PFW AW17 : The End of an Era with Chloé

by Bianca Hill

Claire Waight Keller was destined to be a designer. Everything about her screams fashion. And Chloé, the fashion house she is leaving behind, is a testament of her ability to fuse fantasy and reality through the seamless movements she created as an artist and designer.

Her last collection for Chloé is no different. The Alice in wonderland look, with a sophisticated and functional edge, have become somewhat of a brand benchmark for Cholé and those who follow the brand. So it was bittersweet to see Claire put down a marker for future creative directors to follow and aspire to. The intricacy of the color arrangments and deconstructed jackets provided the last bookmarks to Cholé's CWK era.
