Luxury fashion has become overly industrialised, so Chloé is expanding the number of its products handcrafted by independent artisans. All are made with the highest savoir-faire, using quality materials and techniques that cannot be mimicked by machinery, only mastered by the human hand. Chloé Craft promotes a return to craftsmanship and supports the creative value of each artisan through the exceptional limited edition pieces they create. Each Chloé Craft design is embossed with a signature spiral symbol.
A drawing by Chloé creative director Gabriela Hearst comes to life as an exceptionally engineered fabrication: soft suede cut into geometrical patches is joined together using a hand crochet technique.
Scallops – an emblem of the Maison – are hand crocheted in recycled multicolour cashmere and then linked one-by-one into a fish scale pattern. Some of the garments made using this technique took hundreds of hours to complete.
