For Chloé’s Fall 2020 collection, Natacha Ramsay-Levi decided to embrace the world of art. Artist Rita Ackerman gave the brand access to five of her pieces from the 90s and early 2000s. Those prints were worn in the clothing, handbags, a shawl and even as patches.
But the artsy references didn’t stop there. Afterall, this collection was meant to be a about a community of creative spirits. The soundtrack for the show was a series of poems read by Marianne Faithfull, one of them being Lord Byron’s She Walks in Beauty.
This was definitely the strongest collection Natacha ever made for Chloé. It did not only resonate with the brand’s spirit but also had beautiful takes on their essential and signature pieces, like romantic dresses and flowy blouses.
Besides the signature pieces, the design team also impressed in the details. The dresses were romantic, but not very obviously sexy. They had a lightweight feel, occasionally an open back and a slightly transparent fabric. The jewelry was so delicate and, yet, very powerful. And let’s not forget about their new handbag: the Darryl.
The styling team also made a great job. The mixture between very delicate and feminine pieces with strong ones was amazing (those combat boots!). Another highlight was the way they mirrored the bracelets, and the pins on shirts, blazers and even belts.
