Freedom! 90’s! – these are the ideas behind Clare Waight Keller‘s best and most succesful collection at Chloe. This collection made me suddenly love the #ChloeGirl! It’s so beautiful and carefree… and comfortable! Inspired with women who defined the 90’s, Chloe for SS16 is a powerful nod to the decade. The show-notes consisted of a list of first names: Kate, Courtney, Corinne. Kate Moss, Courtney Love, Corinne Day. These names whisper of cool Britannia: where, away from Spice Girls glam, fashion was falling in love with the imperfection of a new style of fashion photography, and an unconventional way of wearing clothes. These three women that have their influence up to now, were imagined by Waight Keller wearing silk tracksuits, boho dresses and multi-coloured sweaters.
Taking a look at the details of these very feminine clothes, you can spot sensual lace elements, light sheer textiles and lovely tassels which appeared to be drifting in the air when the models gracefully walked the runway. Also, denim’s reign is continuing. Last season, everybody was obsessed with Chloe’s denim jackets – now, the ultimately chic shorts become the most coveted item of Paris Fashion Week. Just like colourful tops. Or the slip-tops that again make us all miss favourite summer evenings. well-done, Clare.
