see by CHLOÉ: eclectic & playful
Eclectic and playful, Chloé combines French sophistication with an English festival girl style for a carefree, sporty collection. “It’s about a poetic and charming way of putting things together, flirting with innocence from a place of strength,”say Chloé’s creative director Clare Waight Keller.
Sophisticated laces and silks are mixed in a relaxed, nonchalant way through a wardrobe punctuated by parka’s, jogging pants, boyfriend culottes and silk scarf blouses, combining fluid parisian chic with easy english attitude.
Chloé’s knitwear has a playfulness in dimensional patchwork cables in felted wool stretch and an enlarged floral intarsia for an airy lace sweater. Typically woven pieces are reinvented in soft knits, such as the knit effect teddy shearling in a leather trimmed V-neck.
For the evening, magnified off-white lace provides the foundation for a pearl-scattered story with appliqué lace flowers. The new T-shirt is in fine lace with satin sleeves, whilst a delicate combination of lace and silk refines the shirtdress.
Soft brights shine and light up Chloé’s eclectic mix, a rainbow of candy pinks, brick red, lemon and apricot, dusty blues and mint, tempered with classic camel and a dash of letterbox red.
