Note the sculptural gold Kiss hardware on Chloé’s white cross-body bag, which is inspired by the shape of a woman’s lips. It’s crafted in Italy from smooth leather to a curved profile that has a magnetic top flap and suede lining, then hallmarked at the front with a hot-stamped logo. Carry it using the adjustable strap to capture the unstudied mood.
Founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, the original Chloé girl, the label is regarded as one of the essential postwar brands, alongside Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior. With icons like Karl Lagerfeld as former head designers, Chloé continues to draw upon its rich heritage of beautifully designed pieces, widely featured in publications such as Grazia and Harper’s Bazaar.
