Natacha Ramsay-Levi might just be the most glamorous creative director to ever head the house of Chloé. Since her debut at the helm, her collections have been chockful of eye-catching prints, fascinating patterns, different silhouettes, and more. Under her tutelage, the Chloe woman isn’t just cosmopolitan, she’s also courageous in styling herself in a unique yet contemporary (and slightly bohemian) way. For Pre-Fall 2019, Ramsay-Levi explored the complexities of softness and hardness, translating this as the perfect representation for the juxtaposition between masculine and feminine tropes. The softness was reflected in all of the light and airy pieces, from the romantic Renaissance-esque blouses to the floatiest of her floral chiffon creations. The hardness, on the other hand, was all about tailoring. A series of military-style jackets, flared trousers, and streamlined tunic dresses gave a certain toughness to this otherwise feminine offering. Additionally, knitwear was also added to increase the luxury factor. And yet with all these and more, Ramsay-Levi also managed to incorporate snakeskin and Persian-inspired prints, adding vibrant pops of glamour into the mix. The Chloe woman has definitely evolved under this young up-and-comer, and the more she grows, the more the label becomes a powerhouse in fashion.
