The invitation to the Chloe show was a bit of text from the book « Et J’ai suivi le vent » by French author Anne-France Dautheville, which talked about daring to go off and explore the world. Once at the show, another morsel of text from the same book was waiting on each seat. It celebrated the beauty of chance encounters made while on that trip.

Those who had the chance to travel to Paris and get to know the fall/winter 2016 Chloe first hand most certainly were the better for it. Designer Clare Waight Keller came up with a winning collection that effortlessly built on the codes she has set out for this house, meaning lots of great flowing, easy, ruffled maxi dresses and skirts, a kind of arts-and-crafty style of embellishments and an overall reverberation of chic 70s style.


Waight Keller expanded on those ideas literally this season by blowing up the proportions on many of her pieces so that poncho jackets, capes and shaggy coats all came in oversized varieties. She also did it figuratively by tapping into the idea in terms of traveling the globe. And for that you are going to need some stylish biker gear.


Not to worry Chloe, has got you covered with an assortment of buttery leather pieces. Top marks go to a fitted jacket with a racing strip along the shoulders that had a retro flair and the practical pants with zippers shooting up the legs, not to mention the sexy leather jumpsuit and tough girl overalls.


The fact that the book from which the quotes were pulled was all about its female author traveling to far-flung locations on her own motorbike brought this collection full circle in a very chic way.
