Tim Blanks Revisits Stella McCartney’s Chloé Debut

-------

When Stella McCartney made her debut as creative director of Chloé, she was just 25 and still known more for being Macca’s daughter than for her design chops. Tim Blanks was on hand for her first show for the historic house, which featured not only two of the Fab Four, but a bold-faced roster of catwalkers, including Naomi, Kate, and Helena. Despite her tender years, McCartney managed to strike a balance between Chloé’s traditional French femininity and nineties Brit insouciance right off the bat. Over the course of her four-year stint at the brand (before departing to launch her eponymous line), McCartney proved herself far more than just the child of a famous face, resuscitating the label’s DNA and setting the stage for a victorious aughts under the eye of Phoebe Philo.
