The Cutting Edge of Chloe

“How does it feel to be finally in charge at Chloé? ”Oh, it’s heaven!” a warm respond of a tired but gladdened 38-year old blond British designer, Hannah MacGibbon. As we all know, she assisted Phoebe Philo from 1997 through the label’s red-hot early-halfhearted days to heat back up again after some tepid seasons.

Here she comes, let’s bow our head and praise our Chloe Princess as she enters the kingdom this winter season.

Sassy, sexy and ultra cool, Chloé is a paradox of both feminity and romance infused with a Parisian street-creed edge.

To my Chloe Girl whose urban tedium never faded her lust for life with an aristocratic past and to the present wild side.

“One day, she is in a fox, beaver and coyote jacket, insouciantly worn with a billowing musketeer silk blouse and stovepipe pants whose very proper English morning stripe is scrolled with very un-proper gothic blooms. The next, she is feeling for something that is free, loose, and flowing – a rose griffe print silk dress that skims over her body before languidly flaring out towards the floor. If she needs something to throw on top, she’ll grab the lean, nipped-shouldered wool coat with velvet buttons that she borrowed from her Kensington nanny, the coat she could never be bothered to return. Yet no matter what she wears, this Chloé girl is never without her jewel-like compact bag, in shiny leather rimmed with python, which hangs from her shoulder by a multi-chain strap. Super pointed spike heels in patent leather and crocodile sharpen up the look.

There are amply proportioned, masculine-look overcoats, with folkloric side slits, in classic English herringbone or check tweeds, slipped over bejeweled organza and mousseline tutu skirts. Victorian-inspired narrow cuffs and a high neckline adorn a lace cocktail dress… Lace or gazar polo shirts and cropped, straight fit boyfriend sweaters are the crucial underpinnings… And add this season’s essential Lurex leggings or floral glitter tights, and the whole look really rocks.

Chloé’s long-standing tradition of richly imaginative prints is continued. There are many ornate, opulent patterns—border-edged Pallenberg paisleys, bold medallions, and naive lace designs that look like they have been collaged from the furnishing remnants of a once sumptuous, now abandoned manor house. The color palette is like a jewelry box being opened on a darkening winter’s day: amethyst, rose, and evergreen, contrasted with black, biscuit, smoke grey, and midnight. “This season, the CHLOé girl belongs to the magpie school of looking good. She is a little vagabond, a little boheme, in spirit, and in her life” says Paulo Melim Andersson, Chief Designer of the house.

(the Chloe Press Release)

This is truly an evidence that MacGibbon holds a key to the It-ness, the spontaneous, non-intellectual-girl knack that is central to Chloé.

Shout for joy and praise for glory, an Italian designer was born in the name of Bottega Veneta way back in the year 1966. This legendary fashion house was started as a family business of luxury leather accessories based from Vinceza, near Venice in the region of Italy, as its origin. Two renowned people became the founders of this great fashion house namely Vittorio and Laura Moltedo. They developed a tradition of selling quality products from its hand-woven leather bags, belts, and shoes with no outside signature or logos, making the functionality and classicism as its product signature.

The combination of design and comfort made Veneta shoes very popular among other designers. Its timeless style has earned the company loyal and fashionably discerning followers from the famous faces. German-born Tomas Maier, the creative director, took the helm in 2001 after the house of Gucci bought the brand and revived the flagging brand by injecting a more modern feel and reworking the traditional woven leather signature. Maier was able to imbue the brand with a dash of modernity while retaining the classical, exclusive feel. The brand also makes ready-to-wear clothing for men and women possessed timeless and ultra-luxurious looks that gave Veneta enough credits to the fashion industry.

Designer Fashion Trends: The Class of Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld

Top designer Karl Lagerfeld is known for using men’s styles, pieces and tailoring on his apparel for women, and he doesn’t disappoint for Fall 2008 with the collection that bears his name. Famous for manufacturing garments that directly rivaled Gucci and Prada clothing, Lagerfeld expresses a fairly common point of view with a style that’s in a class of its own.

With all the mannish pieces that made their way down the runway, you couldn’t have been blamed for thinking that you’d walked into a menswear show. Although masculine clothing and techniques resurface as a fashion trend every now and then, few have plumbed the depths of this style as thoroughly as Lagerfeld. It seems that every two or three collections of his heavily feature this element.

Juxtaposed with the masculine pieces were very feminine garments such as the frilly skirt and oversized bowtie that accompanied a breasted suit, an all-black ensemble that opened the show. Similar outerwear was paired with form-fitting pants or a pencil skirt to give the overall outfit a more feminine appeal. As the show progressed, however, the outfits became increasingly more feminine until an asymmetric black number concluded the collection.

Karl Lagerfeld

Smart would probably be one of the best words to describe Lagerfeld’s collection. The outfits were elegant when they were minimalist and chic when they weren’t. Although the designer stuck with a color palette that was almost 100% black, gray and white, the cuts and the techniques on the garments compensated for the lack of color.

A lot of textures and technical items can be observed in the collection, but not right away. That probably speaks of the expertise of Lagerfeld as a designer, that he can make even the complicated look so straightforwardly beautiful. Not to mention. acessories like prada handbags or classy Gucci shoes can just add another charm to the apealing looks. Ah.. Why not to walk with a style!
