Pick of the day: Chloé Aurore handbag
Chloé isn’t really a brand you would initially consider when in the market for a new purse. There are other, more popular names that customers would first explore – Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Hermes, Chanel – before deciding to go down that road.
Having said that however, we’ve been pleasantly surprised with the kind of purse designs that the French brand has been releasing over the past few seasons. They’re refined, restrained and not dependent on logos to sell or get noticed. The label’s new generation of top-handles and totes are not trendy per se, but they do command attention and leave a memorable impression among the most discerning fashion spectators.
That the Marcie has become synonymous to the Chloé brand is a case in point. And we thought you should know that for the serious handbag shopper hunting for the next piece to add to her collection, Chloé is a good place to start looking.

And start looking at this – the new Aurore duffel. Molded in that ever-popular, practical toolbox shape and finished with clean, flowing lines and an alternative steam punk allure, the Aurore is a beautiful fusion of urban utility, feminine inhibition and an irreverent passion for unconformity. The ideal bag for active city-dwellers, the Aurore comes in two simple versions, duffel and tote, and in two shades, black and caramel, and is available at Chloé boutiques in the UAE – at Boulevard Emirates Towers and Fashion Avenue at The Dubai Mall.
