Natacha Ramsay-Levi presented her Fall Winter 2018 collection for Chloé, describing it as “The frustrated desires of the bourgeoisie.” The collection is the dual vision of a woman as she is now and who she wants to be. The main focus of the lineup was the 70’s, with fluid sensuality through deep earth tones, assertive slashes and a 70s stained glass print.
Fluid silk blouses worn deshabille, plunging to show bare skin. Ankle boots with a kick of edgy hardware. High-waisted trousers with a sensual, jodhpur-esque curve at the hips. Loose trenchcoats and sensual sweater dresses with cosy ribbed high-necks offset by shark bite peepholes at the ribcage. Party dresses more boudoir than red carpet, with lingerie lace and undone ribbon ties. “For me, the Chloé girl is very French but for a lot of people she is very English – because all the designers were,” Ramsay-Levi recently told Vogue, referring to the trio of British women who preceded her: Clare Waight Keller, Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney.
