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.

The luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter partnered with six popular designers and several celebrities to celebrate the International Women’s Day. This holiday is on March 8 and we have a strong feeling that this time it’s going to be a special one. With the many changes in the industry, including the #MeToo movement, women are finally speaking up. And the campaign that Net-a-Porter launched with Ganni, Off-White, Stella McCartney, Chloé, Bella Freud and Rosie Asoulin is another way to support this positive changes.
Each of the six designers got to create a special shirt that features their own view of female empowerment and bravery. It’s a limited-edition capsule exclusive to Net-a-Porter. Although celebrities are already rocking these tees, the good thing is that you can also get them because they are available for sale. All of the profits will be donated to an organization that has been taking care of women survivors from war since 1993. The Women for Women non-profit has helped half a million females from many countries around the world.
Chloé’s empowering T-shirt was designed by their creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi. She introduced a minimalist design, white tee with a statement small pocket. The pocket is embroidered with golden female silhouettes. Bella Freud decided to decorate her white tee with a striking neon saying that claims “Love for You”. The designer’s initial idea is to spread love and support through fashion. Stella McCartney’s T-shirt features a “Thanks Girls” slogan.
“Recognizing both the universality and individuality of women was behind much of what I wanted to say with my first collection at Chloé. This is what drew me to using a Cycladic totem of femininity, a symbol dating back more than four millenniums yet still timeless, as a pendant necklace. I wanted to translate this message for International Women’s Day, repeating this symbol in gold thread on the pocket with a matching metallic ring piercing through the sleeve. Together these details represent the life-giving force within all women.”- said Natacha Ramsay-Levi.
For the occasion, the online retailer also collaborated with several celebrities who strongly support and raise female empowerment. Nicole Kidman, Taraji P. Henson, Dakota Fanning, Viola Davis, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Zoe Saldana took it to Instagram and expressed their support for the campaign.
Fashion has been used for many different causes so far, but celebrating and empowering women might be the most significant one. After flaunting black dresses at the Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards, celebs are now once again involving fashion in their fight for equality.
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 Céline 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…it’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.
Born in 2001 at the helm of Stella McCartney, See is Chloé’s little sister launched to aim at a younger consumer base. Although a young, See by Chloé is more sophisticated and classy than most of the brands that target millennials.
For Pre-Fall 2018 the ultimate See by Chloé girl is set to travel to Berlin’s underground. You’d think she’d go all the way edgy, but the gallery girl likes to keep things classy with a dose of a hippy vibe. Consider her style as a fusion of high fashion and worthy thrift shop finds. See by Chloé is for explorers who like to have fun. They can dive into their romantic side with the charming floral dresses and explore their wild side with relaxed silhouettes and fun cuts.
See by Chloé offered a range of playful dresses you can take everywhere from a stroll around town to a dance night. There are ruffles, florals, asymmetric hems, and everything girly and bouncy to keep up with your confident step. In fact, ruffles were a star of the show in the See by Chloé Pre-Fall 2018 collection. Everything from blouses, dresses, and skirts had different types of ruffles that added life to the designs. At times on sleeves, at times on hems, these decorative elements infused the collection with a dose of femininity.
The long tops had a central spot in the Pre-Fall 2018 See by Chloé collection. The fashion house paired knee-length or longer blouses with flared trousers that gave a strong ’70s vibe to the looks. The dress-like tops added dimension to the ensembles and offered new ideas for layering in 2018.
As we said earlier, See by Chloé is not a typical millennial brand, but you’d see some streetwear trends here and there. See by Chloé kept the brand’s logo mostly undercover except in the chic mini clutches that featured “See By” with huge letters on the front.
Some of the ensembles were spiced up with long belts left to hang on one side, a trend that dominates on the streets thanks to Off-White‘s industrial belts. Different types of keys were added to bags, jeans and used as necklaces, which is a trend that debuted on the runway shows during the Fall 2017 fashion month. Other than these few elements that took cues from the latest trends, the collection carried a unique story with its own tone and expression. It’s always good to see one-of-a-kind stories on the fashion scene.

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.
