Aside from reimagining signature Chloé silhouettes since taking the role as Creative Director, Gabriela Hearst is focussing her energy on creating new accessories. Spotted on the brand's spring 2022 runway, the Louela tote is the latest from the Uruguay-born, New York-based designer. Sculpted from sustainably sourced leather, it's framed by a textural interplay of tricolour twisted suede and calfskin to highlight the label's new approach to artisanal design.
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.
