For Chloé’s RTW collection Fall 2011 designer Hannah MacGibbon had Python on her mind. Wow, never have I seen so much snakeskin in one show! Oversized coats and trousers, fitted (shirt) dresses, coats, skirts and even a jumpsuit. All in snakeskin leather or printed with a snakeskin pattern. This outburst of colour and soft leather is really remarkable for Chloé. Their allover trademark 70’s feeling,  the perfect slouchy sihouettes , the impeccable tailoring and, of course, the colour beige are still present. But, this Fall 2011 collection is very opposite from the self confident Chloé-Woman in toned-down colours we all know so well! Looking back at Hannah MacGibbon’s  pre-fall collection she already started using colours and prints (bright yellow and allover paisley’s) but this season she really took it a step further. The Chloé woman has become more seductive and colourful than ever. Very Sexy at very fashionable indeed. “You’ve come a long way, Baby !”

Now about the accessories, that’s another story. ‘The Phyton’ was present, but in much more compromising amounts. Shoes with just a heel in snake skin, bags with embossed snake in one colour or only used as embellishment like we’ve seen many times before. Obviously Chloé’s accessories will be the mega-sellers of this collection, just as they were meant to be.
