These Days

I found Chloé's newest collection to be very charming. It kind of reminded me of The Royal Tenenbaums, in a weird way. The color palette was so cozy: all comforting browns put with muted shades of peach and mint. Then, they mixed the colors with recognizable shapes in the first part of the show for a nostalgic, almost melancholy, effect. In the second part they used more delicate fabrics and it was more lady than schoolgirl but I think it still looked kind of fey. All in all, I rather liked it and could find little fault. Although, I did dislike the shots of electric blue that they tried to introduce here and there. It didn't look good, and it upset the effortless fluidity of the show. I think the blue things would've been pretty on their own, but they weren't right for this atmosphere. And yeah, I know everybody thinks Chloé is a one trick pony, but I happen to like this particular trick. All in all, I kind of adore Chloé and you should too stupid.


Oh, and p.s.- What was up with the sensible shoes? That pissed me off a little too. But otherwise, yeah, pretty great.

Style.com was really down on this collection, saying it wasn't polished or cohesive enough for a luxury brand. I don't know... I kind of agree (it was sort of marc by marc jacobs-y), but really, I thought the clothes were lovely.

P.S. I apologize if you knew all that already.

Yeah, I always read the little blurbs. And maybe it was true, but I was just blinded by my love for Chloé, because denial is just how I roll yo. ;P

Oooh I like those too...especially Jethro!
It would be doubly awesome if you were a Jethro Tull fan.

That's why I'd name my boy Arlo, cuz I'm so obsessed with Arlo Guthrie
