Designer Of The Month

For the month of June I’ll be walking the streets of my city in heels with a drink in hand and my Chloe bag in the shoulder. I have chosen Chloe as designer of the month because it was the go-to bag at Coachella’s Music Festival and the brand’s history inspires women to be fearless and follow their dreams. Chloe has recently been the it-girls pick from Kendall Jenner to Victoria Secret’s Angel Alessandra Ambrosio so it’s only right that we get on board with the trend.

What’s Chloe’s History? Chloe is a French fashion house created in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, an Egyptian woman who moved to Paris and pursued her dream of offering pret-a- porter a ready to wear luxury bag. However, it was only until two designers united forces that Chloe started to grow into a brand.

 

Fearless Chloe – Another reason why Chloe is designer of month is because Gaby Aghion is the definition of Boss. Gaby Aghion was an innovative fearless woman capable of sensing gaps in the market and was determined to introduce high quality off the rack fabrics. Gaby had a vision and was determined to reach her goal, her passion was her encouragement to fight multiple challenges along the way, including the market back in the day, which only produced made to measure couture.

 

Modern Chloe- Today, Chloe has expanded to five sections, which include fragrance, Accessories, ready to wear, children’s wear and my personal favorite ‘See by Chloe’ focusing on a younger generation. You can check out the brand at its headquarters in Paris or you can also check out my personal favorite Chloe bags on my website.

How I wear it: Festival season has inspired celebrities and myself to wear the brown Chloe ‘Hudson’ shoulder bag. adding a pop to a plain black romper or light color outfits. To dress up, my go to is the Chloe Drew small leather bag that I pair up with heels and a nighttime dress to impress. For the weekday, I love taking my Chloe mid size handbag to work where I can fit all my makeup, iPad and work documents.

Designer State of Mind- Be strong and courageous in May, pursue your dreams make new goals and work towards those you have yet to complete. We all have those New Year resolutions that we did not fulfill so let June be the month where you take up where you left off. It’s really inspiring to see how a young Egyptian immigrant made her dreams come true in the capital of fashion and revolutionized an entire market making it what we know today. If Chloe has made it as a brand you can make your dreams come true too!

 

XOXO,
