Creative Director Gabriela Hearst has found her footing at Chloé. This season, the designer embraces the quintessential Chloé girl, fusing easy-breezy boho style with her passion for the environment. This collection introduces Chloé Craft, which expands the number of hand-crafted products the brand has in its collection. Each piece that is handcrafted by independent artisans will feature a signature spiral symbol. The techniques are special in that they cannot be mimicked by machinery. Rather they can only be mastered by the human hand. The initiative aims to establish new levels of transparency in the industry while also fostering a deeper connection between consumers and artisans.
Overall, Hearst embraces the free-spirited Chloé girl, inspired by love in all its forms. As for the bags, the revival Edith bag is featured once again in this collection, reimagined with leather ribbon detailing that is whipstitched by hand. New silhouettes are introduced this season, including the brand’s new Lawson bag, a leather bucket bag that showcases a sophisticated hand-done blanket stitch.
Additionally, the new Kattie bag is a focus for the spring season, a wearable convertible crossbody/clutch bag that also features hand-made detailing. Here, a hand-sewn blanket stitch and metal bracelet closures feature hand-wrapped leather or inlaid wood. The handbags are a perfect complement to RTW and shoes in the collection, effortlessly melding the Chloé girl with Hearst’s new vision for the brand. See bags from the collection below.
