7 Iconic Chloé Bags We Have on Our Forever Wish Lists

Chloé has a habit of creating cult handbags. It all started in 2005 with the slouchy Paddington featuring a gold padlock. In fact, you could say that the epic waiting list it caused was one of the triggering factors behind It bags even becoming a thing in the first place. Thirteen years later, the accessories department at the French fashion house is still sending shoppers into a spin, and right now there's another new handbag that shoppers are clambering to get their hands on: the Chloé C bag.

The shoulder bag is really elegant, as it has a wide leather strap, a delicate C logo on the clasp, and comes in beautiful colors like dusty blue, rich chocolate and even a vibrant tie-dye effect. There are several different silhouettes, such as square mini bags with a sturdy top-handle strap, as well as rectangular shoulder bags with a chain strap and oversize shoulder bags.

This bag was always destined for cult status. Elizabeth von der Goltz, global buying director at Net-a-Porter, said in her 2019 trends presentation, "Chloé's Chloé Bag we have backed with around 20 options for both cruise and runway totalling to around 3000 units and making up 80% of our total Chloé bag buy." Let's just say this is reason enough for us to swiftly add this new It bag to our Christmas lists.

Style Notes: The Drew handbag is also a street style favourite, and it has an elegant round silhouette with a gold chain strap and clasp. Olivia Palermo has the two-tone yellow-and-rose style, but if you're after a more classic, long-lasting option, we recommend the black or tan versions.
