Romance revival: Chloe SS13

Stumbling upon a fashion piece that truly makes your heart stop is continually wonderful - and not at all difficult, if the designs from Chloe happen to be present.

Always a favourite of mine, Chloe has reached a whole new level with their Spring Summer 13 collection, just in time for the French fashion house's 60th birthday. The collection has really struck a chord with my penchant for pieces that balance feminine shapes, modern tailoring and those beautiful little details that truly make them standout pieces. All in a beautifully balanced colour palette of creamy white, midnight blue-black, apricot, lilac, pumpkin and oatmeal. The designs weave all of these elements to beautifully craft the narrative of the modern Chloe woman. 

Creamy white dresses and tops with billowing peplum-style frills on the hem and sleeve; sheer mid-sections; origami-like folds and bold black and white prints.

Delicate white tailored blouse paired with intricate netting; wavy asymmetrical frills; pleated frill at the waist on a lavender playsuit.

Sheer cleverness; architectural netted fabric, pleated and frilly collars.

Oatmeal tailored separates; decorative white flowers; square and no-fuss silhouettes in the form of pumpkin tailored shorts and pants.

Edwardian frilled sleeves and collars; cropped wide-leg pants; ruffles and sheer pleated brilliance.

Midnight inky blue-black; sport luxe suit with metallic stripes; cream floaty layers; white with gold glitter stripes.

And to top it all off, the strappy high-shine metallic pumps are the perfect accessory for the entire collection. The forecast for Spring Summer 13 with Chloe is romantic, modern and refreshingly beautiful.
