Created in 2009, the Chloé Marcie bag has become a mainstay for the French House, withstanding changing creative directors, trends, design aesthetics, and more. Over the last 14 years, the easy-going silhouette, defined by its curved lines and equestrian details, has remained a beloved choice for celebs, fashion insiders, and handbag collectors alike.

And while Phoebe Philo and Clare Waight Keller are often credited for creating some of the Parisian House’s best bags, it was actually then-creative director Hannah MacGibbon who masterminded the Marcie bag. When it debuted, the Marcie quickly rose to become one of Chloé’s most-celebrated silhouettes. To this day, the Marcie bag remains a source of inspiration, reinvented season after season in new colors and novelty materials and appearing on the runway sporadically.

Revisiting the Marcie

For Spring 2023, Gabriela Hearst is again revisiting the Chloé Marcie for inspiration, taking the Marcie’s iconic 70s folk spirit and reimagining it in an inventive, unexpected way. Reinvented as a clutch, this new feminine shape is crafted from grained calfskin, bearing the Marcie bag’s iconic, distinct equestrian detail on the front flap.

Equal parts classic and contemporary, the new Marcie clutch plays with texture, showcasing both shiny and grained leather. The removable and adjustable strap allows for two ways of carrying. Tote in hand as a clutch of wear over the shoulder as an on-trend shoulder bag. Finished with the Marcie’s iconic brass hardware, the Marcie clutch is a new take on one of the handbag world’s most beloved silhouettes.

I loved the marcie but this looks like the botega pouch and the Chloe marcie had a baby when they really should not have?

I don’t like it and I love my mini marcie – probably my most used bag. Comfy. Light. Classic. Bombproof. I want it in more colors.

Looks like a nice roomy clutch. I like the look of a clutch but it doesn’t work for me. Love my med Marcie satchel in tan.

I do like this bag a lot but find it just a bit too wide. Also the strap might be too thin, but I can’t tell from the angles of the photos that show the strap. I don’t want one of those ultra-wide straps, but don’t want super thin ones either.

I don’t like the price, given that the satchel is (was?) around the same price point.

I like the classic version better. Perhaps this one will take some time to get used to? Sometimes I am like that with bags and end up missing the trend because I didn’t love it the first time.

Just bring back the Paddington! for some reason I never did like the Marcie. it reminds me of the saddle bag you put on a horse

It’s funny how the Paddington was sold out everywhere … but wasn’t popular in Brussels where we were living at the height of the Paddington’s popularity. I used to walk the cocker past one store where the same Paddington had been languishing on display for weeks. The sales staff said that people came in, looked it over, then shrugged and left. Maybe they all went to Delvaux instead.
