Natacha Ramsay-Levi staged her Chloé show within the monumental courtyard of the Palais de Tokyo. On three massive screens erected at the foot of the Palais de Tokyo, live footage captured her models making their way to the runway.
Her collection was largely built this season on elements introduced in previous seasons, shapes and cuts were similar but with a new updated image.
‘’Things take time. We need to repeat things before we understand them. When I look at fashion, sometimes I only start to understand the point of view of a designer in the second or third season. I think it’s important to be committed to what you do’’, she said. The soft, summery colour palette gave both a fresh and bold image to this new offering.

Like Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior, Ramsay-Levi rallies behind women artists that are often little known, and deserve a broader platform. This season, she homed in on the late Corita Kent, a religious sister, artist, designer and educator whose artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.
‘’The graphic silkscreen works of American artist Corita Kent ebb and flow throughout the collection as moments of urgent visual poetry writ large in colour. They epitomise the season’s innately ‘collaged’ spirit, where an accumulation of Chloé symbols becomes a rebellious act of femininity performed. Amongst multi-layered planes of colour – washed neons, bleached neutrals and warm mineral tones – Corita’s artworks are printed, knitted and woven into garments and accessories, epitomising the mixed-media approach to silhouettes and surfaces throughout’’, stated the show notes.
