Paris’ Palais de Tokyo continues its series of fashion exhibitions with a major retrospective of one of France’s most beloved houses, Chloé. "Chloé Attitudes" is the very first exhibition chronicling the work of the fashion house and the contribution made by the nine key designers who have spearheaded each season since 1952.
From founder Gaby Aghion to current creative director Clare Waight Keller, the collection is showcase of Chloé’s finest moments in fashion history. Seventy signature pieces from the Chloé archive spanning nearly seven decades were curated for the exhibition. The theme looks to explore the creative process of an artist from inspiration to execution, a notion that resonates within the design aesthetic and spirit of Chloé.
To further commemorate the 60th anniversary, Chloé is re-issuing 16 of their most iconic pieces. These looks will be available both at the exhibition and then at Chloé boutiques in February. Also included in the anniversary collection are accessories and limited-edition pieces.
If you can’t wait until then, the Fall 2012 collection, designed by Clare Waight Keller, is in stores now. In this collection, Keller plays upon classic elements such as pearls and lace to accentuate a pastel palette based collection of casual wear, knitwear and coats. Soft silhouettes are accented by flowing silks, fine wools and cozy knits to offer both a sense of structure and breeze. Pops of lace complete the aesthetic, lending to the collection the femininity and charm that is ever so Chloé.
