Chloe Resort 2014


Chloe Resort  designer Clare Waight Keller has captured chic and casual in this  resort collection. 
 vogue review:
“Resort has always been a transitional season where people travel,” said Keller. “So the clothing has to be very relaxed.” And those sandals, which are probably the closest thing you can get to barefoot while still keeping some distance between your soles and the sidewalk, seem to have been crafted with Keller’s own impending family holiday to California in mind: “No, I don’t surf,” said the designer with a laugh as she gestured to the gilt bracelet ankle straps, which were inspired by surfboard foot straps. “But my children are learning!”
This being a ChloĆ© collection, it wasn’t all about menswear and beach sports. Keller’s eveningwear was unabashedly feminine, like a coral floor-length dress with the house’s classic ruffles at the shoulders, or a strapless bandeau top and languid skirt, held together with an obi-like belt. “There’s a fine line between being tailored and relaxed,” said Keller. But, as has been the case these past two years since she’s been at the helm, it seems she’s finding the balance.
