She told us how she enjoyed the transition from London to Paris. Whilst embracing her new city, she still brings her Londonianess with her.
Clare placed a lot of emphasis on the word ‘real’ during our interview as she told us that Chloe is about what’s ‘real’ and what’s ‘now’, and that the Spring 2012 collection was about capturing how real women dress today.
This is why she looked at a lot of blogs for inspiration. She wanted to capture those cool girls who are out there now because she found it inspiring to see how women put things together.
The Chloe look is not uptight and nothing is structured, but the Chloe girl still feels pretty and polished.
I found myself loving every piece from this Chloe collection. My personal style is quite relaxed, but I fell in love with the girlie, ultra feminine, easily wearable effortlessness of this collection.
Chiffon dresses were layered with white cotton t-shirts, shorts were paired with floral shirts, and I also loved the boyish slouchy pant suits. Striped maxi dresses, boyfriend shirts, drop-waist dresses and floaty chiffon dresses closed the show.
Pleats and stripes were the main themes of this collection, but I loved the floral pieces too.
Key accessories included bi-colour slingback pumps, low slung nude belts plus clutches and shoulder bags with wider shoulder straps.
Love Everything But The Shoes Award
Rachel Bilson attended the 2011 Teen Choice Awards yesterday looking absolutely adorable.
This white Chloé Resort 2012 dress was the perfect choice for this event.
Her cute summery dress is cinched in at the waist and features ruffled detailing around the neckline.
Rachel accessorized Brian Atwood ‘Cohen Borchie’ studded ankle booties which for me was completely the wrong choice.
Everything else about her look, including her girly half-up, half-down hairstyle and pretty pink lipstick is so feminine and on this occasion, the juxtaposition of her tough, edgy shoes fails to work for me.
I would have loved a pair of colourful strappy heels instead, much like her aqua Casadei heels she recently wore.
