Clare Waight Keller goes back to the roots of Parisian style - effortless simplicity with a boyish attitude and romantic details

The Spring/Summer 2017 collection celebrates the effortless simplicity of French style intrinsic to the Chloé girl. Crafted with a woman’s touch, the crisp and graphic silhouette evokes a summer freshness through planed volumes and textiles light as air. A sense of tailored freedom abounds in a play of boyish attitude and romantic details.

Poised for the city, the collection embraces a sartorial palette of optic white, navy, black, carmine red, taupe and marine blue lifted by pure shades of blush pink and pale yellow. The rub of suede or cotton lace contrasts smooth twill and knife pleat georgette, giving way to the floating ebb of printed cloque and undulating ruffled plissé.

Laced and buttoned cotton lingerie creates an ultra feminine counterpart to cargo trousers with patch pockets or a distinct tapered sarouel shape, as spacious romper and pinafore shapes are belted with an o-ring sash. Shorts and v-neck sweaters are finished with shirting cuffs or a cotton drawstring hem, whilst square neck envelope tops are knotted in bows at the shoulder or wrist. Topstitch borders and ‘jour échelle’ ladder trims adorn the tiers of sheer evening blouses and flounced slipdresses, before a passage of ruched floral print ensembles cascade from the shoulders in a closing gesture of nonchalant ease.

The Spring/Summer 2017 collection is worn with double strap graphic leather sandals and the ‘Faye’ backpack or ‘Nile’ bracelet bag in calf leather and suede marquetry. Continuing Gaby Aghion’s tradition of the Chloé alphabet, a new charm bracelet collection bears the letters of each model’s given name on a gold chain.

“For me this collection is about going back to the roots and simplicity of French style, for effortless clothes in beautiful proportions. Square volumes and crisp fabrics keep the message strong and graphic, with a hint of floral innocence.” Clare Waight Keller
