Delicate fabrics, romantic touches of lace and flowing hair…these words easily describe the Chloe collection, yet also call to mind the beauty found in the works of the Pre-Raphealite Brotherhood.
Seeking to express the genuine and what was found in nature, the English artists banned together in the mid-1800s to reform art. Their romanticism and attention to form produced works steeped in classical imagery.
Just like the brotherhood, the designs from the runway include unstructured silhouettes, billowing sleeves and draping. Accented by gladiator sandals, the looks are reminiscent of classical Greek or Roman tunics.
Though steeped in the spirit of the ancient world, the collection shows how timeless classic forms can be.
