Sexy 70's at Chloe - Paris Fashion Week AW11

Hannah MacGibbon has done it again and delivered a collection that is full of signature pieces synonymous with the Chloe girl – ponchos, dungarees, denim and super-wide trousers. It is a classic Seventies look with a modern attitude that makes us proud to know that a British designer was behind it. 

The big story of this collection was snakeskin. It was printed on soft, chiffon blouses, paired with suede and leather panels on jumpsuits, dyed and knitted into dresses and even bucket-shaped leather bags had snake’s faces for clasps.

A bold colour palette also added a new dimension to the brand, with slashes of red and green, mint and grey and a rainbow of blanket kaftan. Mixed textures were also key, with leather, cashmere and knits all blending together.

MacGibbon has reinvented Seventies clich├ęs – giving previously frumpy shapes sex appeal and teaming classic shapes with modern lines to provide an instant makeover.
