>> Shortly after Yvan Mispelaere, who designed Chloe's Spring/Summer 2007 collection, defected to work under Frida Giannini at Gucci, Chloe has finally announced a replacement for Phoebe Philo. Paulo Melim Andersson, the new creative director, comes to Chloe after being the design director of Marni for seven years. I have to say, I hope he points Chloe in a direction with his Fall 2007 collection -- it seems like Chloe's been stuck in the Phoebe years (all the babydolls, anyone?) even after (and ever since) Phoebe left.
