The 70s were still on Claire Waight Keller’s mind for the Resort 16 Chloe bags collection. Following on from her glam rock meets vintage inspired takes in the Chloe RTW Pre-SS16 collection, the bag stories of this season are also reflections of this attitude, demonstrating Claire Waight Keller’s ability to translate storytelling across all her collections. The Chloe Faye bag, a favourite of Nicole Warne, Emma Watson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Selena Gomez, returns in two sizes this season, a medium and small. Reflecting the gothic black meets glam rock romance themes of this season’s Chloe, both sizes feature in a black, classic tobacco or motty grey variety. Alternatively, the Faye bag also features in a shoulder strap option for a more functional, 70s inspired look, coming in black or caramel with suede and smooth calfskin fabrication. The Chloe Hudson bag features in a new larger size this season, as well as the signature small. The horseshoe shaped bag features studs around the edges, a top flap with triple braided leather detail and a 70s style suede tassle toggle pull. Coming in black or caramel, this bag is the pinnacle representation of the thematic elements of this season and is the ideal piece for the perfect Chloe woman. The Chloe Marcie small cross-body bag, as seen on Anna Dello Russo, the Harper and Harley blog and Harper’s Bazaar magazine, returns this season featuring grained calfskin fabrication in colour waves of black, cashmere grey and tan. The composed piece is a must-have for every fashionable woman on the go. Nothing says statement Chloe elegance however, than the highly coveted Chloe Drew bag. Gaining a cult following for its unique style, composed look and feminine touch, the Drew bag is a must-have in every high-fashion collector’s wardrobe. Adapting to the themes of the season, the curved shape Chloe Drew bag features in a new medium size with accented silver hardware and chain, and a leather shoulder strap and a push-lock snap closure with a toggle, coming in the thematic colours of black and motty grey. For less of the vintage and more of the seventies glam, the medium size Chloe Drew bag also comes in caramello and black featuring accented gold hardware with a gold chain and a leather shoulder strap on suede and smooth lambskin. Plus, for a subtler combination of both themes, there is the motty grey variety with gold hardware and a gold chain on elegant grained lambskin. Alternatively, the small (original) sized Chloe Drew bag also comes in black with silver hardware or in motty grey, grained lambskin with a silver or gold chain and hardware. Its 70s inspired counterparts feature in caramello or black smooth lambskin and suede, with gold hardware, or abstract white smooth lambskin featuring another seasonal theme – leopard print, with gold hardware.
