There’s nothing I love more than seeing a young brand make a vast improvement, and it would be an understatement to say that the new season bags coming out from See by Chloe are better than anything that we’ve ever seen from them. They’re a lot better.
Six months ago, would you ever have expected that we’d ever see something as sophisticated or elegant from the brand as the See by Chloe Grasshopper Crossbody Bag? I certainly wouldn’t have, but I couldn’t be more pleased to have been wrong.
The word that comes to mind most when I look at this bag is “grown-up,” and that’s in stark contrast to the previous seasons of work from See by Chloe, whose bags had been heretofore characterized by a sort of innate childishness that made them always a bit unappealing. I consider myself a grown woman, and a lot of their bags didn’t seem mature enough to go with my wardrobe, even at 23.
But this one, however, has style to spare. The color isn’t my favorite, but the bag’s lines earn such high marks that I don’t find myself thinking about the color in the least. It looks like the powers that be finally let some of Chloe’s tailored bohemia into the little-sister line, and it was just in the nick of time. Buy through Saks for $590.
