Chloe goes feminine and floral for spring 17

Chloe goes feminine and floral for spring 17

Chloe opted for florals and feminine pleating for the new spring 2017 collection.

Creative Director Clare Waight Keller unveiled the French fashion house’s latest line on Thursday morning (29Sep16), as part of Paris Fashion Week.

The range maintained Chloe’s signature nonchalant ease, with the show opening with a model wearing a pair of wide-legged navy blue trousers which were matched with a stark white corset top.

Keller played with simple yet architectural silhouettes, showing an oversized blue top with V-neck and white shorts with gaping pockets. She also presented two navy blue dresses with pleated skirts which featured straps which were tied in bows on the shoulders. While a cute navy and cobalt blue long-sleeved baby doll dress also featured a floaty pleated skirt. Towards the end of the procession, a playful flair was evident in the use of retro-inspired floral prints in blue and dark yellows which appeared on jumpsuits, cropped cotton trousers and a peasant-style dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline.

Though a marigold coloured silk dress with frothy layers and oversized bows on the shoulders and a dark yellow suede dress with a huge pocket and matching belt had to be standouts.

In typical Chloe fashion, models wore minimal make-up and hair straight, though Keller did include some accessories in this collection, including the Faye backpack and personalised key charms which were worn on long chain necklaces.

Following the Chloe show, Carven unveiled their spring ’17 line, with designers Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud opting for a youthful vibe.

The show featured a belted lilac minidress, handkerchief hem miniskirts, vivid violet PVC jackets and paisley flocked red and blue trousers. The duo added edge through the inclusion of chokers with buckles and black leather peep toe booties.

Paris Fashion Week continues on Thursday with shows from Balmain and Isabel Marant.
