Chloe F/W 09

A parade of beautifully cut blanket coats and pea jackets at the top of the ChloƩ show for Winter 09 gave masculine class to a collection that was the second effort by the British designer Hannah MacGibbon. Masculine/feminine tension was gracefully played between the sporty outerwear and light as air girly dresses and frilly blouses combined with soft pants underneath.

There was a peaceful cohesion to the collection with flesh and earthtones and a surprise sequence of ivory pantsuits and dresses at the end.

As always, accessories are a strong point at ChloƩ: check out those sparkly sandals, high suede boots, and roomy bags!

It is good to see a young designer settle into the right groove so quickly!
