Chloe go back to the archives

With any Chloe collection comes a certain expectation. Its an expectation of effortless glamour, an expectation that you’ll fall in love at first sight with the soft Parisian quality and mood of the clothing. How new Creative Director Clare Waight Keller will interpret the Chloe mood and how her designs will line up with those expectations won’t be seen until spring 2012 hits – but in the meantime a Resort 2012 collection full of sophisticated ’70s influences, put together by Chloe’s design team while the brand’s leads are in transition, lives up to it without difficulty.

Jacquelyn Jablonski is Chloe’s girl about town in floating pleats, ’70s wide leg pants, structured coats and romantic sheers; and all in all its an archival-based collection that won’t disappoint any Chloe fan.
