Chloé Bronte Shoulder Bag: The Bronte Sisters

Chloé Bronte Shoulder Bag

I saw the Chloé Bronte at Barneys this past weekend, and I instantly fell in love with the straightforward simplicity of its design. I am always drawn to structured shoulder bags, but this one feels even more special than most. The emphatic yet not-chunky hardware doesn’t infringe on the elemental effect of the bag – which is rare.

Sweet yet formal, retro yet so 2014: this is elevated schoolgirl chic at its finest, especially with a contrasting shoulder strap that adds another layer of dynamism. Black especially stands out on small chestnut-tan leather, while the larger burgundy-wine style will make you feel warm in the dead of winter. In either size and color, such coy primness (that’s not without irony, of course) begs to be roughed up with touches of grunge elements, so don’t be afraid to style the Bronte to your heart’s content. Chloé Bronte Shoulder Bag available in small tan, $2,695, and full-sized burgundy, $2,995, at Barneys New York.

Pair with: Layer it over Stella McCartney’s plaid of the season. Her fuzzy tartan feels unexpected on the casual (and layer-able) Da Defini jacket. On Ssense for $1,200.
