I have begun to see denim more and more in stores. I use to not care for a complete denim look very much, If I can be honest here, I use to think an all denim look was just bland looking. Lately I have seen what I would almost call a”rebirth of denim” as it’s being made into more feminine lines and silhouettes, and all around more flattering designs, giving the trend a softer feel. I picked up this cute little denim dress with ruffle sleeves and thought “I think I can do this”. So I tried it on and felt… well, cute! So I have found a similar dress, amongst a few other trendy denim pieces that are worth giving a try. As always, I have taken the work out of it for you and coordinated the whole outfit so that all you have to do is click and wait for the arrival. You’re welcome.

After 10 years as a creative director of Céline, Phoebe Philo is leaving the fashion house. The word about Philo’s departure was out since a while ago, but the designer denied all the rumors. Her last work for Céline will be the Fall 2018 collection, that will showcase in March.
“Working with Ce‚àö√â‚àö√ñline has been an exceptional experience for me these last 10 years. I am grateful to have worked with an incredibly talented and committed team and I would like to thank everyone along the way who has been part of the collaborations and conversations‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë¬¨‚àÇit’s been amazing.’- the designer stated.
After her arrival in Céline, Phoebe changed the whole perception of the fashion audience for the brand. She managed to transform it into one of the leading fashion houses with recognizable and trendy aesthetics. Referred to as the “designer who knows what women want’, Philo has her fair share of successes and victories in fashion. She is solely responsible for redefining some of the biggest stereotypes in women’s clothing. Thanks to her innovative approach, she changed so many of our perspectives of what is fashionable and classic. The chic camel coats, work pants and masculine outwear is a part of our everyday life to this extent, all because of Phoebe Philo.
Before Céline, Philo worked 8 years in Chloé, from 1997 to 2006. Phoebe was the creative director of Chloé for five years, since 2001. She took over the leading position in the French fashion house in 2008. Until then, Céline was nothing but a forgotten brand that didn’t rank high in the fashion industry.
Philo grew to be one of the most influential designers thanks to her broad-minded thinking and innovative creations. She has a huge impact on the fashion we know today. Lead by her motto “for women, by a woman’, Phoebe is responsible for many of the trends we can’t live without. Her strongly accented sense of mixing feminine and masculine cuts changed the way women dress. We all followed her immaculate vision of minimalism without even knowing it. That is her biggest power as a designer and a trendsetter. She made the same trends apply to all ages, sizes, and races, which is an achievement worth a lot of praise.
Phoebe’s next move is still a mystery. Every single fashion house will be lucky to have such a genius as a part of their leading team. There is speculation that Philo will be taking over Christopher Bailey’s spot in Burberry. For now, she looks forward to a well-deserved rest from all the craziness going on in the fashion world.
Last night, Natacha Ramsay-Levi had her very successful Chloé debut. Natacha presented an effortlessly beautiful show for Spring 2018. The center of attention in her work were women, and what makes them feel good. She wanted her show to be all about the ladies and made a strong statement that instead of changing the woman, she will change the standard.
“What I love about Chloé is that it’s something very democratic and super easy to understand. You don’t need to be a fashion person to get it. There is no logic to it, other than that it looks good on her. I’m obsessed with girls. We’re trying to work with the personality of the girls. The look is a projection. You have the strength but you also have the cracks.”- Ramsay-Levi explained.
Chloé’s Spring 2018 collection was youthful and relaxed. The designs that Natacha created are chic, cool and boho. Most of the colors seen in the collection were neutral and calm. Brown, nudes, grays were in the center of attention, but in spite of that, the collection looked very vibrant.The loose dresses and jumpsuits in colorful prints are perfect for warm Parisian days. Natacha completed these looks with edgy leather vests.
The biggest fashion statement of the night was the cropped pants. According to Natacha, they are going to be big in spring. We can’t wait to see how all of our favorite celebrities will wear these cool trousers. Natacha teamed up with an Indian artist, who helped her on several designs. The mesmerizing embroideries seen on several mini dresses were a part of his work. Natacha got inspired by Karl Lagerfeld and his creations from the 60s, 70s, and 90s for these pieces from her collection.
And If embroidery is not enough for you, in Chloé’s new collection you will find sparkling sequins. These dazzling designs aren’t glamorous and fancy like you’d expect. On the contrary, Natacha designed casual sequined pieces. There were laid-back maxi dresses patched from different fabrics, and simple sequined tops paired with loose mini-skirts.
Chloé’s collection was a real heaven for shoe-lovers. They were so diverse and beautiful that it is so hard not to want them all. There was everything from pointed mules, combat boots, to the knee-high snakeskin lace-up designs.
Natacha can be proud of her first collection for the French fashion house. As an escape from all the glamor we witnessed during the Fashion Weeks, Chloé‘s offerings are a very refreshing thing to see.

