All the Buzz in Fash­ion

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - COVER LOOK -

Nat­acha Ram­say-Levi worked along­side Ni­co­las Gh­esquière at Ba­len­ci­aga and Louis Vuit­ton for more than a decade be­fore she landed the cov­eted gig of Cre­ative Di­rec­tor at Chloé. She has been de­scribed by the press as a cool “Parisian It girl”; one whose youth­ful en­ergy, cre­ative at­ti­tude and quin­tes­sen­tial French out­look left enough of an im­pres­sion on Ge­of­froy de la Bour­don­naye, the Mai­son’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, to hire her for the role. Ram­say-Levi made her mark with a de­but full of cut­ting-edge pieces that ad­vanced the once-boho vibe of Chloé for a new gen­er­a­tion of women. Ro­man­tic blouses and knit­ted sweaters were ei­ther be­decked with ringlets or dec­o­rated with eye­lets that provided a fu­tur­is­tic glint, while sportif cropped trousers were elon­gated with snake­skin-printed boots. As a nod to founder Gaby Aghion’s birth­place, a se­ries of ruf­fled dresses were printed with Egyp­tian hi­ero­glyph­ics— each one sure to find its way into the wardrobes of to­day’s mod­ern aris­to­crats.
