Egyptian-born, Parisian designer Gaby Aghioni modelled a niche after the lifestyles of her own friends in 1952. These were women who sought luxury fashion but did not have the time for bespoke couture fittings. This cued a capsule collection of chic and easy to style separates that were cut from body conscious fabrics and crafted in sleek silhouettes. This could be bought straight off the rack, a concept that was new to the luxury fashion scene in those times. Apart from being the first luxury prêt label, it was also the first heritage house to have a female Creative Director. With stalwarts like Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney having helmed Chloé, this brand is revered as a sartorial powerhouse.
Currently helmed by Gabriela Hearst, Chloé's bags are revered for their well-crafted essentials and refined statement pieces. Keeping in line with Chloé’s focus on true luxury, Hearst’s approach to fashion stirs up expectations of an interesting blend. She has a strong track record with leather goods, her top-handled, pouch-shaped Nina bag from Chloé bags collection being a swift seller right from the time it was first unveiled. Ironically and intriguingly, with Hearst’s early days at a ranch and Chloé bags’ signature equestrian detailing, this marriage between boho chic and heritage sensibilities is definitely one to watch out for.
Chloé’s collections were never designed to emblazon branding across the products. Especially with Chloé's designer bags collections, they have a minimal edge that has made the label a wardrobe staple for all fashion connoisseurs. With an independent attitude, Chloé bags collections contrast a soft Chloé allure with sharp modernity, as a mid-century French wardrobe meets touches of equestrian finery. Chloé C is the ‘It’ bag that has helped the label bag it’s cult status. Apart from this, bags like the Aby, the Tess Saddle, the Daria, the Woody, the Faye, the Edith and the Darryl are some of the most popular accessories in Chloé bags collection roster.
