The silhouettes look like icing on birthday cakes.

I can't say I am disappointed because I had no expectations for it.

This is just awful. So unflattering. Jelly shoes! Scallops. Ugh, my dislike for what I have seen so far is bordering on hate.

That said, there is way too much frumpiness in the skirts to make this Chloe. And the shoes are really ugly, I hate thong straps on heels!

But overall, I think this is a step in a better direction for the brand. I wasn't into Paulo's futuristic graphics and shapeless chiffons.
^i agree that these are very chloe! i'm loving them so far.
i use to love phoebe's designs to death and paolo came along to design what was very new and modern for chloe. not that they were bad, but i can't help but to miss the little touch of girlie vintage aesthetics that was clearly absent in paolo's designs.
how i wish they brought phoebe back for chloe too. judging from the few imgs of mcgibbon's work, maybe we're on the way back to the familiar chloe that phoebe created years ago. those metallic fabrics are definitely spot on for ss09. trendy and fashionably vintage!

The black dress with the bow at the back in #33 reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.

What is this? All the designers since Phoebe left don't really seem to know what to do with Chloe, or what exactly the Chloe woman is.

I must say I don't really know either.

I hate what I see so far!! horrible unflattering silhouettes, I hate those semi cicles on the coats, the proportions of the pants and shorts are bad.

I like the shorts, but everything else is so frumpy and unflattering. And those metallic pants are awful.

One word - fired. Did Christopher Kane secretly designed this? So Paolo wasn't that bad afterall. Wish he was secretly laughing how this collection sucks!!

It seems very unflattering and vague. I was hoping for vibrant, rich patterns and colour but this is just so dull...oh god the 'detailing' is hideous..
