DOWN TO EARTH
Paris: Where last season’s collection was airy and ethereal, Hannah MacGibbon’s current offering for Chloé was more grounded and earthy. Leather and standout denim pieces lent a tactile element, and the ubiquitous use of dyed lizard and snakeskin prints conjured images of the desert rather than the club. Design details like piecing and whip-stitch binding added a crafty element to pieced skins and technicolor poncho. 70s silhouettes remained strong, with wide-leg pants and midi lengths in heavy rotation. While the snakeskin motifs began to feel repetitive, the overall look was on-trend, with vibrant, saturated colors and appealing separates.
