Chloé Pre-Fall 2012 Press Preview

During Couture Fashion Week I was invited to view Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2012 press preview.

This is the second collection under Chloé’s new creative director, Clare Waight Keller, who was inspired by the images of 1960s and 1970s street-style photographer Garry Winogrand.

A lot of the pieces were volumized as the designer seemed to enjoy playing with proportions; the collection included cocoon-shaped coats, jackets, oversized checks and pants, boyfriend sweaters and boxy blazers.

These androgynous silhouettes were presented alongside more feminine pleated skirts and silk blouses, some with playful ruffles or embellished bibs.

Sharp tailoring was evident throughout, but the perfect simplicity of Chloé was truly shown via the two white gowns which have Kate Bosworth’s and Rooney Mara’s names on.

Many of the pieces have a classic, timeless quality to them which make for perfect staples.

My favourite looks included the yellow pastel oversized blazer and the coral pleated dress.

    I like the second in row white dress but the rest is kind of blah as far as I’m concerned.