The online luxury shopping website Net-a-Porter and the French brand Chloé have a close relationship. They have collaborated on 5 collections so far. Their latest collection was celebrated with an exclusive party on Wednesday night. Many A-listers and Chloé girls were there to mark another successful collaboration.
The house party with a theme “An Evening Under the Stars’ was held in a townhouse in Greenwich Village. The all-time favorite Chloé girls Olivia Palermo, Hilary Rhoda, Danielle Snyder, Casey Fremont and Clara McGregor attended the party. As expected most of the guests wore designs by the French brand. Dj Vashtie Kola entertained the guests as they sipped on their Aperol and vodka cocktails.
“How can we surprise and delight our customer and offer her something she can’t get anywhere else? We thought about the Chloé girl mixed with the Net-a-Porter woman, and what would really resonate while evoking the spirit of summer.’- said Alison Loehnis, Net-a-Porter‘s director, in order to explain the purpose of the collection.
The exclusive capsule collection has 26 pieces and it is the biggest so far for Chloé and Net-a-Porter. The clothes are in a light, bohemian style, perfect for the hot summer days. The main inspiration for the line was Ibiza in the ’70s. All of the designs are light and flowy, very modern and sophisticated. Some of the must-have dresses include a floral metallic one, a white chiffon one, and a cozy linen one. The accessories are just what we have expected, chic and boho-styled. The embroidered poncho is the go-to item for chilly summer days. The bags are very Chloé and unique at the same time.
There are also three new shoe styles. The bow-detailed leather sandals are available both in a flat and heeled version. Prices for the shoes range from $645 to $970.
“Ibiza and Pacha in the Seventies very much captures the brand’s bohemian spirit as well as the ‘feel good’ mood of the Balearic island. This capsule perfectly exemplifies Chloé’s feminine cool aesthetic and is our biggest and best yet,’ Holly Russell, senior buyer at Net-a-Porter, told the Telegraph.
This is the first collection for Chloé’s new creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi. The promotional video titled “Come Away with Chloé’ shows a major part of the exclusive collection and Julia Stegner stars in it. The designs are already available online on Net-a-Porter’s site.

The wait is over! Natacha Ramsay-Levi was officially named as Chloé‘s new creative director on March 10th, following Clare Waight Keller’s departure from the famed French fashion house earlier last year.
Chloé’s long tradition of female creative directors is thus remaining strong, with Natacha Ramsay-Levi being particularly proud of this legacy. “I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women,’ Ramsay-Levi revealed in an official press note. “I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a ‘look.’ ‘
Ramsey-Levi is thus following in the footsteps of acclaimed Chloé’s creative directors that, aside from Waight Keller, included Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney, Gaby Aghion and Hannah MacGibbon. As Chloé’s co-founder Aghion, Ramsey-Levi is a Frenchwoman too, which adds a romantic and nostalgic touch to her appointment, too.
Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s role, which includes being responsible for Chloé’s ready-to-wear clothing and accessory lines, will be effective starting from April 3rd, with her first debut collection scheduled for September 2017 during Paris Fashion Week.
A longtime friend of Louis Vuitton‘s creative director Nicolas Ghesqui‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üre, who sort of revealed her as being Chloé’s new fashion designer on Instagram earlier this week, Natacha Ramsey-Levi was working at Balenciaga when Ghesqui‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üre was at its helm, and was particularly busy creating staples for its pre-collections.
After 11 long years spent at Balenciaga, she moved along with Ghesqui‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üre to Louis Vuitton, were she worked at the French fashion house’s creative direction for women’s ready-to-wear ever since 2013. According to some sources, before joining Ghesqui‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üre at Louis Vuitton, Ramsay-Levi went on consult from brands such as Herm‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üs and Acne Studios, which means that her resume is even more eclectic than what we thought.
Meanwhile, at Chlo‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Ü’s headquarters, everybody seems to be extremely thrilled with the appointment, as Waight Keller’s departure was an incredibly heartbroken one and many were extremely worried about the house’s future, which is now definitely in good hands.
“I am particularly happy to welcome Natacha to Chloé,’ Chloé’s President Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye said via a press release. “Her extensive experience at two prestigious fashion houses and her creative energy will further expand the maison in Gaby’s vision: at the intersection of Parisian couture savoir faire and the youthful attitude of the Chloé girl.’
As for Waight Keller, sources close to WWD revealed she has another job lined up, which, however, apparently does not involve Céline or Burberry. Given the fact that WWD’s sources were right when they reported that Ramsey-Levi was in talks with Chloé back in December 2016, we bet we are definitely going to hear good news from Waight Keller in the months to come (or hopefully sooner).

