Chloé‘s Pre Fall collection for 2013 takes its cues from 60s mod chicks. The perennially chic label showcased beautifully crisp, tailored geometric lines in cropped, oversized jackets, 60s shift dresses and drainpipe skinny-cropped trousers for its new collection.
The music of the swinging 60s is also referenced in the collection, with abstract musical notes printed on blouses and dresses. Although Clare Waight Keller has channeled Gallic charm perfectly, she is staying true to her British roots with echoes of mini skirt-wearing, King’s Road-dwelling, Vespa-riding 60s dolls throughout.
Keller has received praise from reviewers for the collection as the pieces are practical and functional, as well as fashionable, achieving the perfect masculine and feminine balance. The styles in this collection echo the 60s shapes and geometric patterns that will be huge for the coming year.
