This new Aurore edition from Chloé is making me nostalgic for the mid aughts, when the Paddington reigned as the it-bag. In recent years, it-bags have been churning in a sickeningly quick rotation. I miss the sweet stability of the Paddington era.
Chloé’s been showing some minimal looks in both accessories and RTW in recent seasons. Stores still sell Paddington styles, though. The range has its loyalists. Nice to see new adaptations of the Paddington, like the Aurore top handle + Paddington hybrid. To be seen if this style will slow down the it-bag cycle, though.
