Chloé Fall 2013 - PFW

"There is a certain English and boyish discipline that Waight Keller has added to the collections at Chloé—both in their style and substance. This appears to come from the lessons learned by being an accomplished menswear designer in the past. Today she used her skills to the full in presenting the idea of a schoolgirl growing into her own identity through style. "It's about girls who emerge from uniform," said the designer backstage before her show. "It's essentially about girls creating independence through the way they dress." She eschewed the cute and the surface perversity of such a theme—this was far from a replaying of Britney Spears' "Hit Me, Baby…One More Time" moment. Instead there was an elegance and hauteur in what was presented in double-faced and pressed wools, tweeds, and fille coupe fabrics. That was the influence of the French house; the English-schoolgirl attitude." -
