The imaginative trip of a girl from Miami Beach through Las Vegas to Palm Springs, Calif., inspired See by Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller for spring. The signature icy pastels of South Beach, the bleached tones of the desert and the bold hues of Vegas converged in the lineup, which was infused with a feminine, free-spirited vibe.
Silhouettes were ample and breezy — an array of fluid dresses and tops, worked in light, solid tones, as well as varied patterns, from a colorful maxi floral motif to a print combining micro stars, pineapples and palm trees. Ruffles gave a romantic twist to most of the pieces, while bright yellow buttons enhanced the playful appeal of a flared overall crafted from multistriped seersucker. In contrast to the languid look of Waight Keller’s effortless-yet-sensual cotton dresses with plunging necklines and slits, a safari-inspired canvas frock with utilitarian pockets had graphic appeal. And she showed denim in lively washes, including a lilac shade that gave charm to flared pants and a raw-cut skirt.
