Even though we're in the middle of Summer, I'm totally kvelling over this 2009 Autum Paraty tote from Chloé, as it covers all the needs I'd ever want in a bag. The bowling shape is sturdy, structured, and the calf leather is deliciously soft. There's exaggerated piping detail on the front and back with gold hardware and and three straps; two are hand-held and one is a messenger style (which I find really helps alleviate back pain when I'm standing for too long). Also, it zips shut and expands on either side by almost a full inch!
The Paraty is available in 13 colours including, red, black, aubergine, olive, pink berry, taupe, tan, beige, chocolate, white and yellow, however the one that I most love is nutmeg. That rich cognac colour only seems to get better looking with age. Check out Lindsay Lohan toting it around in coveted blue python (the python will also be available in green, chocolate and black). It comes in two sizes (small, £872 and medium £928), and in a wallet version (£281). Do you have your eye on a new bag for Autumn already? Shop the Chloé Paraty below!
