Chloé Unveils Festive 2023 Collection Giving A Nod to Iconic Archives

In anticipation of the holiday season, Chloé is set to enchant fashion enthusiasts with its festive 2023 collection, drawing inspiration from the Maison’s storied archives. The collection pays homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, Chloé’s former Creative Director, specifically channeling the spirit of an iconic Fall/Winter 1983 design featuring a rhinestone-studded arrow on a black jersey dress.

This festive lineup introduces a contemporary twist to the shimmering arrow motif, along with two other emblematic symbols associated with Chloé’s rich history. The embellished guitar, originating from Lagerfeld’s Spring/Summer 1983 design, and the oversized ribbon bow, a signature from Phoebe Philo’s Fall 2004 collection, take center stage in this holiday capsule.

The arrow motif, once revitalized on a black column dress for actor Maude Apatow at the Lagerfeld-themed Met Gala 2023, now graces ready-to-wear pieces, bags, shoes, and jewelry. Leading the ready-to-wear offerings are black textured wool-crepe evening dresses, a single-breasted wool-crepe tuxedo, and a shirt with a dramatic arrow down its center, all adorned with hand-embroidered bead and rhinestone arrows.

Accessories showcase the arrow motif on limited-edition black leather Penelope bags and Oli line shoes, featuring crystal embellishments. The intricate embroidery on these accessories requires 15 to 22 hours of craftsmanship per piece. Additionally, the festive collection introduces the embellished guitar as a key motif, seen in a black viscose-silk velvet mini dress, a crepe-cady shirt, and a cotton T-shirt.

Bows, the third festive motif, bring a romantic touch to the collection, gracing wool silk-satin dresses, tops, trousers, and appearing on Oli sandals. Velvet or rhinestone-traced bows also inspire a delicate brass jewelry line.

In a nod to metallic elegance, the collection revisits key shoe silhouettes and bags in a subtle metallic silver colorway, promising a captivating blend of sophistication and style. The festive collection, a harmonious fusion of nostalgia and modernity, will be available in Chloé boutiques and online at Chloe.com starting November 2023. Get ready to immerse yourself in a celebration of Chloé’s timeless design legacy this holiday season.
