I have an obsession with Chloe; it’s my own doing,
the Aruba arm candy called my name one day as I entered Harvey Nichols. Of
course I sold my soul that day and have been an addict ever since.
So I was excited to view Chloe’s Ready to Wear fall
collection at Paris Fashion Week, with my cuppa at the ready of course.
With Clare Waight Keller at the helm of the house,
Chloe certainly delivered a collection for independent woman; forget pre
seasons girly presence, Chloe just manned-up.
Models powered down the runway, bare legged,
sporting a tough-girl attitude showcasing a “back to school” collection, which
takes you tight back to the bike sheds.
Keller’s inspiration for this season’s offerings
came from her sixth form antics, think school uniforms with a Chloe twist.
I love the palette of this outfit
Lots of bibbed dresses, pleated skirts and V-neck jumpers were on show, with capes and oversized navy blazer coats, with plunging lapels stealing the show.
Royal Blue, navy and black was the palette of choice, with blue leather track pants worn with a grey tweed-print sweatshirt.Oversized duffle coats and military designs to die for were prominent throughout.
I love this
The must-have satchel
Satchels were the accessory of choice along with sensible school style shoes, the pointed lace oxford with a medium heel was a favourite. Footwear was worn with a pressed wool sock for a playground feel.
Chloe had some unusual pieces such as the “harem
pants” style cuffed trousers available in cobalt blue, black stripes and slate
A talkative piece was the netted gold evening wear
dress, which played homage to the school fence, gold in colour, versatile in
presence. It can be worn over any colour, to deliver a statement.
This was a practical fall collection delivered by
Waight, giving the young power female a contemporary yet chic look, with
wearable pieces for a grown-up winter wardrobe.
Has anyone else been following the shows? What are
you favourite pieces from the collection?
