Paris Spring 08: Chloe

I thought this was a really cute collection, for some reason there was a lot of ambivalence about it, but I think it perfectly captured the Philo/McCartney Chloe era while carving a out a new path with Paolo Melim Andersson. The prints were really wonderful and weren't overtly feminine. He's definitely bringing a "rougher" kind of attitude to the Chloe girl.
As for the accessories, he is right en pointe. Those heels are so tough and sexy, but they're kind of weird which I think is part of the Chloe aesthetic. The geometric-origami crocodile clutch is sure to be one of the it-bags of the season. I'm absolutely in love with it.
