Paris: Oversized and often boxy proportions seem to be a growing trend for Pre-Fall, a direction Chloé echoed with bold wide leg trousers, cocoon overcoats and cozy ribbed sweaters. Plenty of texture and pattern warmed up these progressive silhouettes, including shaggy fur and checked flannel, while seasonal camel and cranberry tones popped next to touches of lemon and tangerine. Long sleeved, pleated silk dresses had straight lines that seemed fresh among the round shapes, but also remained in step with Chloé’s demure message. A few experiments with size were less effective, such as wide pants cropped at the calf, but overall the presentation consisted of solidly wearable wardrobe builders.—Nina Stotler
