See by Chloé

The See by Chloé team used three key terms starting with “p” to describe the new Fall collection: pretty, preppy, and party-ready. Those words not only described the lineup, they also spoke to the carefree nature of the diffusion brand in general. This season, Clare Waight Keller and co. put a youthful spin on typically grown-up fabrics such as pied-de-poule tweed, which was blown up and shown on flirty drawstring miniskirts and hooded bomber jackets. Meanwhile, a delicate Chantilly lace with a gold foil finish was cut into sporty sweatshirts, wispy slips, and thigh-grazing shifts that looked modern accompanied by a faux fur collar and basket-weave loafers with a slight David Bowie vibe. The faux fur incorporated throughout—on a plush, melon-colored chubby and shearling effect toppers—looked like the real deal (without the luxury price tag, of course). Other playful highlights included basic shirtdresses and button-ups with sequined, trompe l’oeil accents, as well as easy silk separates featuring a “galaxy” print inspired by one of Karl Lagerfeld’s original patterns for the French fashion house from the early eighties. All in all, a very energetic and wearable outing from SBC.
