No, I will take Natacha Ramsay-Levi's Chole over this any day. Even the bar is so low nowadays, this collection belongs to NYFW at its best!
She only has 2 months so I gonna cut her some slack, maybe next collection we'll see her full vision for the house. But that vision doesn't looks too promising. She turning the most Parisian house into another New Yorker.
I just wish her talent matches her audacity.
Missoni X Desigual X blanket parade...where´s Chloé??
I hate the fact that casting agents add one “plus size” model and think they’ve checked the diversity box. Real diversity would be actually have a solid diversity in body shapes, race and looks but a girl can dream
Oh my God, I tried not to be biased because it's the first collection by Hearst for the brand, but I can't. Gabriela has the mindset of a customer, not a designer. She literally used the strongest Natacha's prints for the ugliest pieces in this show. I have to say that's an achievement to destroy their appeal, the radiophonic prints from FW18 collection are incredibly strong and beautiful in a striking, modern way. Moreover, Gabriela really thinks that she'll run away with those awful pieces and accessories just because she's into sustainability.
As a whole, this collection feels completely irrelevant. It's like a mix of her dull aesthetic and watered-down Loewe. Fun fact: in one video she's talking about careful picking the colour palette for the cashmere pieces. At the same time, they look like striped bathroom rugs from the '90s. The accessories, the reason why she was hired, are horrible. I get that she took some repurposed pieces, but it's not enough to create someting truly desirable.
My biggest problem with this collection is that Gabriela doesn't understand the brand she's been working for. Chloé is about certain attitude yet Hearst made the same clothes as she would produce for her eponymus brand and they have literally no attitude at all. That's not a good sign. It shows how limited she is as a designer.
Bunch of forgettable clothes with no vision whatsoever.
I like some of the dresses but then seeing those parka-patchwork-things destroys the impression completely.
This is a disaster. So dweeby and unappealing, where's the luxury? Who wants to look like an old hippie lady who lives in a van? The shoes and bags are horrendous.
I had very low expectations from her but even worse than what I could expect.
Is this the 'Gabriela in Paris' - the new Netflix special!?!? Costumes by Patricia Fields X Pottery Barn bedding collection
I agree with everyone that this collection feels TOO American for a brand like Chloe, I only like the two leather looks with the multi-colored patterns.
There are some unfortunate pieces like the sloppy ponchos with the quilted-down collars and patchwork jackets with the long sleeves just scream amateur fashion school project.
There were moments when I thought I was watching a Coach show.
everything looks just wrong, really really disappointing
Well. I guess we do have to cut her some slack for a quick turn around on the debut collection....
BUT judging by what we see here. I really cant believe she turned Chloe into another eat-pray-love detached from reality upper east side brand.
This looks like a Gabriela Hearst collection. So far, there is no distinction between her eponymous line and Chloe. I wish she would’ve expanded on the recycled outerwear and prints.
Also, I feel bad for Paloma this season. These designers keep throwing her in evening dresses and making her walk in the cold lol
I just hope that there’s no full look policy to save this mess!
This needs a bit of a VP touch.
I’m lost for words!
I hope Isabel Marant will take advantage from that and snatch the Chloe clientele!
what a dump !
The most sustainable thing you could do with these clothes is burn them and start from scratch, dear Gabi...
It looks like a diluted version of Natacha's collections (the cut of some of the dresses are very NRL) and maybe that is why I don't exactly hate it. The set, casting, and styling was nice. But it makes me question why they booted Natacha in the first place. The shoes and bags are not desirable which I thought was the main point of bringing Gabriela on. The bags in particular look like bags from the mid-2000s boho era...but even less appealing.
I like a couple of looks and respective silhouettes, but that’s about it.
I also agree with @JohannesL, feels very NYFW.
