Chloé's Cult Bag Is Everywhere Right Now—I'm Really Tempted to Buy It

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. Thirteen years later, the accessories department at the French fashion house is still sending shoppers into a spin, and this season there's another new handbag that shoppers are clambering to get their hands on: the Chloé.

The shoulder bag is really elegant, as it has a wide leather strap, 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 square mini bags with a sturdy top handle strap, to a rectangular shoulder bag with a chain strap to an oversized 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 trends 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."

Style Notes: Chloé is the reason so many bags at the moment feature a gold circle handle or detailing, and the Nile was one of the key It bags of 2017, spotted on the likes of Eva Chen, Aimee Song and Solange Knowles.

5. The Faye

Style Notes: The '70s-inspired Faye bag with a circle clasp and chain detailing first showed in the house's S/S 15 show, and it since has been worn by every blogger we can think of. Years later, we're still obsessed. It's still worth investing in a Faye, as they've become a true classic.

6. The Drew

Style Notes: The Drew handbag is also a street style favourite, and it has an elegant round silhouette with a gold chain strap and clasp. Olivia Palermo has the two-tone yellow-and-rose style, while if you're after a more classic, long-lasting option, we recommend the black or tan versions.

Style Notes: The backpack spin of the Faye bag has been just as popular as the original, and it always sells out as soon as it becomes available.
