Hannah MacGibbon’s Chloé girl is casual and no-nonsense, preferring a flat leather sandal to the towering experiments in gravity that other designers have offered this season. With natural hair and minimal makeup, the models looked comfortable in the relaxed fit of the clothes. Boyfriend blazers were plentiful, shown as part of roomy pantsuits or paired with ankle-grazing skirts for a new long-over-long proportion. Luxe leathers were coordinated into the light palette of dusty pinks, camel, taupe, chartreuse and white, showing up as cuffed overalls and clean-lined tap shorts. Swingy capes and coats — the best of the batch in muted chartreuse with leather straps and pockets — were a highlight; as at Marni, MacGibbon seemed to channel American designer Bonnie Cashin with her simple shapes, leather trims and, in one case, a turn-key closure. A head-to-toe patched denim look helped reinforce the laid-back tomboy attitude of the collection. While the stirrup pants and a few versions of the poncho seemed a bit dated, the pieces were chic and wearable, with bits of sensuous drapery and attention to detail softening its menswear theme.
