Trend: Honestly Chic

May 16, 2005 by kendah

God bless some of London’s higher fashion heavy-hitters for managing to inject a little realism into the word chic. Phoebe Philo and her team have done their fair share to keep the house of Chloe alive and thriving, and its bags have certainly been a large slice of her prized pie. First gaining popularity two summers ago—and sadly falling into the confines of boho, or shabby chic genres—Chloe bags look a bit like deconstructed valises that can easily be dressed up or down. Although they’re not the newest of news, their keen balance of classy and edgy make them timeless pieces that can be pulled out of your closet season after season. Often adorned with heavy padlocks or grommets, they scream “high fashion!” without screaming “highly overstated!” Their price tags, however, remain “high!” So, if a real Chloe bag runs the chance of burning too big a hole in your pocketbook, you can try tricking everybody with your Paddington knock-off, as seen on le-fashionista.com.

Score a Chloe Paddington on ebay.
