>> Introducing a first look at Hannah MacGibbon for Chloe. This is new creative director's first collection for the brand since she succeeded Paolo Melim Andersson a week after he debuted his Fall 2008 Chloe collection. As you'll remember, Hannah worked closely with Pheobe Philo from 2001 to 2006 when she helmed Chloe, and the Philo influence is definitely palpable in the color palette, the filmy loose blouses, the city shorts.
I'm a little disappointed with this collection — too much Gap likeness, not enough wow factor. But I'll reserve judgment for the Spring 2009 collection. A couple more looks available here.
