Chloe on Wednesday sent out a romantic, feminine collection made up of rustic pieces borrowed from the closet of a manly man.
Oversized, boxy coats in shades of camel and apricot were belted high on the waist to create an hourglass silhouette, while pronounced shoulder-pads lent a roomy blouse a ladylike touch.
Designer Hannah MacGibbon paid homage to the French label's 1970s heyday, delivering a smattering of feather-light dresses with lacy collars and low, drawstring waists. But mostly the winter 2010 collection was made up of pant looks.
Gathered, paper-bag waisted trousers in washed silks were cinched with belts and cuffed above the ankle for a distinctly postdiluvian look. Shorts with the waiste gathered and cuffed were paired with soft blanket coats with leather finishings and thigh-high pirate boots.
Luxury details, such as braiding and rhinestones, abounded: The straps on a pair of black velvet overalls sparkled with oversized rhinestones, and a pantsuit sparked with gold studs. A row of bows crept down the sleeve of an asymmetrical blouse in creamy washed silk.
Chloe chairman and CEO Ralph Toledano praised the collection as beautiful, saying it had attained the goal of making women beautiful.
MacGibbon captured "the DNA of the brand, the femininity, the elegance, the sensuality, the attitude," Toledano told The Associated Press in a backstage interview.
MacGibbon, a Briton who in 2008 became Chloe's third designer in as many years, declined to speak to the media about the collection, her second for the house.
The collection notes said she had aimed to create "an effortless and uninhibited attitude."
