Coming from people who relish every and any opportunity to throw on a coat, Chloè‘s revival of the blanket coat is welcomed with open arms. Hello comfort.
For Pre-Fall 2014, Clare Waight Keller played with the ol’ blanket, morphing it into gorgeous capes, short jackets and thick scarf like wraps. The pieces were trimmed with thick piping and gave way to pockets of patch-worked fluffy fur.
This heavy wool was met with the typical frivolity of any Chloè show which manifested itself in chiffon frills and ruffled skirts. Hemlines took the form of rounded cascading waterfalls, paired with very thick-soled mule resembling footwear.
Special mention must also go to the above the knee, thigh skimming boots.
So much glorious, glorious outerwear. It’s all very London.
