Say ‘Bonjour’ to the New ‘Camille’ Bag by Chloé

After celebrating its 60th birthday last year, the French house has created a bohemian Spring/Summer collection.

So it is time to say ‘Bonjour’ to the newest member of the Chloé alphabet…. A for Alice, B for Baylee, C for Camille.

 

The idea behind the Chloé alphabet is that, with one letter and one new bag each season, Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller, works her way through an alphabet of accessories in homage to the house’s founder, Gaby Aghion, who was an avid reader and who also chose to name her new pieces alphabetically.

The latest star bag from Chloé is the canvas and raffia Camille, in a nod to the hippie-boho influences seen in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The perfect blend of modernity and discreet elegance, this is one piece that will take you from day to night, in all seasons.

 

Camille canvas and raffia bag, Chloé, €1,500.

 

 

Channel Your Inner Chanel

Got that Monday morning feeling? Suddenly the week ahead seems extremely long, and the weekend behind us already seems like a distant memory…

But hey, why not cheer yourself up by new purchase? They do say shopping is therapy.

Recently it can not be denied the recent wave of Chanel’s Optical Illusion dress to hit the red-carpet.

Created by Chanels mastermind, Karl Lagerfeld, the dress is cut in a boxy shape to give the appearance of a crop top and skirt but features a tight-fitting middle panel.

But if you are just a mere mortal like the grand majority of us, why not give this Topshop version a go? Available in lilac, mint green, and white hitting all the right Spring/Summer 14 ‘Pastels’ trend.
