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 bag.
The shoulder bag is really elegant, as it has a wide leather strap, delicate C logo on the clasp and comes in beautiful colours, such as 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, to a rectangular shoulder bag with a chain strap to an oversized shoulder bag.
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."
Of course, Chloé wouldn't be Chloé without launching yet another bag for us to lust after. The brand revealed the latest destined-for-It-status bag last season called the Aby. Taking inspiration from the classic Paddington, it features a padlock on the larger boxy styles and a chain or leather strap. The smaller versions, known as the Aby Lock, feature a sliding chain and fold over flap on a petite boxy style.

5. The Faye
Style Notes: The '70s-inspired Faye bag with a circle clasp and chain detailing first showed in the house's S/S 15 show, and it since has been worn by every blogger we can think of. Years later, we're still obsessed. It's still worth investing in a Faye, as they've become a true classic.

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, while if you're after a more classic, long-lasting option, we recommend the black or tan versions.
