Chloe Fall 2012 Runway Review

It’s hard not to swoon every time a Spring 2012 Chloe ad pops up with those to-die-for long striped panel dresses Clare Waight Keller designed last season for her first outing after succeeding Hannah MacGibbon as the creative director for Chloe. This season, she continued on that track delivering looks so covetable, her collection will surely be one of Fall 2012’s best.

Done in a beautiful palette that mixed light neutrals with pastels, the standouts included an oversized bomber jacket and the corresponding longer version that opened the show, a cape coat, textured knit sweaters,  and separates embellished with applique lace flowers.

What made this collection such a standout is that it’s far-reaching appeal makes it commercially viable, but yet nothing about the collection felt restrained, or worse, boring.
