We are sensing an imminent threat to the beleaguered credit cards of Williamsburg Bedford Avenue girls, those not quite trusted funded but aspiring creative hipsters, in the form of Chloé's Spring 2009 collection. While it hasn't quite reached Phoebé Philo status thus securing her the paychecks of the genuinely well off darling consumers but her collection of girly gushing is sure to appeal to the not quite there yet either hipster set. A host of jumpers and romprs, scalloped detailing, bows, apron and baggy big silhouettes just say "ohh, me, huh I guess I am girly cute even if I do hide it well."
And how do hipster darlings get away from girly? when they need to slut it up at night? Well they add lamé of course! We say give Hannah another season to get up to speed with Chloés original consumers who genuinely had the means to be louche, but until then we think there is still a little space left on our brethren's credit cards.
