In 2002, Chloe released its first line of bags and began the “It Bag” craze with its much-loved Paddington. Fast forward 12 years, and the brand has continued to evolve, releasing a number of highly coveted bags in those intervening years.
Chloé Handbags and Purses(Page 2)
As much as we love bags around here (and as you might guess, we love them a lot), an accessory is nothing without an outfit to back it up. In our new Get the Look series, we’ll be looking at how stars style their bags to get some inspiration for putting things together from our own closets, starting with Reese Witherspoon and her Chloe Paraty Bag.
Hanneli Mustaparta was recently spotted taking a leisurely stroll with friends in NYC with a Chloe Baylee Bag in tow. Hanneli is an extremely well rounded fashion type: she’s a blogger, street style star, occasional Vogue contributor and former model. (And yet I still find this outfit…most curious.) Her beautiful, behind-the-scenes fashion blog Hanneli is what hastened her transition from cover girl to fashion commentator.
Here’s pop star Lorde, shopping at Rag & Bone and Free People in West Hollywood with new celeb pal/fellow pop star Taylor Swift. As you can see she’s paired a navy and white Chloe Baylee Bag with a black sweater, a textured skirt, oddly prominent Nike socks and an imposing pair of oxfords with ridiculously thick soles.
Here’s newlywed Kate Bosworth with her fresh new hubs, movie director Michael Polish, returning to Los Angeles from their Montana wedding over the weekend. (Kate’s outfit totally says “Montanta chic”…if there is such a thing. Montanans? Fill us in.) Kate’s carrying a Chloe Baylee Bag, the latest design from Chloe to catch the attention of a myriad of celebrities.
Beginning in the days of the famous Paddington and Silverado bags, Chloe has carved itself out an interesting little niche in the handbag business. In that time, three different creative heads, all female, have been at the reins of the brand, and they’ve all overseen the creation of bag after bag that fits perfectly into the ideas that so many women have about what they want to carry on a casual day.
Here’s a laid-back Alyson Hannigan, enjoying some down time with her husband Alexis Denisof in LA. (Alexis is a popular character actor you may recognize from How I Met Your Mother, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, perhaps?) Her beige bag is the Chloe Lucy Bag, which debuted on Chloe’s Fall 2012 runway.
Here’s actress/ballroom dancer Julianne Hough, exiting a party for Paper Denim & Cloth in LA with her creamy snakeskin Chloe Sally Bag. You can get a similarly snazzy “lizard skin” version of this bag at FarFetch for $2,479.
