Both feminine and boyish, the latest Chloé resort 2013 collection has a particular effortlessly chic vibe
and can be characterized by the same pure sophistication and romanticism specific to the legendary French house.
The new Chloé Resort 2013 collection features tops, dresses, pleated pants, shorts, skirts, trench coats, a soft palette of shades, crisp white and timeless black, but also some oh-so-cool prints. Waight Keller manages to amazingly echo the house’s style and adds some of her personal approach. Even from her first collection for the brand, the designer wanted to make the Chloé woman strong without losing her femininity. Waight Keller told Suzy Menkes, fashion editor of The International Herald Tribune, that for her the Chloé girl is natural, with a sense of freedom. And her vision can easily be seen in the unique mix of fabrics and the fab combinations of something really feminine and something a little bit easy and boyish.
Even though at the very beginning she was rather scared, we must admit that Waight Keller’s creations are absolutely delicious. “My first Chloé collection was scary, because there’s a lot of anticipation,” she said in an interview the Financial Times. “I’d really only been here for six to eight weeks, and I was taking things home at the weekend and wondering, ‘Am I doing this right?’ It was an intense six weeks of reworking. Now I feel, ‘Ok, I’ve got a few new reference points that are going to become mine, and a few old ones that I’ll put a new spin on,’ but it’s a difficult time for designers. You’re always toying with, ‘Is this new enough? Have I seen this before? Is this right for women as well as the brand?’”
