The Many Bags of Chloe Grace Moretz

Chloe Moretz isn’t our youngest Many Bags subject, but she’s close. The 17-year-old actress is beat out only by 16-year-old Elle Fanning, and their two handbag collections definitely have some overlap. Namely, both ingenues are beloved by a select group of high-end European brands, which affords them lots of Paris Fashion Week appearances and rare handbags in their closets. Below, check out what Chloe’s been carrying since she arrived on the Hollywood scene.

Prada is the Latest Brand to Court the Affections of Cat Ladies

Other Brands

Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette

Prada’s handbags tend to be overwhelmingly staid; the brand has positioned itself, season after season, as the source for work-appropriate power bags for women with corner offices (or corner office aspirations), and although Miuccia allows for an artistic departure here and there, whimsy is usually not her stock in trade. With that in mind, I have no explanation for the Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette.

Kitschy, literal bags are a huge trend right now (as is weirdness in general, and as are cats), and Prada will bow to pretty much any accessories trend that becomes strong enough, even if it isn’t totally on brand. (Gotta sell bags, after all.) This cat’s jeweled eyes and nose relate the clutch back to Prada’s visual signatures for accessories, but other than that, it just doesn’t feel like much of a Prada bag; if you had told me it was Charlotte Olympia, I’d have believed you without question, and that’s a brand with which Prada’s general aesthetic just doesn’t overlap. That’s not necessarily a complaint–the bag is super cute.

Prada’s previous ventures into literalness that haven’t been either purely artistic or plainly political have generally involved very small accessories, like teddy bear bag charms. As much as I love Prada’s general handbag aesthetic, it’s never bad to see a brand have a little bit of fun. Apparently, I’m not alone in this approval – the bag sold out at Bergdorf Goodman in a matter of days.

Want It Wednesday Mini Bags

Mini bags are most often associated with warm weather; after all, who doesn’t want her hands free during the season’s outdoor activities? They’re just as useful during the fall, though, especially when coat weather comes around and regular shoulder bags compete with your outerwear for shoulder real estate. Now that basically every popular bag comes in a mini size, along with all the bags that were designed to be mini from the beginning, your choices are vast no matter the season. For this edition of Want It Wednesday, the team has enumerated its favorites below.

Get 20% Off Tons of Designer Handbags

ZAC Zac Posen Daphne Satchel

We’re always on the lookout for new and unexpected places to buy handbags; after all, having more options makes it more likely that you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for and get a decent deal. Although you may associate our site with reasonably priced books and household goods, Fashion also holds an impressive selection of handbags, shoes and clothing, mostly at contemporary price points. Not only that, but the site is offering 20% off a $100+ fashion purchase at the moment.

I had noticed Amazon coming up more frequently in my handbag searches recently, and when I did a bit of exploring, I realized that the site held far more fashion options than I would have guessed. When you combine that with Amazon’s customer-friendly delivery and return policies, competitive approach to pricing and perks like Amazon Prime, it’s easy to imagine Amazon building out an even more robust role in online fashion shopping in the near future.

Best Bet: Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

Other Brands

Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

I’m always on the lookout for bags that look more expensive than they are. That can be a hard thing to pull off, with ever-rising leather prices and executive boards that expect high margin percentages, so when it happens, it makes my day. If you’re looking for a solid work bag that looks professional and sophisticated without a price tag higher than your monthly rent, look no further than the Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel.

They key to this bag’s expensive look is how sharp it is. It’s got plenty of structure, uncluttered lines and a color combination that accents its shape while leaving it totally work-appropriate, even in an extremely conservative office environment. It’s capped off with just enough gleaming silver hardware, including a front lock that’s reminiscent of closures commonly seen on both Louis Vuitton and Prada bags, which goes a long way toward elevating it into expensive-looking territory.

If the old adage about the wisdom dressing for the job you want and not the one you have has any truth to it, this bag is exactly the kind of thing that a recent grad with her first office job needs on her arm. It wouldn’t be too shabby for a not-so-recent grad, either.
