S/S 18 Influencer Show: Chloe

An astute and assured debut collection from Natacha Ramsay-Levi at Chloe saw the new designer tap into the house’s archive, and give it a formidable signature twist.

These are clothes girls will want to wear, and the high street will want to emulate. From the flounced prairie dresses with rock-chic grommets and studded trims, to the painted folklore-inspired placement patterns and pony-club embroidered velvet tailoring, this collection was the happy sum of its parts.

The cropped stitched jeans and waistcoat combo had a boyish gamine charm, played off perfectly against a parade of micro-floral, ruffle-hemmed dresses. Meanwhile, lean tailored blazers, slick snakeskin pants and easy but narrow-cut silky shirtdresses added the modern classics factor. 

Boxy smock tops had the breezy boho vibe we have come to expect from this label – now given a punchy junior kick as Ramsay-Levi teamed them with sharp pleated leather miniskirts and the buckled pointy boots we can expect to see on the high street any day soon.

There were subtle luxe touches too in the velvets and silk jersey, supple leathers and snakeskin, played out in a quirky palette of manila, greyed peach and pistachio and black and white with a punch of teal and red. For party girls, there was a closing parade of lustrous fabric-blocked bias-cut dresses in spangled sheers and silky jersey.

It was an auspicious debut for Ramsay-Levi’s S/S 18 accessories too, with covetable mini quilted multi-strap bags, laced open-toed shooties, knuckleduster rings and a standout pair of multicoloured python buckled boots.
