Decidedly very pretty ballet-inspired collection by Hannah MacGibbon. Seeing as she was inspired by classical ballerinas, this is hardly surprising. Chloé maintains this fresh beauty, effortless flowing style identity; MacGibbon carries on this tradition. While there is clear Chloé history in the flowing gauzy skirts, this is the furthest it has gone in the direction of dance. I like that she keeps the face and hair clean, presenting an almost clean slate for the clothes as that is also very ballet-like.
While there are some full out corps de ballet looks complete with tulle skirt, stretchy knit tops, and full ballerina flats, MacGibbon hardly presents a dance collection. There are minimalist pieces such as tightly streamlined long sleeve dresses in a beauty rich cream along with structured A-line coats in vibrant crimson. And MacGibbon doesn’t stop there: she presents sleeveless leather tops attached to controlled A-line skirts that fall just below the knee in black and camel. A staple I’m sure that Chloé lovers will snatch up. MacGibbon certainly provides plenty of camel for her camel-loving crowd. Moreover, the small rectangular box bags are a wonderful little touch. Gone are the days of the padlocked Chloé “It” bags. And I’m glad. These are modern yet timeless. Much more suited to aesthetic of Chloé.
