“Chloé Attitudes”: An Exhibition Marking 60 Years for the French Fashion House

Late last week, amidst the excitement of Paris Fashion Week, a Chloé retrospective opened at the Palais de Tokyo, a newly renovated art space in the city of lights.  The exhibition, entitled “Chloé Attitudes,” marks the 60th anniversary of the French fashion house, which has been led by nine notable creative directors including Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo. French socialites, actresses, and fashion-types flocked to the opening party, but two particular attendees – Lagerfeld and Gaby Aghion, Chloe’s 91 year old founder – were the talk of the evening. The exhibition, which runs through November 18, was curated by British Historian Judith Clark.  Clark was the first to attempt to amass a complete archival collection that adequately represented the brand’s rich history, however she found that many iconic Chloé garments were no longer available. As a result, she organized the exhibition thematically versus chronologically, and included the strongest pieces from each of the past creative directors’ collections.
