Paris Fashion Week: Chloe in need of a remix

March 8, 2011 |  9:56 am


The Chloe label's heyday was the 1970s, so it's understandable that designer Hannah MacGibbon keeps going back there.


Except this season, she didn't add anything new to the look. Snakeskin print shirtdresses, trousers and tie-front blouses were handsome enough. But like the colorful patchwork poncho and chunky heeled sandals, they seemed as if they could have come straight from a Melrose Avenue vintage shop.


Not even the bucket bags looked new. They were almost identical to the ones Coach did in the 1980s.
