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 epic waiting list was one of the triggering factors behind It bags even becoming It bags in the first place. 13 years later, the accessories department at the French fashion house is still sending shoppers into a spin, as this season, there's another new handbag that shoppers are clambering to get their hands on.
At the designer's Paris Fashion Week show last March, the front row was flooded with the Nile, a small crossbody saddlebag with a gold bracelet-style handle. The bag quickly sold out on MyTheresa.com, MatchesFashion.com and Chloé's own site. So which bag is this season's answer to the Nile? Scroll to see and shop the other key Chloé bags you'll be seeing in every street style gallery.
1. Drew Bijou
2. The Pixie
Style Notes: The Pixie bag was introduced in the A/W 17 collection, and the circular suede bag was a street style hit at Paris Fashion Week in September.
3. The Nile
Style Notes: Chloé is the reason so many bags at the moment feature a gold circle handle or detailing, and the Nile has been one of the key It bags of 2017, spotted on the likes of Eva Chen, Aimee Song and Solange Knowles.
4. 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. Two years later, we're still obsessed. It's still worth investing in a Faye, as they've become a true classic.
5. 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.
6. The Lexa
Style Notes: The Lexa satchel bag was released in winter 2016, and as you'd expect from a Clare Waight Keller design, it's '70s inspired and the perfect size for an everyday work bag. Our favourite colourway is the blue suede version with tan leather straps below.
7. Faye Backpack
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.
So what's your dream Chloé bag—are you a Faye girl or is the Drew more your speed?
