Designer Highlight: Chloé


Spring/ Summer 2015
 Fall/ Winter 2010

If there is any brand that I feel inspires my wardrobe on a daily basis, it is ChloéClean, sophisticated, chic and modern is what comes to mind when I think of the aesthetic encapsulated by this French fashion house, and with every collection presented comes a reinvention of these characteristics in new and stylish ways. Regardless of what direction Claire Waight Keller chooses to take on with the looks of each season, the signature polished core is still always prominent.

When I think all the way back to Paris Fashion Week and the shows that truly left an impression on me, the first one that comes to mind is hands down Chloé's Spring/ Summer 2015 collection.  This specific collection, as displayed in the first row of pictures, skillfully balances a combination of breezy boho with chic, clean-cut, and structured details. It's feminine, flirty, and also remarkably wearable - I could relate to every single piece and could especially imagine a great number of them being worn to events such as Coachella or a sunny, oceanside date. What girl wouldn't want to rock these beautiful pieces? Youthful, yet elegantly assembled. Free-spirited, yet polished. This collection truly has it all.

Fall/ Winter 2010 is another collection that I personally admire a lot. In comparison to the looks presented at S/S '15, this one definitely falls more on the professional and sophisticated end of the spectrum. However, it is still certainly done so in a way that is modern and wearable for a younger audience. I absolutely love the rich shades of beige that are presented in these looks - beige itself is an incredibly luxe neutral, and to pair it with its own variations rather than other tones is a surprisingly fabulous combination. The looks are sleek and refined, and I can once again see them being quite wearable. 

Viewing these two collections and their difference in approach goes to show that the versatility of Chloé is vast. Yet as vast as they can be, these collections all relate in the sense that they consist of the beautiful signature touches that make the brand what it is. Whether it be the breezy, free-spirirted vibe that S/S '15 brought us, or the polished and cultivated looks of F/W '10, Chloé knows how to cater to any woman's aesthetic in a way that is universally fabulous.
