Chloé

Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including sleek elegance at Akris, sporty futurism at KENZO and bobo-inflected accessories at Chloé.

Akris Spring 2015

At Akris, creative director Albert Kriemler showed a collection of precisely cut, monochromatic looks, many with textural, graphic motifs inspired by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist works.

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.

Michelle is one of the sweetest Fashion Week photographers out there. She manages to balance her hectic schedule and job demands without sacrificing her personal style. While comfort is key, style is also paramount, Michelle says. I love this nod to the military themes we’re starting to see for fall, while keeping it modern with leather shorts and a graphic tee. See you in the trenches, Michelle!

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.

Model Sacha captures the beauty and wearability of Chloé in this July 1973 spread from British Vogue.

Photography duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snap the playful and cool side of Chloé for Vogue Paris, February 2012.

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.
