A Lock To Love
For Fall Winter 2019, Chloé welcomes the Aby Lock, a new statement bag that builds upon the heritage of the iconic padlock signature that dates back to the Paddington from 2006.
As a defining feature that links Chloé bags across time, the lock is being interpreted and applied in new, enchanting ways throughout the current Aby collection. Symbolic of love and secrets, of constancy and solidity, the lock has become quintessentially Chloé. The stylized padlock is at once functional and decorative, and speaks to savoir-faire.
Playfully re-imagined as a lock-shaped minaudière, Aby Lock is enhanced with an engraved keyhole at the centre of its mirrored base, a metal top handle, and a dangling chain with a signature Key charm. At once timeless and personal, the design stands out as both a jewellery object and a whimsical, strongly symbolic Chloé accessory.
In addition to the handle, a fine metal chain allows Abylock to be worn on the shoulder and cross-body. The bag will be proposed as a mix of materials with emphasis on different textures from croc and lizard-embossed to smooth leather.
