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.

I’m not in love with any of these, although I appreciate her emphasis on sustainability! I also find it interesting that she’s moving away from Chloe’s previous hardware-heavy designs.

Clothes are fantastic, bags are *very* arts and crafts. If this is her “finding her footing” it seems like one is on solid ground and the other foot is on the San Andreas fault line.

None of these bags make sense to me; I guess I’m not a fan of the bohemian aesthetic.

As gorgeous as these bags are, I’ve always found most Chloe bags to be impractical.

I love a fun bag, but there’s just too much going on with these for my taste (also I can admit that I’m not generally into the boho thing). My all time favorite, and the only chloe bag I still own, is my paraty, I love that it’s not only got a unique shape, but it’s simple. The wackiness of some of these is really a big departure from the traditional chloe vibe

Not sure if I love or hate the Edith bag.. It has it-bag potential in my eyes, however, I’m curious if anyone else also thinks that this collection is a heavy nod to early 2000s bag culture? I’m thinking Sienna Miller or Kate Moss vibes…
