Chloé is renowned for its wait-list-worthy ‘it bags’ – like the Marcie, Faye, Drew, and Nile – but as Clare Waight Keller showed her final collection for the Parisian fashion house back in February the fashion world wondered – would the designer deliver? Would she leave us with one last iconic bag? Well folks, the answer is yes. We have another beauty to drool over AND a new bag trend to embrace. Meet the Pixie: the cross body, circular shaped bag in a rich array of colours from saffron red to intense green. Your arm candy just got a whole lot rounder.


And if that’s not proof enough, Mulberry also unveiled their new Trunk bag collection for Winter ’17 – a family of rounded hat box inspired cross body totes. Which are quite frankly too beautiful for words.

So there you have it, a hot new ‘it’ bag trend is born. And while summer was all over the basket style, this updated Winter version is elegant, chic and more refined in soft leathers and gorgeous velvets. As I type, your favourite stores are stocking up on the circle bag, because let me tell you, the high street is not about to miss out on this Insta-hit. I’ve already snapped up one in black velvet from Whistles, but here are my top 3 next on my wishlist…
