PARIS (AP) — Designer Gabriela Hearst showed off her green spirit as she staged her Chloé show at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday in a famous Paris greenhouse. Yet in the bare sands of Parc André Citroën, it was stars like Demi Moore and Maria Sharapova, instead of flowers, that seemed to bloom.
Here are some highlights from Thursday’s Fall/Winter 2022 ready-to-wear shows.
CHLOE’S TEXTURE-RICH ECOLOGY
Uruguay-born designer Chloé has made ecology the focus of her Chloé tenure so far. Thursday’s show was no exception to the sand-swept interiors of a Paris greenhouse and designed in the colors of the climate crisis. Bright tangerine orange, vermilions and reds against black evoked a forest destroyed by fire, while pale hues of whites, creams and beiges symbolized melting glaciers and drought. The sleek silhouettes – which play on slightly contrasting textures – are also inspired by the environment via the cinema. The muse of Franco Zeffirelli’s 1973 film “Brother Son, Sister Moon” chronicling the life of the patron saint of environmentalists spawned puff sleeves, simple lines, scalloped patterns and form-fitting knits. There were some big moments, like a cut-out black leather dress with ethnic discs on the torso, but the aesthetic seemed to lack energy at times. Was it perhaps because of the energy devoted – admirably – to touting its small ecological footprint? Once again, thanks to Hearst’s eco-conscious mantra, Chloe was able to proudly say that she had achieved her annual target of 56% low-impact materials in the ready-to-wear show.
