Paris: Although it didn’t break any new ground, creative director Clare Waight Keller’s debut Chloe collection was graceful, and seemed to seamlessly pick up where her predecessor Hannah MacGibbon left off earlier this year. As a starting point, Keller looked to what has worked for the house in the past, like delicate fabrics, cosmetic shades and boyish shapes, then offered multiple variations of each concept. Newness came from subtle tweaks in silhouette, such as deepened necklines and narrowed shoulder seams, and of-the-moment add-ons, like overskirt attachments. –Whitney Kessler
