The Chloé Spring 2017 collection celebrates the effortless simplicity of French style intrinsic to the Chloé girl.

Creative Director Clare Waight Keller looked to emphasize on a more  urban vibe. “I wanted to bring it back to the city. It was time to clean it up,” she said. Featuing an urban innocence, this collection was all about minimalism and relaxed lines, with warm pops of colors coming in slowly and in small proportions. It was both urban-chic and romantic, and also offered new intriguing takes on pajama dressing that are just mesmerizing.

The lineup’s abounding amount of feminine proposals was often offered alongside a few, yet quite distinctive, mannish staples with clean-cut lines. The menswear-inspired looks mainly consisted of revisited suits, often in total-black or just a white shirt to create dynamism, as well as oversized rompers.

Keller also playfully emphasized the waistlines, either via cloth belts or cropped tops. She did not solely focus on the waistlines, but rather chose to experiment with minimalism with oversized and layered cuts too. Oversized and relaxed garments were infused, with Expressionist-inspired floral embellishments even adding vibes that are more playful.

The Chloé Spring 2017 collection displayed coherent chromatic choices with monochrome patterns at the core of the entire collection, with a few florals, stripes and abstract patterns. Keller featured the more romantic, sensually naïve colors, such as pink, pastel yellow and bright white with black, off white, red and blue helping the staples get more cosmopolitan.

Cascades of sheer fabrics got utilized to adorn both the more innocent and the urban-ready garments, with even larger proportions of see-through fabrics baring the skin and creating an appealing contrast with the richly textured fabrics of the trousers and gowns.
