Natacha Ramsay- Levi made her much anticipated Chloe debut bringing a fresh and edgy to the Parisian fashion House. She is the first French woman to navigate the brand. Karl Lagerfeld and a few British designers for example Stella McCartney and Clare Waight – Keller, now at Givenchy, helmed the carefree brand. It’s been associated with a fun loving pretty girl who loves fashion and being comfortable at the same time.
Chloe’s founder Gaby Aghion, ensured to infuse these values since the inception of Chloe back in 1952. With that ethos as a starting poing 37-year-old Natacha Ramsay- Levi created a collection that explored the past and heritage and found innovative ways with which she could leave her permanent statement to the brand – and ultimately making it relevant for 2017.
For example she took the quintessentially bohemian brand and embellished it with a few rock and edgy details inspired by her mentor Nicholas Ghesquiere. She also transformed the sequin extravaganza that defined this fashion week by recreating a modern Joan d’Arc. Delicate chiffon dresses, scattered ruffles while Victorian blouses were given a much needed fierceness paired with studded mini skirts, leather, lace, and experimentations with tailoring.
