Accompanying the Chloé retrospective that opened at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo during S/S 13 Fashion Week, a small archive debuted online examining the playful prints, patterns, surface embellishments and fabric treatments that have come to define the brand’s legacy thus far. An undoubtedly small slice of the archival pie started under current creative director Claire Waight Keller a year ago, this teaser collection is part of a Chloé A-Z that examines seminal moments and aesthetic influences throughout the label’s 60-year run to date.
Below, a series of our favorite pieces, accompanied by select images of the actual Chloé. Attitudes exhibit on view through 18 November 2012.
