Designer Gabriela Hearst unveiled her first collection for Chloé earlier this year. Her debut collection for fall 2021 focused on the concept of moving forward and a continued commitment towards sustainability. Now, Hearst has unveiled a look at her latest collection for the French design House, which builds upon the fall 2021 collection.

A focus on innovation and lower impact materials can be seen throughout the collection, and the House is taking impressive measures to make its collections more sustainable. Hearst herself sited the importance of motivation over inspiration, telling Vogue, “We’re here on a mission…If you came for the romantic mood boards and the classic tales of trips to the archive, this wasn’t it”.

The collection overall oozed a sort of sensible bohemian vibe and the bags were no different. 80% of the handbag leather used in this collection is low impact, sourced from tanneries that are certified by the Leather Working Group. Linen linings are used throughout, which are considered to be less impactful than cotton interiors. As for the denim details, they are crafted using leftover stock from previous collections.

Chloé’s archival Edith bag was seen once again this season as were other silhouettes like a sleek and simple shoulder bag featuring clean lines and a braided handle. The shape seems to be a focus as it is presented in all-leather as well as leather with denim details. Other shapes include boho detailing like eyelets and crochet. View bags from the collection below.

I am still not here for her. The change is so severe and I’m not feeling it.

Agreed. They don’t feel like Chloe bags to me.

This is so bad… Chloé used to be luxurious bohemian, artsy yet graceful… This is just hippy rubbish, it looks extremely cheap.

The bucket bag design is nice, but still looks cheap in photo.

I’m not a Chloe fan so I have no dog in this fight. With that being said, I wouldn’t say no to the coat in the last picture. BEAUTIFUL

Looks nice but not for the luxury prize tag that will come attached. Considering all the money they’re going to save reusing all those fabrics and materials hopefully the prices will drop. The clothes are nice enough but handbag design is clearly not Mrs. Hearst’s forte.

This is more Gabriella Hearst rather than Chloé. As a knitwear designer I don’t like this.

“We’re here on a mission…If you came for the romantic mood boards and the classic tales of trips to the archive, this wasn’t it”, and then proceeds to pull a bag design from the archives ?
