Chloé // Fall 2018 Ready to Wear

A link between before and after, a transition to a new attitude.
A second collection that continues the dialogue initiated during the first parade of Natacha Ramsay Levi.
Clothing designed as archetypes, diverted into activewear, elaborated in a purpose that captures the essential.
English tweed or plaid coats, wool and nylon gabardine, processed materials, woolen suits designed as uniforms, wrapped woolen wrapped cape.
Utility trousers, trellis or khakis, cotton cloth bombers, dry woolen shorts, short riding jacket.
The overlays reveal the skin as a print and redefine a silhouette in accumulations with seventies lines.
Crepe polos, satin-back blouses, silk crepe that open on ribbed, smooth, plain or houndstooth lurex under-pulls. Embroidered blouses, long necks and flare pants.
The prints respond to the inspirations that preceded them, to the imprint of the archives of the house.
Little horses embroidered on crepe de chine blouses, Recurrence of the "O", the eye-letter of Chloé, loop or ring and "C", answer each other from print to print.
Rithika Merchant's images are projected as esoteric traces on pockets or patches.
The functionality of the garment is mingled with soft and artisanal details: Valencian lace, crushed gathers, embroidery lace mirrors graphic or plastered.
Contrasts of matt and glossy glosses are tinged with wood colors, rust, terra cota, mocha, midnight blue, gray, shades of beige, whites and khakis.
Each accessory illuminates the silhouette of a dense light. Amulets jewelry worn as esoteric totems recall this singular femininity still to come.
