Paris Fashion Week: Chloe's drab line of 1970s-era canyon chic
For her new spring collection, the impulse toward rustic chic was a timely one. And there was undoubtedly a whiff of those stylish, 1970s-era ladies of the canyon in cream gauze wrap dresses, tiered, pleated chiffon gowns, oatmeal-colored blanket capes, stirrup pants and buttoned-up shirts, worn with flat brown sandals.
But many of these clothes crossed the line from utilitarian to dull. And the suffocating heat in the venue didn't help people stay awake.
