Chloé Unveils Its Festive Collection For 2023 Inspired By Karl Lagerfeld’s Archive

This holiday season, Chloé looks to its rich archives for a festive 2023 collection, taking inspiration from an iconic Fall/Winter 1983 Chloé design by the late Karl Lagerfeld, the Maison’s former Creative Director. 

The collection sees a rhinestone-studded arrow embroidered across a black jersey dress, the festive collection is animated by a modern twist on the shimmering arrow motif.

Also starring in the capsule are two further symbols associated with the Maison: the embellished guitar, which finds its origins in a Spring/Summer 1983 Lagerfeld dress design for Chloé; and the oversized ribbon bow, which cinched the waists of multiple looks in the Fall 2004 collection designed by Phoebe Philo, and became a house signature during her tenure at Chloé between 2001 and 2006.

Traced in rhinestones and crystals, the arrow motif that once energised Lagerfeld’s jersey dress galvanises the festive collection. Originally reinterpreted on a black column dress for the actor Maude Apatow, Chloé’s guest at the Lagerfeld-themed Met Gala 2023, the embellished arrow now appears across ready-to-wear, bags, shoes and jewellery. 

The festive collection will be available in boutiques and on now.
