In recent and refreshing news, Gabriela Hearst has replaced Natacha Ramsay-Levi as the Creative Director of fashion house Chloé. With the whirls of surprises this year has already brought with it, this one has us eagerly awaiting the gusto that Gabriela Hearst is going to bring to Chloé.
Gabriela Hearst, Chloé's New Creative Director
Born in Uruguay at her family-owned ranch consuming wind harnessed power and battery powered objects in her earthy abode, Gabriela Hearst is known for her vigorous faith in sustainability. Self-taught and self-made, she has intricately incorporated her goals for sustainability and her effortless understanding for women’s bodies in her work.
Hearst’s powerful vision of responsible and ethical fashion is not only inspiring, but an invigorating yearning – to witness everything she plans to do with the mighty fashion house. Her first collection is expected to be uncovered early on in the coming year, and we are anything but unsure of the vivacity that’s going to come with it.
Keeping in line with Chloé’s focus on true luxury, Hearst’s approach to fashion stirs a beautiful upcoming blend. She has a strong track record with leather goods, her top-handled, pouch-shaped Nina bag being a swift seller right from the time it was first unveiled.
Assimilating the methods or reusing, upcycling and creating purposeful fashion, we can already envisage Gabriela Hearst’s unleveled signature with Chloé.
Ironically and intriguingly, with Hearst’s early days at a ranch and Chloé’s signature horse print – this is a coalescence to cherish.
