Chloé’s statement bags have garnered quite the cult following in recent years, as the Parisian fashion house successfully launched two of the most coveted ‘it’ bags in recent history. Although traditionally well-loved, the release of the hugely-popular Faye and Drew bags has catapulted Chloé to the top of the style standings, and the brand now celebrates fans among celebrities, fashion bloggers and everyday style aficionados alike. While the fashion house set itself a tough act to follow, Chloé’s fall/winter ’17 collection doesn’t disappoint; the brand-new ‘Pixie’ style is making waves in the fashion community thanks to its unique circular shape and signature gold bracelet handles.
— THE CHLOÉ PIXIE BAG —
Shown above in Black, Motty Gray and Sienna Red, Chloé’s new ‘it’ bags flaunt a wearable colour palette while debuting a statement new style. In an enviable suede-and-leather mix, this bag will set you back £1,020. Unless you can afford to splurge on this beautiful cross-body, tapping in to the circular bag trend shouldn’t be too difficult, and I’ve rounded up the best Pixie-inspired dupes on the market.
— THE ZARA DUPE —
Zara’s selection of handbags never disappoints, and their Pixie-inspired cross-body bag certainly isn’t an exception to the rule. A deep bottle-green hue meets saddle-style stitching and two metal hoop handles for definite dupe vibes, while interior pockets and a removeable shoulder strap add functionality. Snap up this style for a mere £29.99 here.
— THE ACCESSORIZE DUPE —
What Accessorize’s dupe lacks in bracelet handles, it makes up for with its signature stud detail, blush gold hardware and ring detail on the front pocket. In two ultra-chic shades — mustard yellow, as above, and classic tan — this cute cross-body bag will see you through the autumn/winter season with ease. Shop the Cooper Camera Bag in yellow or tan for just £25.
— THE MANGO DUPE —
For an understated and refined dupe which only hints at its designer inspiration, look no further than this minimalist cross-body bag from Mango. A pared-back design in beautiful tan suede is completed with a top handle, adjustable strap and subtle stitch detail. Its classic tan suede finish with light gold metal hardware nods to the Pixie style but this Mango option is worthy of its own acclaim. Shop here for £49.99.
I absolutely love the circular cross-body bag trend, and you can pick up other styles on the high street which don’t necessarily mimic the Chloé Pixie. They’re fun, easy everyday bags which you can throw on with most outfits and they’re available in some perfect autumn/winter shades. If it is the designer dupes you like though, you’ll be pleased to know that the high street is still taking serious style inspiration from other designer bags. I’ve spotted tonnes of dupes for other Chloé bags, which include the classic Faye, Drew and Nile styles, as well as a heap of Gucci dupes (obvs) and even an Accessorize take on the customisable Anya Hindmarch bags (see here).
