Chloé Fall Winter 2010 Collection
Tuesday March 9th, 2010 – Espace Ephemere – Jardins des Tuileries
Minimalism seems to be the plat du jour this Paris fashion season; so much so in fact that certain collections looked almost too restrained and conservative. Meanwhile, other shows took a safer route, opting for more commercial looks at the expense of creative expression, thus adding little to the conversation. But when that minimalism is translated into smart, complete outfits, the end result is a pragmatic collection that we can actually see ourselves wearing. Hannah MacGibbon achieved just that, producing a luxuriously comfortable Chloé fall 2010 collection that never strayed too far from the house’s youthful, carefree roots.
References to the 70‘s with cross masculine-feminine silhouettes aided that process, as Hannah demonstrated with a mens topcoat and suit, framed it over a loose, denim button-down shirt, and paired with camel colored high-waisted pants fastened by a hue-matching leather belt. The long and fluid jersey dress provided an unexpected allure, the embroideries over velvets reveal a subtle couture spirit.
The use of leathers to produce high wasted pants, a chocolate quilted camel bomber, a trim on chambray dresses and a flanked, fringe-corseted pair of trousers made these looks lust-worthy. Even the boots, loafers and wedges were cut in natural leather to match the new Chloe bag, Aurore.
One look at these model’s gait and you knew that this collection was meant to please the body and the eye. But MacGibbon one-upped it with a sumptuous lambskin sweatsuit, cashmere sweatpants, a fur coat and a pair of after ski boots. And while some decried that the collection looked monochromatically brown, the use of cafe to fauve hues made it easier to visualize these vestments complimenting our fall wardrobe.
