Designer was ‘looking at a different kind of girl’.
CHLOE designer Clare Waight Keller sent out a collection combining soft, pastel-coloured femininity with earthy, untamed attitude on day six (March 2) of Paris fashion.
Dresses in folded layers of chiffon and drop panelled skirts embodied the essence of traditional Chloe woman while wildcat furs with tangled fringing and padded leathers introduced a sense of mystery and magnetism.
“For me it was really looking at a different kind of girl, she was a bit more wild, a bit more mysterious,” the British designer, who has been at the helm at Chloe since May 2011, told AFP backstage after the show.
“It was really a play on the idea of the Chloe femininity but in a more mysterious sense and I really liked the idea of bringing that sort of spirit and attitude into the fabrics too,” she added.
Other stand out looks for autumn/winter 2014/15 included elegant wrap coats, long column dresses in matte georgette and culottes teamed with knee-high suede boots.
Prints, meanwhile, came in shadow dots and geometric shapes.
Waight Keller is credited with reinventing Pringle of Scotland – famed for its diamond patterned jumpers so loved by golfers – taking the brand from heritage to contemporary fashion before being appointed creative director at Chloe nearly three years ago.
Following in the footsteps of fellow young British designers Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo and Hannah MacGibbon, she is seen as having provided a degree of stability at the brand known for its fuss-free luxury fashion with a youthful feel. – AFP
