How much do I love Jil Sander? My love for the ultimate minimalist brand is seemingly exponential, as whenever I think they can’t get much better, they go and take the basic hobo and reinvent it.

Chloé Drew Crossbody Bag: The Luck of the Drew

I’m going to say it: the Drew collection is the best thing to come out of Chloé in quite some time.
