The Fall/Winter '09 Chloe show at Paris Fashion week our favorite as always was the accessories. The collection was inspired by menswear as many of the collections were this seasons. The capes in flannel and blanket wools and the belted ruched shorts along with full sleeved and ruffled blouses had an aura of a modern day pirate. Accessories were stunning with the thigh high pirate boots, laced up ankle boots and GIANT satchel handbags the size of suitcases. The handbags are made of an embossed and washed astrakhan-style and ostrich leather.
