modernism,” by drawing from various influences that express radiant sensuality and bohemian free-spiritedness. The bags that accompany this range of ready-to-wear play out with similar individuality.
The Chloé C
As the newest addition to the lineup, the Chloé C bag debuts as an instant classic. Structured in shape, with a balance of masculine and feminine details, each version is defined by its decorative “C” signature hardware, which is centrally positioned atop a double contrast flap and a concealed mechanic closure. Either rectangular or square, it can be carried several ways: in hand, short on the shoulder, long on the shoulder and cross-body. In glossy lambskin and smooth calfskin, the bag is available in a range of familiar earth tones, from ceramic neutrals to terracotta, in addition to faded blues. Elsewhere, vivid green and gradient neon sunset shades on croc-embossed leather assert maximum impact.
After just one season, Tess has been embraced as a Chloé mainstay. Rounded in shape with a belt curving around its body, the construction reflects the DNA of the house, as does the dangling “O” hardware. The Tess is available in two sizes, each with a double strap connected to metal rings in mix of golden brass and silver finishing.
New seasonal variations include croc- embossed leather in cement pink, dark green and chestnut brown, as well as a leather patchwork in tones of caramel.
Timeless as ever, Marcie celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019. The iconic Chloé bag stands out for its saddle shape and decorative stitching, along with sinuous hardware and leather strips that extend from the zipper pull and body as added flourishes. The double-carry style features wrapped handles and a longer strap; whereas the single-strap satchel offers a more compact format. Pale beige, smoky blue, dark green and chestnut are among the new colour options, whether small grain calfskin, croc- embossed leather or in supple suede with leather braiding and tassels.
