(ELLE.com) – Lanvin's accessories collection comes off (yet again) as sleek, cool and elegant, and Stella McCartney at Chloe brings her hip fashions to the masses with a more affordable line.

24-7
Clean, modern, simple, elegant ... few design houses are truly worthy of those often overused terms, but Paris' oldest design house Lanvin has pulled off the sleekest accessories collection of the spring season. Designer Cristina Ortiz (formerly at Prada) was able to invigorate this season's collection with a subdued palette with flashes of bright coral, shocking pink, and turquoise. The new 24-hour bag, an updated, slightly larger version of last season's wildly popular bowling bag, is sure to be the next coveted item. But don't overlook their latest baguette revisited: a silk, pastel-hued handbag with metallic chain strap that gives new meaning to the terms "lady-like" and "refined." Suede Cleopatra platform sandals with ankle cuffs are a nice change from this season's killer stilettos.

Stella, Baby!
Cash-strapped Chloe fans can let out a sigh of relief! Come early next year, sizzling hot, 28-year-old designer Stella McCartney is set to launch the less expensive See by Chloe. Available worldwide early next year, the casual line will feature T-shirts retailing for around $65; pants priced at $120; and dresses for around $240. Priced at a fraction of the original label's prices, See by Chloe will no doubt have throngs of Chloephiles clamoring to get a hold of Stella's sexy creations.
