Chloe Autumn Winter 2011

In a season full of surprises, I suppose it shouldn’t shock me that many of the brands I love are putting on shows I loathe. Chloe is one of those. While I know I complain about skinny pants all the time, this doesn’t mean we should all be wearing low-slung, baggy pleated trousers. There was just way too much wrong with this collection, and not enough right. I sincerely hope that this isn’t Hannah MacGibbon’s last Chloe collection, as she will leave on a low note. But then again, it wouldn’t surprise me if they sack her, as she’s clearly shown some major weaknesses with this show.

I love…

I loathe…

a very disappointing opening look for Chloe. A stale, neutral colour palette, and really terrible trousers.

baggy leather trousers. Why is everyone showing them this season? Are they trying to appeal to the Man Repeller?
