Chloé A/W17: Claire Waight Keller's fond farewell

The floaty long dresses that are the leitmotif each season and often resplendent in flowing chiffon were noticeably missing, but in their place were sweet little dresses that bore references to 60s and 70s, and looking like they belonged to Chloe’s younger sister.

Waight Keller described her collection as “Psychedelic optimism….the Chloé girl escaping down the rabbit hole….I wanted that feeling of escapism – in a way with the Yellow Submarine – finding different dreamscapes and wonderlands,” Perhaps this was a fitting description for her own onward journey through the futuristic looking glass.– Lizzy Bowring
