The Impressionists: Chloé

1970s, Chloe, Inspirational Images, Jo Francki, karl lagerfeld, Over 21, Vintage Editorials
A pink silk patterned shawl, wrapping and tying round the waist over a gathered silk skirt.

Delicious, delicate colours (porcelain-pink with shell, lavender-blue with lavender-grey) in seemingly effortless, natural shapes with hardly a seam in sight distinguish Karl Lagerfeld’s collection for Chloé. He showed a new way with scarves —a small square folded and tied round the neck with translucent fruit scattered with rhinestones pinned to the knot. Romantic shawls and scarf-wrapped waists, with softly gathered skirts.

Hair by Alex at Jean Marc Maniatis.

Make-up by Jacques Clemente.

A pale shell pink crepe de chine tee-shirt worn under a dusty pink crepe de chine blouse, with a delicate lavender coat and softly gathered skirt. Tiny crepe dechine scarf knotted at the neck. Shell-pink and lavender-pink shirt and skirt, the waist softly tied in a long matching scarf.
Played down – one perfect piece that goes on everything, like Chloé’s apples or the translucent flowers.
