THE FIRST DAY BACK after being away is always a flurry and today is exactly that–so much so, that it actually feels like a Monday. And with that, what better way to begin the week than with the Chloé Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection? Designer, Clare Waight Keller, brings a touch of bohemian romance that we have seen at quite a bit of recently, [most notably at Alberta Ferretti and Marchesa], along with pure, billowy prettiness, balanced with a little tomboy denim. In her own words, “The starting point was fabrics that tell stories, particularly ‘folkloric’ textiles like the encrusted birds in cheesecloth, but I wanted honest, direct shapes. I liked the idea of denim, that it can be used raw or washed and it becomes personal to the wearer—it is immediate and honest. I wanted to have an idea of workwear as well as the flou, which was about volume and expanded from that densely packed fabric, crepon georgette. I wanted that one amazing shape that just hung off thin spaghetti straps.”
