Chloé Fall 2010 Collection: Say It Ain't So, Hannah

Chloé's fall 2010 runway bags are the most disappointing bunch of arm candy I've seen in quite some time. When a label, under the highly-edited and expert eye of  a creative director such as Hannah MacGibbon, goes from producing an endless parade of hit bags (Sally, Paraty and Marlow to name a few) to bags like the ones on display at Chloé's runway show, something is definitely amiss.

While creating a collection heavily influenced by the long-haired, trouser-wearing American beauties of the 1970s, MacGibbon carried the simplistic motiff straight through to the accessories. Suddenly everything looked boring, dated and entirely played out. How can I expound on drawstring shoulder bags and "boston" satchels? There's nothing to say because these designs are devoid of style. They're like vanilla pudding - OK, but not scrumptious like chocolate.

I'm disheartened by this collection, and truly hope we'll be seeing more of our favorites come fall. Please, Hannah, say it ain't so. Tell me you've still got your "mojo" because I'm starting to doubt, and I don't want to lose faith in you. Come back strong next time, and ditch these yawn-inducing bags right quick.
