You’re in for a treat if you loved the Paddington
Chloé has had some serious bag hits in the last 5 years or so. Former designer Clare Waight Keller knocked it out of the park with bags like the Drew, and the Faye, which saw massive success for the brand. When Keller left the brand it was unclear what new designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi would do. In the first few seasons prior, she embraced the work of her predecessor, including both the Drew and Faye lines on the runway. Additionally, when Ramsay-Levi introduced the Chloé Tess Bag, it clearly played off of elements that were already successfully for the brand. This season, as with Pre-Fall, it seems that Ramsay-Levi is finding her own groove at Chloé.
The small version of the day bag we saw for Pre-Fall 2019 walked the runway, which you'll remember paid homage to one of fashion's most popular it bags: the Chloé Paddington. This new, but old, lock seems to be a big push for the brand, also appearing on a new structured flap bag, which is finished by oversized gold rings and a chain strap. Additionally, the brand introduced a mini-bag which at second glance is actually a blown up version of the Paddington lock, complete with a stiff gold handle. Models also clutched some furry little numbers, which walked alongside the popular Tess Bag as well as the newer, mini version of the Chloé C. View all the bags below.
