Chloé

I can’t wait to try out the new metallic trend, and this Studio 54–inspired skirt is the first thing I’m going to get! While the golden, pleated midi skirt has a ’70s feel, Soraya pairs it with a contemporary moto jacket and sleek-cut blouse, which modernize the look. Updated aviators and a designer clutch give this outfit even more trend power.

How amazing does Laetitia look in this bold noonday sun? She practically radiates grace and glamour. I love vintage, and this fifties-inspired look is beyond beautiful.

The full, patterned skirt is a must-have this fall, and burgundy is going to be the must-wear color, so Laetitia is right on point. Her simple pastel blouse is an understated complement to the statement skirt and heels.

Runway Rundown: Chloé

Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller heard the call of the wild for fall 2014. But keep in mind—what’s wild for Chloé isn’t necessarily nutty for your average girl. In fact, we’re betting she’ll love Waight Keller’s punchy fall offering, which includes plenty of fringe sweaters, metal embellishments and ’80s-style prints. We also spotted some nods to wildlife in the bags and shoes, from python details to heels trimmed in fur.

Dana Avidan-Cohn, an editor at InStyle, has mastered the art of New York cool. Her sleek and slim silhouette gets some serious city edge, thanks to her leather detailing and snakeskin bag. It’s those amazing zippered skinnies that really caught my eye, however. Zipper details are becoming a major trend, and this pair is a must-have!

Look who’s back: Irina! This blogger beauty (A PORTABLE PACKAGE) never disappoints. She likes to experiment with trends, but always manages to look fresh and unique.

Leather pants are practically a requirement here at PFW, but I like how Irina has toned down their tough edge with a feminine blouse and sporty coat.

The visionaries behind the Chloé Attitudes book hosted a swank gathering at the brand’s rue Saint-Honoré boutique to celebrate the first printed volume to chronicle the maison’s 60-year contribution to fashion.

(left to right) Art director Marc Ascoli, Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller, Chloé CEO Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye and the book’s lead author, fashion critic Sarah Mower, jump in the life-size TV photo booth for a candid photo op.

Guests were treated to their own impromptu shoot in the TV box, which was situated in the boutique’s courtyard, and received a keepsake photo.

The evening was marked by a special appearance from Gaby Aghion, who created Chloé in 1952.

Ascoli, who is known for his image-branding work at fashion houses that include Jil Sander, Yohji Yamamoto and Chloé, is a contributor to the book.

The noted art director helped scour the brand’s archives to find imagery that captured the essence of Chloé from its founding with Aghion to its present allure thanks to the talents of Karl Lagerfeld (1966), Martine Sitbon (1988), Stella McCartney (1997), Phoebe Philo (2001) and current creative director Clare Waight Keller.

Pages from Attitudes decorate the boutique, like this tear from the September 1965 issue of British Vogue, featuring model Breiten Moser in a graphic skirt and headdress by Chloé.

Noted guests of the evening included Tank magazine’s Caroline Issa, Moscow-based street style star Miroslava Duma and Vogue Japan’s Anna Dello Russo.

The sleek simplicity of Kim’s look is refreshing to see amongst all the wild style of the bloggers at Lincoln Center. J’adore those structured wide-leg pants and that clean white clutch. And no outfit would be complete without this season’s hero, the motorcycle jacket!

Lookbooks are one of the best parts of the resort season, which kicked off earlier this month. It’s fun to see the different models and settings the designers choose, like Joan Smalls on a rainy city street for Givenchy or Hanne Gaby Odiele against stark white walls for Theyskens’ Theory. We’ve culled a few of our favorite shots from the new collections below.

There was an independent spirit that breezed along the runway at Chloé’s fall/winter 2013 show at Paris’ Jardin des Tuileries, where Clare Waight Keller, the brand’s creative director, proved yet again that her English sensibility is the right fit for the French fashion house she joined just two years ago. The attitude of the collection was at once tough and schoolgirl-flirty, delivering in the form of boyish cuts, romantic pants, utilitarian fabrics and hard-edged accents like chain links and zippers.

The combo of hip-hop beats and sunlight beaming in through the skylights of the tent definitely aided in translating the carefree, feminine vibe of the collection, which will surely make dressing for cold nights a lot more fun.

Check out some highlighted looks from the Chloé fall ’13 collection (and some of the famous faces we found in attendance at the show)!

“Part of what gets me excited about Fashion Week is being around our buying team and taking in their passion and enthusiasm for what’s happening,” said Pete Nordstrom, who we spotted front row before the show started. “It is actually really rewarding, because it reaffirms we have the right people here on the job. At night, it’s fun to hear the buying team talk about what they’ve seen during the day. It always brings out a lot of positive energy and creative ideas.”

When asked what he’s enjoying most about this market trip, Pete shared, “It’s always interesting to get away from our stores and see what’s going on in other places. Whenever we travel, we check out local stores which is helpful. I get to talk to different people in the industry as well as other retailers.”

For Pete, having the right discussions is key. “I make it a point to talk with some of our major vendors about how we can strategically grow together. There are certainly a lot of discussions to be had.”

Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, was happy to finally experience some great weather in Paris.

Denise Junell, our designer handbags buyer, gave us the scoop on what women will want to be carrying for the coming season. “I thought this collection was really great and fresh. There were two new key bag shapes. I loved the oversized duffel with the wide strap and the convertible bag that walked as a hobo,” says Denise

“Mixed media was huge in the bags as well, and it goes along with that whole utilitarian and multifunctional trend that continues to be in demand with our customers. I think Chloé is going to be a great avenue to get this look for fall.”

Linda is always easy to spot during Fashion Week, thanks to her platinum locks and bright style. As a blogger (Lifestyle Hunters), Linda travels the world searching for fashion inspiration, and she fits right in here in London.

The graphic simplicity of Linda’s outfit has an updated mod feel. I love her pleated windowpane dress AND that awesome two-tone tote!
