Chloé's Leather Mini Dress

Wander off to the late Sixties with the leather mini dress by the hand of Chloé’s Clare Waight-Keller. Her last collection for the French house was stocked with nostalgic references, drawing inspiration from the Beatles classic: Yellow Submarine.

A room full of renowned journalists, prominent buyers and big influencers, yet Waight-Keller looked ever at peace with her decision to leave Chloé after six years. For her last collection - which was spot on if you ask us - for the French fashion house, she found inspiration in the Beatles film 'Yellow Submarine'. And while jolly tunes and psychedelic features may be at the forefront of the movie, her collection was a more mature interpretation of the concept of 'escapism'. The visual trip of the 1968 iconic film, with journeys through the Sea of Nothing and the Sea of Time, serves its purpose as a grateful background for the Chloé designs that rise to the occasion.  

Enter the short cut dresses. Our eye caught one in a brown leather fabric with a shiny finish that reflects the light perfectly. The garment has a black front zipper that adds a certain meaning of practicality to it and a plunging V-neckline that exposes the femininity that is exemplary of the creations of Chloé. The playful shape of the mini dress embodies the free spirit of the end of the 1960's. This winter you will pair the dress with a colourful knit to keep you warm or an exquisite silk blouse to juxtaposition the fabrics. Clare styled the model with a multicoloured top with a hint of mustard that was completed with bell sleeves, an elegant bow and a delightful manic pattern. The brogues shown with this look will surely be sold out as soon as we can add them to our shopping cart, but other styling ideas include a white boot with a blocked heel or a pair of crisp platforms.
