Expanding upon the Autumn-Winter 2021 collection, Chloe has made a purpose-driven commitment to positive environmental and social impact the focus of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection.
Fifty-five per cent of the ready-to-wear offers have utilised lower impact materials such as organic silk and recycled cashmere, with Chloé’s Creative Director Gabriela Hearst focusing on holistic, innovative development within the collection. Alongside this, 15 per cent of the collection is being manufactured by WFTO fair-trade guaranteed members, Akanjo and Manos del Uruguay.
Taking inspiration from pre-Raphaelite portraiture depicting romantic scenes, the collection expands and corresponds to the Arts and Crafts movement from the turn of the twentieth century, which manifested into the impact of the Industrial Revolution.
Relating this to today, humanity currently faces two major events: the climate crisis and the digital revolution. Chloe seeks for a movement to emerge, something of a neo-Renaissance, which envelops both the creative and the scientific to achieve an outcome through choice, rather than default.
When discussing the new collection Hearst said, “The fictitious but utterly delicious state of being in love. I couldn’t start this journey at Chloé without love being the emotion as a driver.”
The collection includes bags made with 80 per cent lower-impact leather sourced from tanneries certified by the Leather Working Group (LWG). The same can be said for Chloe’s new collection of shoes, LWG leather is used as well as deadstock jersey for the Kamy Line.
For their denim line, Chloe will only use deadstock fabrics, to reduce waste and use what has already been produced, even better the denim is fully recyclable. Available in eight different fits and two washes, the new collection has a pair of jeans to suit everyone.
The new sustainable, eco-friendly Chloe collection will be available to purchase in Spring 2022.
