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. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the collection also included one very notable new handbag.
There's no word quite yet on the name of this new bag line, but it's a shoulder bag that will come in several sizes and probably also make the jump to satchels and totes if its front-flapped, ring-closured look proves popular. And there's no reason it shouldn't; the bag does an excellent job of putting a modern polish on the 70s boho aesthetic that's been spotted throughout the season's collections.
The collection also includes a new micro-mini bag that is certainly not big enough to hold any phones produced after 2011, but those seem to be having a bit of a moment right now for reasons I can't fathom, so don't let it distract you too much from the collection's fine addition to the handbag market. Check out all the photos of both below.
