Chloe Fall Winter 2012

My feelings for this Chloe collection are extremely lukewarm, possibly even chilly. It started off nicely, with a few great pieces of outerwear and daytime separates, but then it went downhill. Leather skirts with elastic waistbands and colour palettes in the worst shades of lemon and peach will not translate nicely into real life, and some of her statement pieces looked like the kind of thing you’d sneer at in a secondhand store (bad multicoloured sweaters, anyone?) So I’d say this was pretty disappointing, even though I’d really like one of those pale pink coats.

I love…

I loathe…

these colours together. They don't look good on the catwalk, and they won't look good in real life.

elastic waistband skirts. Like the colours mentioned above, this only works on a catwalk, and is really unflattering on a normal person.
