See by Chloé
January 14, 2014 New York
Clare Waight Keller likes to have fun at See by Chloé. With their eclectic styling and whimsical patterns, her first two collections for Chloé's secondary line appealed to girls with attitude who aren't afraid to mix things up or stand out from the crowd. For Pre-Fall, that sense of playfulness came across in vibrant novelty prints including quirky foxes and artichokes, which were splashed on silk separates like wispy tie-neck blouses, pullovers, and relaxed trousers. Grounding those personality-packed pieces were Prince of Wales checks that added a slight English sensibility to the lineup. We especially liked the look of a cute pair of overalls in the pattern. Echoing the main Chloé line, there was also a couple of strong blanket stripe outfits. This was a sweet collection, with a bite—right on point for SBC.
