fall prêt-à-porter, paris: chloé

the fall chloé collection stays true to it’s modern signatures of relaxed silhouettes & feminine details this season in paris. bold use of animal prints, color blocking & layered looks are seen as two-toned handbags, sheer snakeskin & wide legged denim trousers are seen. i loved the dramatic silhouettes of the collection & applaud the wide range of styles. im sure that a beautiful campaign will be shot & think that hannah macgibbon has done well in representing styles that are based in the foundation created by stella mccartney & phoebe philo during their reign at chloé. from more outrageous, less traditional design to bold use of color & hints of metallics, all the bases are covered by chloé this season. strong direction, but nothing spectacular.

spring prêt-à-porter: chloé, paris

the chloé collection presented for the summer/spring 2011 season is one of clean & simple style. a controlled palette is seen in the form of black, white, neutral & brown with red for contrast. the collection is relative to other collections presented along the lines of céline & stella mccartney, which isnt the least bit surprising- granted both designers at both labels were once creatively involved at chloé & historically redefined the brands style signature. current artistic director, hannah macgibbon, has been in place as the labels lead since SS09 & has seemingly opted to continue the concepts previously set by mccartney & philo. i love how the collection segues & transforms from look to look-clean lines, chic silhouette & refined style. simply beautiful.
