Chloé-ssentials for this season

Every fashion addict loves Chloé bags. Classy styles, fancy materials and signature details: this is all we expect from our designer pieces.

Chloé’s Spring-Summer and Fall 2017 collections that just arrived at Cosette do not make exceptions.
So, what will be the most-coveted bags this season?

CHLOÉ FAYE GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG

Chloé’s iconic Faye shoulder bag is probably THE must have this season. It has been developed in a variety of sizes, materials and colours so that everyone can find their own.
If we trust the gorgeous Olivia Culpo and Chrissy Teigen, we should go for a medium size and a caramel colour. We cannot disagree with them: this shade of brown matches every outfit, and this not-too-small-not-too-big size is adapted for an everyday use. Little bonus: the shoulder strap can be removed to turn this shoulder bag into a fancy clutch 😉

CHLOÉ MINI FAYE SMOOTH AND SUEDE LEATHER BACKPACK

Whether you are a traveller like Aimee Song, or an active city-dweller like Alessandra Ambrosio, the Mini Faye backpack is ideal for one who needs to feel as free as stylish.
Its compact size makes it easy to carry, and yet, its unique compartment is roomy enough to fit all your daily essentials. This bag can be carried in the back, but also on the arm thanks to a removable top handle. And as convenience can rhyme with elegance, this little beauty combines refined details such as a Suede leather flap and Chloé’s signature hoop and chain closure.

CHLOÉ SMALL DREW GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG

The Drew is probably Chloé’s most popular bag from a while now (Sincerely Jules and Olivia Culpo are just random examples amongst all fashion icons who got charmed), and however we can’t get enough of it.
We love the combination of a simple round shape and flap with glamorous gold details. In the latest version of this bag, the chain strap is linked so you can either carry it on the shoulder with double chain or on cross-body with single chain. For that reason, we even love it more!

Spring will be feminine! with Isabel Marant

Heads up! Isabel Marant’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection freshly arrived in our COSETTE stores, bringing for the coming season a highly feminine boho-chic style.

Isabel Marant Spring Summer 2017 Campaign visual

The words ‘Everyday Feminity’ – also translated by ‘Feminine utility’ – were used by Isabel Marant herself to describe the spirit of her SS17 collection.

This season, workwear silhouettes are adorned with ruffles, floral prints and statement sleeves, when jumpsuits and baggy pants meet with an unusual ratio of dresses and skirts.

But do not get me wrong: this flirty, romantic feel does not detract the cool and effortless style that makes the designer’s recognition!

Let me share with you a sneak peek of the selection now available in-store at COSETTE.

Summer can’t come any sooner and I long to re-visit my summer wardrobe.
Let’s pack and go on a trip – at least in a dream – to my favourite Summer holiday destinations in the French Riviera.

Sea, Sun & stripes. Nice! The true French beach vibe and too gorgeous to miss.

Quiet and little-known, Menton, a great spot to enjoy the French Riviera’s authentic charm away from the crowd.

Discover just landed #SaintLaurent

What better way to finish your week than with #SaintLaurent most-coveted handbags?
This season’s New Arrivals see timeless elegance and sophisticated-boho attitude. We have curated the most coveted pieces from the Spring-Summer 2017, where luxury encounters revolutionary casual styles.

If you desire a handbag to elevate any of your outfits, don’t look any further, the Saint Laurent Monogramme Fetish is the one for you. Its rebel-chic feel will take you from work to play with a subversive cool attitude.

You may already know this satchel in Suede, but we personally had a coup de coeur for the Nappa leather one. Nappa is a premium-grade full grain leather – here 100% calfskin – that has been tanned and drummed to give as a result a strong and durable material with a soft feel.
We love its shiny gold color, on which iconic YSL ‘monogram’ logo stands out, raised in a matching gold-toned metal. To contrast with this glamorous-gleaming body, the shoulder strap is made of a very simple knotted lustrous-black rope. It crosses under the bag’s flap and spans it with an eyeleted topstich design, finishing with a hanging Saint Laurent’s signature tassel.

The Medium size of this satchel is perfect to fit a wallet, a phone and a few beauty products for a light touch-up during a late-night outing. The bag’s interior is lined in black Suede leather and split into two main compartments and a card slot.

Care tips:
To keep your bag bright and glossy, be careful not to use aggressive products such as solvent near the item: it could matifiy the shiny leather finish in case of contact.
It is also recommended to always lay your leather bag on a soft – or at least plain – surface (and obviously never on the floor) to limit the risks of abrasion and scratching.

In the latest style orientations taken by Hedi Slimane, and followed by Anthony Vaccarello, we notice a strong retro feel, as a tribute to the past of Saint Laurent couture house. The bag’s collections are no exception, with some of their designs directly inspired from the house’s archives, such as the Small Y Studs Bucket bag, a modern version of a Saint Laurent’s 1970s style.

With a Fox brown supple Suede body and tasseled drawstring ties, this bag carries a bohemian, free-spirited mood.
Suede leather indicates the underside of the skin (for this bag, calfskin) that is buffed and brushed to bring up a napped, fine-velvet-like finish with a very soft touch. As it does not include the tough exterior skin layer, the Suede leather is also very light, thin and pliable.
On this bag, the Suede leather body is embellished with antique-gold toned studs, shaping a large Y letter on the front and a row of smaller ones on the bottom, as a discreet hint to the house creator’s initials. The YSL signature also appears as a metal charm comprised in one of the tassels.

The Small Bucket shape of this bag is very convenient to store your everyday goods in a large, unique compartment. The grosgrain lining makes this bag resistant, despite the delicateness of the leather.
Thanks to the adjustable shoulder strap, you are free to sling the bag over your shoulder or carry it cross-body.

Care tips:
Due to its textured nature, the Suede leather will slightly change over time and gain character – just like good wine. If you want to keep it brand new for a longer time, it is better to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Also be careful with rain and other liquids that can be absorbed by the open pores of this leather.
A Suede eraser can be used to clean stains or refresh darkened zones (handles, bottom, etc), always after being tested on a small hidden part of the bag.
