PFW: Chloé Spring/Summer 2011

Chloé’s creative director, Hannah MacGibbon, made us fall in love with shades of nudes. With the new Spring/Summer 2011 collection, it’s clear that MacGibbon is still passionate about soft shades of beige, as well as minimal, sleek designs. Similar to last season, MacGibbon’s designs are all seamlessly sleek, this season, with a few darker shades added for good measure (a dark cherry double-breasted jacket and some black was also used).

The main colour palette stuck mainly to chocolate browns and beiges, as well as some crisp, clear whites. Sheer layers were an integral element to each look, with shorter skirts worn underneath sheer floor length, draping maxi-skirts. The looks were mostly feminine, with elegant dresses featuring artful pleating, while MacGibbon playfully added some smooth leather for an ample touch of luxury. Some more powerful tailoring also stood out, with structured trousers and body-hugging roll necks, all in block colours.

The collection was delectably minimalist, a style that we have come to know and love about Chloé in seasons past. There was no change in direction from MacGibbon, but that’s because it just wasn’t necessary. The clothes were womanly, mature and empowering, with a touch of luxury and richness, injected through the colour palette and embodied by the sleek models who elegantly graced the catwalk.
