The Chloé collection is one I look forward to every season and AW13 does plenty to live up to expectations. Beautiful fabrics exude quality and sophistication whilst bold blues, reds, and stripes add a feeling of confidence to the looks.

The cuts are stunning as ever, particularly for outerwear, with a slightly harder edge than you’d normally see in a Chloé collection. The inspiration is said by, designer, Clare Waight Keller to be of a girl emerging from uniform to develop her own style and sense of independence, and this really does shine through.

At the same time though, the fresh faced models and simple elegance of the garments maintain a sense of purity that couples beautifully with the movement of the lighter materials and fabulous polka-dot tutus.
