Chloe-Drew-Bag-Beauty-Look

When I think of the Chloé Drew Bag, I think of two people: Olivia Palermo and Chiara Ferragni.

Now that Pre-Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to arrive and Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to become available, I bet that many of you have some shopping lists in your heads.

Chloe Spring 2015 Handbags

That Chloé Spring 2015 has almost convinced me to try out the luxe-bohemian look is as ardent an endorsement of a collection as you’ll ever hear. I’m a black-wearing, combat-boot-loving former punk, but when transformed through Clare Waight Keller’s lens, the haute hippie look seems like the most casually luxurious thing in the world.

Alessandra Ambrosio Chloe Clare Python Shoulder Bag

Here’s Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, shopping with her daughter Aja in Santa Monica and carrying a chic Chloé Clare Python Shoulder Bag. No one can rock a pair of totally destroyed cut-off shorts with a designer handbag quite like Alessandra.

Jessica Alba Chloe Baylee Bag
