Chloe exhibits its 60 years of creation at the Palais de Tokyo from September 29th to November 18th 2012.
For the occasion, Chloé will reedit sixteen iconic pieces which will be for sale in stores from February 2013 on. Among them, the «violin» dress of Karl Lagarfeld (1983), the «ananas» tee-shirt of Stella McCartney (2001) and the «embrun» jersey-made dress (1960).
The exhibit explores the creative process of the brand. The silhouettes express the original vision of Gaby Aghion, the founder. The vision of an elegant and laid back garde-robe.
«Clothes at the crossroads between sewing know-how and freshness of know-be», says Clare Waight Keller, creative director. And to add : «they seek out/go to an independant woman who embraces the challenges of a modern life».
Dresses and silk crepe ensembles from the 70’s are contrasting with the graphic and coloured print from the 60’s. One finds also surrealist and crazy thematics from the 60’s.
