Chloe Spring/Summer 09
With all the Art Basel excitement last week I nearly forgot to post about the event that kicked the week off - the Chloe Spring/Summer 09 show held at the Ridinger's Miami Beach manse. It was a quiet and calm event, a bit intimate, and overall a nice way to kick off the madness of Basel week. As for the frocks on display, I detected a strong desert/safari theme running through the show. Maybe it was the neutral color palate (lots of washed corals, sandy beiges, creamy whites) or the awesome Birkenstock-like sandals the models wore with many of the dresses. The simple, unadorned hair and natural make-up also added to the damsel-in-the-dunes feel.
