Clare Waight Keller's Spring 2013 collection for See by Chloé focuses on helping city dwellers meet the challenges of the season with a relaxed and casual ease. A concentration on movement means the offering is light, airy, and for the most part free of decoration. Suit separates cinched at the waist with loose bows created flatteringly long lines, while oversize quilted cotton jackets offered a cocoon of warmth from early Spring's chilly winds. A hooded lamb's leather jacket, chunky cotton sweaters, and a few thin toppers in technical nylon were also useful shields against the elements — but the collection wasn't all utilitarian. Even city girls need flirty cocktail dresses, and Keller answered that call with brightly colored silk georgette frocks that flutter in the breeze.
