Chloé’s brown Marcie handbag is a house hallmark, characterised by the topstitched seams on the front flap that nods to equestrian tack. It’s made in Italy from butter-soft grained leather to a slouchy silhouette with a concealed front slip pocket and zipped top that opens into a roomy twill-lined interior. Carry it by the wrapped top handles or attach the shoulder strap.
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.
