Chloé Resort 2012

Do you remember where you were when you heard that Hannah MacGibbon was leaving Chloé? I was sitting next to a fellow D&M and die-hard MacGibbon fan in the fashion design computer lab. "When I become the creative director of a huge design house," she said, "I'm going to dedicate an entire collection to Hannah, one with lots of snakeskin." I wished her luck.

I love a muted pussy-bow blouse as much as the next girl, but I'm actually quite interested to see what sort of aesthetic Clare Waight Keller will impose come Fall, especially as far as knitwear goes. But for now I'm absolutely captivated with some of the looks from this resort collection. My heart skipped a beat when I saw that long, dreamy floral dress accented with a belt. And those strapped cognac shoes? I want them. Now. My other favorites are the series of blue and green pieces, especially that flowing emerald dress. I was also surprised by the sweatsuits that didn't really look like sweatsuits. My first instinct was to scrunch my nose in disgust, but I think the wide-pant silhouette and gold-button detailing reminded me that I shouldn't be so quick to pass judgement.

***I spy a snakeskin clutch. Just sayin'
