runway- 7 Oct
Explore the Chloé Spring-Summer 22 Runway Show
The latest collection from Gabriela Hearst is "all about Love".
Situated along the banks of the Seine with a view to Notre Dame, this season's runway provided a picturesque view of Paris, a beautiful backdrop for Gabriela Hearst's latest collection. With even greater intention, the Maison is working to limit our environmental impact. For Spring-Summer 22, we are increasing our use of lower impact materials (up to 58% of the collection vs 40% in Winter 2021, versus 55% on Spring 2022). Gabriela's vision spans dresses adorned with metal talismans sourced from deadstock jewellery findings and components to hand-cut vegetable dyed leather patchworked into a dynamic composition taken directly from one of Gabriela’s drawings. The gemstones found throughout the collection are meant to convey healing properties and are all naturally sourced. Around 70% of the handbags leather offer is sourced from Leather Working Group-certified tanneries. On foot, the soles of our new Chloé Lou line are made in collaboration with Ocean Sole, a social enterprise that upcycles flip-flops, which have been collected and found washed-up along the beaches and waterways in Kenya. This season, Chloé is also expanding the number of our products handcrafted by independent artisans by introducing Chloé Craft, which will appear as a spiral symbol embossed on garments. Other non-for-profit collaborators and social engagements for SS22 involve Akanjo, a World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) guaranteed member producing some of our knotted shell necklaces and based in Madagascar; Agir Pour La Santé Des Femmes (ADSF), an organisation that provides vulnerable women across France with healthcare access and support by supporting their cause; and Les Bâtisseuses, a network that trains women refugees in ecological construction to help them integrate into society.
