Autumn 12

Ex-Pringle of Scotland designer Clare Waight Keller’s second season at Chloé was a sporty affair that both delighted and deflated. The collection opened with soft pastel tones that created a dreamy atmosphere, the genteel duffle coat and bomber jacket in dusky pink setting out Waight Keller’s intention to combine the casualness of English sportswear with the French penchant for more dressed-up pieces when styled alongside delicate blouses and full skirts. The offer was much closer to the pale chalk of Dover’s white cliffs than the ritzy style of Le Touquet across the Channel, and all the better for it – sporty won over snappy – but a frumpy multicoloured chunky knit, awkward below-the-knee leather bloomers and a slightly incongruous one-shoulder top and shiny skirt combo took the edge off the mostly clean, pretty and commercial show.
