Chloé Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
The great Gaby Aghion, Chloé's founder, passed away on Saturday. This collection is dedicated to her.
When Aghion showed her first collection, it was from a location that was popular with the French artist and classic boheme. It is believed that Chloé's association to the bohemian culture is just by chance because of this. But as they say, everything is for the best. Aghion kept this chic, relaxed, easy-going, and effortless elegance to all of her clothes throughout her time, inspiring a lifestyle. After Aghion retired, a long list of great designers took charge of the design (famously, Karl Lagerfeld, Pheobe Philo, and Stella McCartney).
Clare Waight Keller, the brand's current designer made this collection with Aghion clearly in mind - this collection is symbolic of everything Aghion wanted the Chloé girl to be about. Very spiritual, authentic, effortlessly gorgeous. This meant loose and flowing silhouettes; short hems, sweatshirts, loose denim. Everything is so filled with air! It's so fresh. And the best part is that this collection is the fabric, which could have belonged to your grandma. It looks like Keller took this very fabric and made something so modern out of it, right for a weekend getaway or for just coffee at the local place. xx
