Chloé, a brand which has long epitomized the glamor of the Parisian woman, debuted its Spring 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week. For this season, the house led by creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi builds upon the creative concept of a fashion nomad, ever so slightly weather-worn by the whipping winds of the Moroccan desert.

In accordance with the brand’s aesthetic ethos, the latest collection’s color story remains grounded in earthy, ceramic neutral tones. Interspersed between the teracotta shades are a number of looks that utilize design techniques like patchwork stitching, along with bohemian-inspired prints like carpet jacquard and ikat. Citing “hippie modernism” a major creative influence for this season, Ramsay-Levi balances the eclectic and far out with fashion-forward silhouettes and modern styling.

It’s impossible to comprehensively critique a Chloé collection without considering accessories. Looser cuts on dresses, kaftans, and pants are held at the hips by knotted rope belts, complete with rich, gold hardware that has become a signature, Chloé calling card. From layered necklaces, to delicate arm and ankle bands-the polished, French brand is masterful when it comes to accent jewelry that elevates a look.

Through its latest runway show, Chloé has all but strengthened and established a well-formed aesthetic vision. Rooted in a strong sense of the feminine, Chloé is inspired by its bohemian brand heritage for Spring 2019.
