Inspiration Chloe. Inspiration Phoebe.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 10:27 pm

For somebody like me who’s not working in fashion, the months between fashion weeks, seasons, summer and winter collections can be very quiet. Almost boring. I feel like I’ve seen all collections from each and every designer already a couple of times. So I went back to older collections, which keep on inspiring me. One of the best (in my humble opinion) is Phoebe Philo’s collection for Chloe, SS 2006. It’s so crisp and fresh.

(Please excuse my poor “photoshopping”, haha.)

  1. That’s the beauty of Phoebe Philo’s designs – they stay fresh and timeless. I think if she showed these for next season it would be just as inspiring as a few years ago.

    • totally agree! i was even thinking of having the one or the other piece tailored here (i’ve never tried any of the tailors and there are so, so many and so cheap).

  2. This is such an amazing collection. Clean lines, fresh look, classic colors.

  4. You know that I LOVE looking at old collections? It’s one of my little obsessions.
    That’s also why I have in my home the best (in my opinion) numbers of Italian Elle (my favorite fashion magazine) from 2008 on (and at home in Italy I even have something from the period 1997-2000, I call it the Fendi Baguette era, don’t know why XD)

    Recently I also discovered that this can be very useful for one thing (and I think I’ll write a post about it): looking at what was cool 5 years ago but still looks very beautiful today shapes your idea of classic and tells you of what are the pieces and the colors that will never go out of fashion. It’s something I do a lot lately, in my new wise-shopping mood 🙂

    I totally agree with you on the beauty of this collection.
