Chloé, known for being a whimsical and classic Parisian collection, stayed true to their DNA at the recent Paris Fashion Week showing of their Spring 2015 collection. ”The starting point was fabrics that tell stories, particularly ‘folkloric’ textiles like the encrusted birds in cheesecloth, but I wanted honest, direct shapes. I liked the idea of denim, that it can be used raw or washed and it becomes personal to the wearer—it is immediate and honest. I wanted to have an idea of workwear as well as the flou, which was about volume and expanded from that densely packed fabric, crepon georgette. I wanted that one amazing shape that just hung off thin spaghetti straps.” Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Chloé told Style.com. This collection was dedicated to Chloé’s founder, Gaby Aghion, who passed away the day before the show at her home in Paris at age 93.
The trends spotted in Chloe’s collection include soft suede, romantic lace, classic denim, sheer kaftans and a western flare.
