PARIS--Much like her predecessors, Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo, Chloe's Hannah MacGibbon designs for a specific woman. She's ageless, but youthful. She's also impeccably groomed.
And she loves classic silhouettes with a modern edge. As a follow up to last season's smash hit camel collection, MacGibbon sent out a ballerina-inspired collection: white wrap dresses, taupe body suits paired with pants in the same tone, and a brick red dress coat that added the pop of color spring collections need.
There were also some pleated chiffon dresses, which the house is known for. They reminded me slightly of the dresses Philo did in Fall 2004--one of my favorite collections ever--but with the slick modernity demanded by today's customer.
The models--their hair in tight buns, makeup in neutral tones--looked beautiful and polished. I strive to be a Chloe girl.
