The Cutting Edge of Chloe

“How does it feel to be finally in charge at Chloé? ”Oh, it’s heaven!” a warm respond of a tired but gladdened 38-year old blond British designer, Hannah MacGibbon. As we all know, she assisted Phoebe Philo from 1997 through the label’s red-hot early-halfhearted days to heat back up again after some tepid seasons.

Here she comes, let’s bow our head and praise our Chloe Princess as she enters the kingdom this winter season.

Sassy, sexy and ultra cool, Chloé is a paradox of both feminity and romance infused with a Parisian street-creed edge.

To my Chloe Girl whose urban tedium never faded her lust for life with an aristocratic past and to the present wild side.

“One day, she is in a fox, beaver and coyote jacket, insouciantly worn with a billowing musketeer silk blouse and stovepipe pants whose very proper English morning stripe is scrolled with very un-proper gothic blooms. The next, she is feeling for something that is free, loose, and flowing – a rose griffe print silk dress that skims over her body before languidly flaring out towards the floor. If she needs something to throw on top, she’ll grab the lean, nipped-shouldered wool coat with velvet buttons that she borrowed from her Kensington nanny, the coat she could never be bothered to return. Yet no matter what she wears, this Chloé girl is never without her jewel-like compact bag, in shiny leather rimmed with python, which hangs from her shoulder by a multi-chain strap. Super pointed spike heels in patent leather and crocodile sharpen up the look.

There are amply proportioned, masculine-look overcoats, with folkloric side slits, in classic English herringbone or check tweeds, slipped over bejeweled organza and mousseline tutu skirts. Victorian-inspired narrow cuffs and a high neckline adorn a lace cocktail dress… Lace or gazar polo shirts and cropped, straight fit boyfriend sweaters are the crucial underpinnings… And add this season’s essential Lurex leggings or floral glitter tights, and the whole look really rocks.

Chloé’s long-standing tradition of richly imaginative prints is continued. There are many ornate, opulent patterns—border-edged Pallenberg paisleys, bold medallions, and naive lace designs that look like they have been collaged from the furnishing remnants of a once sumptuous, now abandoned manor house. The color palette is like a jewelry box being opened on a darkening winter’s day: amethyst, rose, and evergreen, contrasted with black, biscuit, smoke grey, and midnight. “This season, the CHLOé girl belongs to the magpie school of looking good. She is a little vagabond, a little boheme, in spirit, and in her life” says Paulo Melim Andersson, Chief Designer of the house.

This is truly an evidence that MacGibbon holds a key to the It-ness, the spontaneous, non-intellectual-girl knack that is central to Chloé.

The Life of Bottega Veneta

Every designer shoe seems to have its own footprint. They have their own target market and exclusively unique style. Italy is full of legendary fashion houses that in every corner, there are fashion designers waiting for you to step down the runway and make a loud smash for their names.

Shout for joy and praise for glory, an Italian designer was born in the name of Bottega Veneta way back in the year 1966. This legendary fashion house was started as a family business of luxury leather accessories based from Vinceza, near Venice in the region of Italy, as its origin. Two renowned people became the founders of this great fashion house namely Vittorio and Laura Moltedo. They developed a tradition of selling quality products from its hand-woven leather bags, belts, and shoes with no outside signature or logos, making the functionality and classicism as its product signature.

The combination of design and comfort made Veneta shoes very popular among other designers. Its timeless style has earned the company loyal and fashionably discerning followers from the famous faces. German-born Tomas Maier, the creative director, took the helm in 2001 after the house of Gucci bought the brand and revived the flagging brand by injecting a more modern feel and reworking the traditional woven leather signature. Maier was able to imbue the brand with a dash of modernity while retaining the classical, exclusive feel. The brand also makes ready-to-wear clothing for men and women possessed timeless and ultra-luxurious looks that gave Veneta enough credits to the fashion industry.

Tips on Pairing Wedges

As we have seen around, women fond of wearing variety of shoe styles from stiletto to flats and of course women’s wardrobe will not be completed if wedges are not included in the list.

Definitely, wedges are fun and they become irresistible at any season. They are extremely fashionable and versatile choice of most women as their shoe preference. For those women who don’t normally wear heels could gain enough height if they wear wedges. We are talking this matter, but what exactly is a wedge heel?

Commonly the shoes heel sits under the heel of the foot; in contrast, wedge heel runs under the whole foot from the back of the shoe to the middle or at the front. Simply, it has a wedge shape but with exception, not all wedges are high heels. It ranges from low to high. The shape and the length of the heel determines whether wedges or not.

Like other shoe styles, Wedges has also Pros and Cons to be consider.
