Paulo Melim Andersson is Chloe's new designer. By "new," we mean, not married to wooden wedges and tented lace, and all the things a certain tribe of girls has adopted as uniform. By "new," we mean, way different. Mr. Andersson's first show blazed that difference onto every outfit - patent leather combat boots; stiff wool coats (or were they dresses?) sealed with a sideways zipper; chiffon bloused into a gown that buds at the waist like an adolescent flower. And the color, Crayola, like "Orange you glad you still love Chloe?" We do still love it, but in a different way - an "oh cool" way, not an "I want to be that girl" way. Maybe because the new Chloe girl already exists - rule breaking, heel scuffing, a bandit smile and a pillowcase mini dress pinched up off the floor. Paulo said the girl was "angry, but funny angry... young-young with no tricks." Meanwhile, we say the girl is Leigh Lezark, the MisShape, finally and fully translated into Paris fashion. We don't want to be her (because we couldn't, even if we tried), but we still love to watch. See the whole show on Style.com.
