“A barefoot attitude.” So said Clare Waight Keller of her resort collection for Chloé. She achieved the mood beautifully via relaxed, sporty silhouettes with a chic undercurrent. Case in point: A range of wide pants, some with deep vertical pleats, some gathered slightly at the ankles. Though nodding toward Katharine Hepburn, these skirted screen-gem retro in favor of modern snap. One inviting look paired a sturdy pink wool crepe jacket with knee shorts. Elsewhere, Waight Keller tweaked the classic trench for double duty. Hers came in two pieces, a bolero over a long vest, and in numerous versions, including taupe leather and striped denim. For evening, an appliqued black skirt swung sporty, while gowns with bandeau bodices offered more fanfare sans froth.
