See by Chloe – Pre Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-To-Wear

See by Chloe – Pre Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-To-Wear

For Resort, the See by Chloé précis name-checked Quadrophenia, the film inspired by The Who’s rock opera of the same name, and Daisies, a feminist masterpiece of the Czech New Wave. The dress and devil-may-care attitude of their women lent this collection its mod insouciance and silhouette, which stopped just short of feeling retro. A-line skirts and dresses served as a foundation of the lineup, a base for all the great layering going on. That’s become something of a See by Chloé signature over the course of several seasons; in addition to being a simple step toward Parisienne offhandedness (even for those who have never seen the Seine), it adds a sense of richness to the clothes and anchors the sweetest of prints, like Resort’s darling daisy embroidery scattered across skirts and dresses.

Sweetness was a deftly handled mood here on the whole, as it’s been with Clare Waight Keller’s collections for the main line. There was the sumptuous palette of washed-out blush, apricot, powder blue, and dove gray, and a white zip-front jacket with trompe l’oeil scalloped embroidery down the placket, which could warm the heart of even the stoniest New Yorker. It wasn’t precious, just parfait.
