Dressed in confidence
Gaby Aghion created Chleo in 1952. Her first Spring/Summer 1958 collection was presented at the Café de Flore. The Chloé woman rapidly became a symbol of a somewhat unique femininity, modern and mellow, in refined shades and loose lines, in silk blouses and romantic dresses, giving her every moves an effortless sense of lightness.
In the 60s, Aghion recruited young minds whom she might be able to share her esthetic vision, such as Maxime de La Falaise, Gérard Pipart, and a certain Karl Lagerfeld who became head of the House in the 70s.
Along with the 00s came successively Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo and Hannah MacGibbon. Clare Waight Keller has been Chloé’s artistic director since 2011.
The House’s collections come infused with freedom, self confidence, and a sense of natural movement and choice. Chloe’s wardrobe is one of the most versatile around.
