Chemena Kamali is no stranger to the house of Chloé. For the designer, it all began on Avenue Percier, the headquarters of the French house in the chic 8th arrondissement of Paris. The German-born designer worked there under the guidance of Phoebe Philo before spending six years alongside Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent.

She openly acknowledges her obsession with the house from the moment she became interested in fashion, “When you grew up in Germany in the Nineties, Karl Lagerfeld was really an icon, a national hero,” she told Vogue. “I was really drawn to what he did at Chloé. As part of my undergraduate course, I had to do an internship. I just wanted to go to Chloé—because of Karl, and also because it was the start of Phoebe [Philo]’s time there.” It was thus a very personal collection, inspired by her enduring relationship with Chloé, that Kamali brought us for her very first runway show for the house.

Chloé has always placed women at the center of attention, with looks featuring bohemian accents characterized by flowing fabrics, fluid cuts, and an ultra-feminine spirit. This is exactly what Chemena Kamali delivered. In her own way, she summoned the love affair she has had with the house for the past twenty years to the runway. The Chloé of the late 1970s is synonymous with a natural, sensual, powerful, and effortlessly free femininity. All of this was reimagined and updated for the Chloé woman of 2024.

5 key trends from the Chloé Fall/Winter 2024-2025 runway show:

The spirit

Comfort and freedom of movement have been the hallmarks of Chloé ever since the house was founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion. Chemena Kamali naturally drew inspiration from the 1970s, a spontaneously eccentric era, to design her first looks. The result was effortless pieces punctuated with a 1970s flair, reimagined bootcut pants in denim and leather, and organic colors that ranged from blush beige to pine green, all sprinkled with a sensual attitude.

A Western theme is inspiring the fashion designers of the moment. After Pharrell Williams for Louis Vuitton, Chloé subtly unveiled its own take on the Western trend, a way to exude the idea of a sensitive and free femininity. Leather jackets and pants were adorned with rows of fringes, coats became like wraparound blankets, fluffy, and enhanced with checkered prints.

While Chloé is synonymous with comfort, there were also sexy, breezy dresses in transparent textures that graced the runway. Sensual looks that revealed some skin without showing too much, were all enhanced with romantic ruffles and pleats. Some were micro, while others, designed in lace, were worn nonchalantly, with the lower part of the dresses intentionally tucked into the tops of the thigh-high boots worn by the models (Doutzen Kroes, who gracefully closed the show, was the perfect example!).

Trench coat

A direct descendant of raincoats, the trench coat was given a fresh look at the Chloé Fall/Winter 2024-2025 runway show. Draped over the bundled-up models, this object of desire said goodbye to its officer image for good, gaining its fashion credentials through 100% femininity (and sexiness!). Here, it was elevated in vinyl and simply worn fastened at the neck and enhanced by a golden necklace.

Reimagined clogs

According to Chloé, clogs should be at the top of our fashion wish list this season. Proof of this was seen all over the show’s runway, which saw the shoe take on the appearance of ballet flats. The result was enough to skyrocket its cool quotient with just the right amount of retro charm.
