Fall-Winter 2012/2013 collection
With her fine, captivating face and confident look, this season’s See By girl
has set out to be vibrant and radical. Freed from the main collection, she
display. Her attitude toward fashion is, above all, to not look like everyone
else, but rather like she wants. In her wardrobe, more urban than ever,
breathtaking sensuality takes center stage.
Supple fabrics flow with the body’s motions. The spotlight is on mesh,
transparent and ultra-fine, like a continuation of the skin.
The colors (lime green, olive green, light grey, taupe, white) reveal contrasts
of shadow and light. Here, everything is implied, not overtly stated. Even the
palette of black hues is luminous, never stark.
To be the most beautiful while conveying nonchalance – this is the See By
Mesh, an object of desire, is seductive. In the daytime, sweaters and knits,
worn over a jean jacket or leather top, replace coats. At night, flowing mesh
becomes a sexy evening gown, accompanied by a jacket with a masculine
twist and a pair of boots for a unique, off-beat look. It’s fashion rewritten in a
whole new way.
Coats are adopting a new strategy this year, with oversized shapes and
deliberate cuts. As if to reinforce this perceived blend of hipness and
refinement, the shoulders are slightly slack.
Last of all, pants. This vital constituent of Chloé DNA comes in three
Urban, easy chic pants, a tad loose at the waist and slightly more tightfitting
in the legs.
Cropped worker pants, in dyed or pinstriped cotton, that reveal the ankles
and accentuate boots.
Second-skin pants, radicalized by a graphic print and long zipper that runs
the entire length of the leg.
A wardrobe enhanced by a selection of ultra-tight and effective
accessories, including a pair of distinctive pointy boots made of leather and
suede (in black, camel, light grey and mocha), their thick, wide heel
featuring a metal adornment.
Handbags are simple and free of superfluous details. Like this bowling bag
with its rounded edges and this ultra-supple clutch – reminiscent of a lunch
bag – that can be rolled up and tucked under the arm. The essence of style.
