Nothing like discovering great designers while watching reruns on Fashion Television before bed! Chloé Comme Parris is a Canadian label created by sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon who resorted to creating their own designs when they grew tired of not being able to find what they wanted in stores. With the goal of creating luxury items that can be passed down through generations, the sisters aim to make people feel unique in their clothing (source).
Watching their Fall/Winter 2011 show I found I was drawn to this line for two reasons. The first being the silhouettes and structure of the garments were, for the most part, uncomplicated and had a romantic feel to them. I could envision myself wearing the pieces in my everyday life, everything look comfortable yet luxurious at the same time.
The second was the juxtaposition of the textures and colours used in each piece. The soft shapes clashed with the cold, stark colours. The jewellery was no exception, metal and glass went the overall conflicting aesthetic. The line has an edgy almost gothic feel to it, Chloé Comme Parris is a label I'll be keeping my eye on.