Clare Waight Keller’s last collection for Chloe won’t go forgotten for sure, as the British designer waved goodbye to the French fashion house unveiling the Chloe fall/winter 2017-18 ready-to-wear collection that was all about strength, elegance and sartorial excellence.
Clare Waight Keller’s departure, which was announced earlier in January, marks one of Chloé’s saddest moments, as the designer replaced former creative director Hannah MacGibbon in 2011 and ever since then has never missed a chance to translate Chloe’s refined aesthetics into signature, must-have staples and accessories that helped the house gain fame and prestige even more. Her debut with the French fashion house came with her groundbreaking Chloe spring 2011 rtw collection, which was all about fluidity and androgynously feminine vibes, and now, after six frenetic and inspirational years, here we are looking at her very last runway show with Chloe.
Knowing that her departure was a heart-breaking one, and that her works were some of the most appreciated in the industry, for her final Chloe fall/winter 2017-18 runway show Clare Waight Keller paid homage to both her and Chloe’s legacies, as she not only brought back the notorious shell suit, but also celebrated Chloe’s standard aesthetics through and through.
“It was a punctuation mark at the end of what I’ve done here,” Waight Keller explained ahead of her show. “I didn’t want it to be a retrospective, I wanted to put a new point of view across. So I’ve touched on things I’ve loved over the years but at the same time I wanted to bring in something strong to end.”
Keller’s point of view on the fall 2017 season was thus transposed to four major themes, with the overall collection’s staples all exuding a strong mixture of Sixties, Seventies and Nineties vibes. First and foremost, she wasn’t afraid to play with colors. Featuring rainbow tracksuits, color-blocking patterns, ultra-vibrant shades and even rich pastel hues, the Chloe fall/winter 2017-18 collection was meant to be optimist, and so did it feel.
Secondly, Keller had definitely fun toying with proportions. The main items that were filtered through such an XXL lens were the sweaters, which looked like the coziest ones we have seen at Paris Fashion Week so far. The third theme was the dream array of pea coats Keller treated us to, which included some cool urban-chic staples in PVC, too.
Last but not least, not mentioning Keller’s iconic accessory items would be extremely unfair, as the acclaimed designer never misses a chance to charm us with some of the most anticipated seasonal must-have staples. For her Chloe fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection, the designer opted for stunning patent Mary Jane shoes and structured handbags, which will surely fly off the shelves in a matter of seconds, as usual.
Although Clare Waight Keller’s future career path has yet to be revealed, with so many fashion houses left without a creative director, we hope she won’t stay jobless any longer!

Although being Chloe‘s little sister, See by Cholé is the fashion house’s most independent daughter, with a strong fashion taste anyone could effortlessly recognize. For the See by Chloé fall/winter 2017-18 collection, fashion designer Clare Waight Keller decided to take all of the different motifs See by Chloé is known for, and upgrade them to their most fashionable version.
The newest See by Chloé fall/winter 2017-18 collection featured the same signature androgynous boho-chic style Keller made us fall in love with, which this time around got filtered through a more street wear-inspired lens that, in return, created appealing hybrids anyone could easily play with.
Like many other fall/winter 2017 ready-to-wear collections showcased during this fashion week, See by Chloé’s is also all about separates, even with the long dresses displayed focusing on mix-and-matching patterns and wearable figures.
All of the collection’s dresses exuded cool country-chic vibes that make it infinitely easier to not only transition from daywear to eveningwear, but to either go for a full boho-inspired look, or a more street-style-infused one. Among the many separates, Clare Waight Keller included cozy jackets to channel on a daily basis, the motifs of which subtly recall those of the dresses and shirts, whether it is through the colors or the textures used.
Shirts actually play this collection’s biggest role, as Keller decided to give her own version of pussy-bow blouses, here seen as more versatile unlike other couturiers’ proposals. Ruffled and relaxed in their lines, the pussy-bow shirts also set the mood for the line-up’s other proposals, which all reminded us of the Amish-inspired garments we had the chance to see at most of the latest New York Fashion Week’s runway shows (though the master at reinventing the Amish fashions remains Pierpaolo Piccioli with his RED Valentino fall/winter 2017-18 rtw collection).
High necks, rigid skirts, textured fabrics and roomy trousers often made their appearance throughout the line-up, recalling the androgynous-boho look we mentioned before. To harmoniously balance the clean-cut and heavyweight garments, fashion designer Clare Waight Keller chose to finish off most of her items with lightweight flared lines, as seen in the cropped jeans, bell-sleeved shirts and peplum cuts.
All in all, we could say this collection is specifically appealing for two main reasons, which will surely make many onlookers and customers head to the See by Chloé stores: the accessory line and coats/jackets.
As usual, Keller filled her See by Chloé line-up with tons of it-items to choose from, emphasizing the handbags and the tight boots this time around. With this little sister of Chloé’s mainly targeted towards a younger audience, all of the items featured fresher lines that could easily recreate the high/low look many millennials are looking for. The same goes for the coat line, which treated us to must-have, winter-approved items that make it possible for anyone to invest in timeless staples to wear in the winters to come.
