In recent times our favorite French fashion house Chloe seems to have been fed up with launching collections inspired by some natural areas, a unique work of art or a free-lifestyle- propagandizing song. For already two seasons in a row the creative director of the fashion house, Claire Wright Keller finds her muses among the most popular It Girls of our times. It was not long ago that Chloe treated as to hyper-free, bohemian and ready-to-head-to-the-beach collection called Sun. But, to all appearances we could not enjoy those literally sunny pieces if not the famous socialite Sofia Sanchez de Betak.
For winter 2015, Claire Wright Keller quite unexpectedly got obsessed with the Après-ski lifestyle of Veronika Heilbrunner, a popular It Girl, a snowboard-fancier, an expert skier and a faithful friend of the fashion house. The great obsession resulted in launching the ‘70s-inspired Chloe Snow 2015 capsule collection perfect to wear not only on winter holidays in the French Alps but also in the city streets when the white snowflakes are dancing down the ground. The comfy and warm collection titled “Escape to Courchevel” is completely tuned with the fashionista’s get-up slogan: “It’s important that I’m comfortable”. Quilted-furred parkas, warm cashmere sweaters, twill overalls, straight-leg pants, wool beanies and scarves, as well as Georgia convertible leather belt bags are already available online on NET-A-PORTER.COM in anticipation to find their permanent home in your wardrobes.
The lineup’s ready-to-embrace-cold-winter spirit is expressed in every single shot of the eccentric beauty held indoors in a chalet, where she is lingering with her lone and isolated moments in Courchevel, on the brink to head to the mountains and indulge herself with the adrenaline-charged snowboarding. And here comes the Chloe Snow 2015 collection with its oversized, laid-back and most importantly ultra-warm pieces that will allow anyone to completely enjoy the snowboarding process without feeling any discomfort or cold.
Veronika Heilbrunner is shot in a navy blue shell jacket with a shearling-trimmed hood and some quilted and furred parts matched with a pair of ochre brown twill straight-leg pants. In another shot she is captured with a navy-blue pantsuit brought straight from the early ‘70s, which Veronika has matched with a cashmere turtleneck sweater decorated with zigzag prints. Mahogany brown in the background of all-white mountains can really become an attractive panorama. And Veronika does treat us to that magnetic view with her all-brown ensemble – a brown hooded shell jacket with quilted sleeves matched with the same shade tight-fitting straight pants and furry boots.
Overall, intarsia wool pieces embellished with zigzag-shaped motifs are predominating in the collection. We can see the collection featuring a couple of same structure sweaters, scarves and beanies, which are exposing either cream-red-navy blue or cream-beige-brown colorblocks.
Georgia convertible leather belt bags in three typical-of-winter shades are a good example of multifunctionality. Fastening this magical sand leather bag at your waist you can keep your cell phone in the safest place ever while up on the mountains in the middle of crazy snowboarding, while down the mountains sitting in a cozy café with a cup of hot tea the belt-style bag can easily be converted into a shoulder bag. Chloe definitely knows how to molly-coddle its clientele to the full.
