Some of fall/winter’s most comforting looks were shown this season at Chloé under the guise of effortless, breezy style. An optimistic palette of pastels and pale neutrals underscored the fluid movement and easeful wearability of Chloé’s collection of colorful furs, open-faced toppers, and padded jackets. Designer Clare Waight Keller proved her knitwear authority by guiding the presentation toward sumptuous, plush outerwear in a variety of cashmeres and wool fabrics. Yet, the effect was airy and lightweight despite the protective layers. Keller hails from Britain, and has proven to be a wizard at blending proper British tailoring and a hint of tomboyish charm with chic French style and haute hippie sophistication.

Beyond her achingly beautiful double-faced cashmere coat, smooth wool jackets and fleece-leather hybrid toppers were a variety of layered day dresses, printed separates and ruched leather trousers. She even showed a daring pair of navy blue suede shorts capped with rolled leather hems. A hint of wildness crept slowly into Chloé’s dreamy presentation in the form of prints that mimicked leopard spots, and plush furs that sprouted sections of color. For evening, Keller trimmed her carefree dresses with splashy gold medallions, metallic symbols and gold foil hieroglyphs. For the upcoming Fall/Winter season, think high-fashion sophistication, without fuss or frippery.
