Chloe Girl Goes Urban For Spring/Summer 2017

Couturier Clare Waight Keller just left us speechless as her Chloé spring/summer 2017 collection got finally unveiled at Paris Fashion Week earlier yesterday morning. Dubbed “urban innocence”, this collection was all about minimalism and relaxed lines, with warm pops of colors coming in slowly and in small proportions. It was both urban-chic and romantic, and also offered new intriguing takes on pajama dressing that are just mesmerizing.

The lineup’s abounding amount of naïve, feminine proposals was often offered alongside a few, yet quite distinctive, mannish staples, the simplicity and clean-cut lines of which just set the bar higher for whoever will focus on androgynous minimalistic styles in the future. The menswear-inspired looks mainly consisted of revisited suits, often in total-black or just a white shirt to create dynamism, as well as oversized rompers, which got, of course, embellished with a cloth belt.

Like most of Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks’ spring/summer 2017 collections, Clare Waight Keller also playfully emphasized the waistlines, either via cloth belts or cropped tops. In comparison with her fellow colleagues, she did not solely focus on the waistlines, but rather chose to experiment with minimalism with oversized and layered cuts too.

While the layered looks recalled the ‘innocence’ motif the designer brilliantly infused the line-up with, it was in the more oversized and relaxed garments that urbanity came out in all its glory, with Expressionist-inspired floral embellishments even adding vibes that are more playful.

The Chloé spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection displayed coherent chromatic choices that, as a whole, were just a pleasure to watch. Although monochrome patterns were at the core of the entire collection, with just a few florals, stripes and abstract patterns, Clare Waight Keller specifically left the more romantic, sensually naïve colors, such as pink, pastel yellow and bright white for the ‘innocent’ section of the collection, with black, off white, red and blue helping the staples get more cosmopolitan.

Cascades of sheer fabrics got utilized to adorn both the more innocent and the urban-ready garments, with even larger proportions of see-through fabrics baring the skin and creating an appealing contrast with the richly textured fabrics of the trousers and gowns.

Aside from the great variety of cocoon dresses, revisited baby dolls and even Seventies-inspired maxi frocks, the Chloé spring/summer 2017 collection treated us to an astounding amount of cropped culottes, ultra airy harem pants, and billowy short shorts, the minimalistic lines of which will make it extremely easy for us to layer and mix-and-match them with any type of staple we already own, creating appealing urban-chic combinations.

As for those who constantly fall in love with any athleisure-inspired staple Clare Waight Keller may ever create, throughout the collection it was clearly possible to catch sight of cozy t-shirts and sweatshirts too, which, needless to say, looked absolutely perfect even when paired with the lineup’s most elegant proposals.
