The Chloé Fall-Winter 2015 collection captures the heightened, worldly elegance of the Chloé girl. Inflected with romance and a touch of arcadia, the collection follows her story and celebrates whimsical classicism as a modern day movement. The collection’s nonchalant spirit evokes the essence of the outdoors for a soft yet strong femininity.
Pale, powder tones are warmed by a heritage menswear palette, as lavender, beige rosé, and cornflower blue mingle with deep navy, heather green, rust, ivory and umber. Tactile materials are essential; where the opulent touch of check wool, melton, corduroy and compact curl shearling meets the urban polish of sepia python, the sensuality of silk crepe and the delicacy of lingerie lace.
Falling from a peaked shoulder, sculptural guard’s coats and sartorial tailoring define the long-line silhouette; with wide lapels and military details balancing the effortless flow of lace-trimmed silk. Scooped waistcoats add a boyish element to sensual frogging blouses. They are worn over tweedy shorts or tiered column gowns in floating silk crepe cinched with cotton cord. Opulent, graphic moments arrive in a dense patchwork of fine wool knitwear and winter garden florals blooming across silk velvet and intricate jacquards.
The Fall-Winter 2015 collection is accented by the compact, saddlebag shape of the new Hudson shoulder bag embellished with suede tassels or python patchwork, and the tooled, contoured lines of the Hayley Hobo. Round-toe booties in vegetal leather feature a fuller block heel and giant ribbon lacing up the ankle.
