The Impressionists: Chloé

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.
Immaculate scrap of crepe de chine knotted twice round the neck and pinned with a translucent glass and diamante apple brooch, at Chloé.

Always the same definite hand-writing, developed season after season, but such sure grasp of colour and how to make women look sexy that’s she’s become one of the most copied designers for knits and dresses. This spring, she continues her layered look, has a longer bodyline and belts to leave flying or tie under a gently bloused top. Milky pink sweater with long sleeves and small ties edged in raspberry, under pink mohair sweater with pink fine jersey culottes. The small-head look comes from tiny tight-fitting cap with strings. Palest aquamarine sweater with a frilled neckline and ties with matching flowers, worn with a fitting jersey skirt and the tight skull cap. Mulberry printed voile dress (opposite) with deep plain flounce at the hem, with a matching head-dress, held in place with a plaited woollen band like a sheik.
