It is the end of an era for the 65-year-old Parisian fashion house Chloé. After six years, the brand’s creative director, Clare Waight Keller, is bidding farewell. It was a bittersweet moment felt throughout the fashion industry when Keller delivered her final bow in Paris on Thursday morning.Keller helped characterize the Chloé woman as we know her today: someone who exudes femininity and class, with a charming, bohemian sensibility. It is Clare who helped define Chloé’s sartorial identity as the go-to luxe, effortless, boho brand for its steady stream of pastel-colored, sheer, billowy, balloon-sleeved dresses, printed silk pussy-bow blouses, and ’70s style wide-legged trousers.Keller’s last collection at Chloé played on her strengths and delivered blush-colored blouses layered under secretarial minidresses made of wool and leather. White sheer blouses with lace embroidery insets were paired with loose, baggy trousers. Lacy eyelet and silk minidresses gave the nod to the ubiquitous ’60s and ’70s mod style.Standout favorites include a burnt-orange and yellow plaid coat with a burgundy fur collar, polished navy cape-style coat, and a nylon color-blocked track pant paired with a thick, chocolate-brown velvet bomber jacket.Under Keller, the #chloeGIRLS movement took center stage, representing the women who embody the mind, body, and spirit of the brand. This girl-group included a variety of celebrity women, including the French actress Clémence Poésy, Olsen sibling Elizabeth Olsen, resident cool-girl Chloë Sevigny, as well as global social-media influencer Aimee Song. Song and Sévigny were seated front row during Thursday’s show, with Oscar-nominated actress Isabelle Huppert as well as Solange Knowles, Chiara Ferragni, Olivia Palermo, and Emma Roberts.When Keller became the creative director in 2011, she followed in the footsteps of some of fashion’s most revered designers. Karl Lagerfeld started out as a head designer under Chloé’s founder, Gaby Aghion, before taking on the head role as creative director from 1964-1983, and again from 1992-1997.In 1997, a young British designer (of famous lineage) named Stella McCartney was granted the coveted role and soon showed the industry she richly deserved the honor.When McCartney left to launch her eponymous line, a young designer named Phoebe Philo took the helm for six years. Philo is now highly regarded within the industry as creative director of the Paris brand Céline.In 2011, Keller finally arrived at Chloé after working stints at Pringle of Scotland and Gucci (when Tom Ford was still at the helm), putting her personal touch on the prêt-à-porter fashion style that the Chloé brand spearheaded in the 1950s.Although Keller’s plans for the future have not been made public, nor who her next successor will be, there are rumors she is in discussion with Givenchy to take over the role of Riccardo Tisci, who recently departed. We will sincerely miss Keller’s feminine, ethereal touch to the modern boho girl’s style.As Keller put it, “Chloé speaks to me on so many levels: first, because it’s feminine. I love the free-spirited, effortless attitude of the Chloé girl. For me, Chloé is about that fabulous piece you can wear so many different ways, and the spirit of confidence you brave when you wear it. Most of all, it feels real.”Click ahead to see all of our favorite looks from Clare Waight Keller’s last collection for Chloé.Read more:A Look Back at Balmain Before and After Olivier Rousteing’s ArrivalDolce & Gabbana Rips Off … Its Own ClothesAfter Dries Van Noten, Amber Valetta Speaks on Age DiversityFollow Yahoo Style on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration, delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

After six successful years — both commercially and critically — Clare Waight Keller announced her departure from Chloé on Monday.“After six extraordinary years at Chloé, I would like to thank Geoffroy and all my colleagues for their enormous efforts over the past years,” Waight Keller said in a statement. “Working for this maison has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. Chloé is a brand with values close to my heart and I have truly enjoyed working with some of the best talents in the industry. I feel privileged to have worked for a maison with such a heritage and I am very proud of all that has been achieved.”The epitome of French girl cool and the laissez-faire attitude that comes with it, the Chloé girl has always been our style crush.Waight Keller’s Chloé girl managed to capture back some of the acclaim of Phoebe Philo’s Chloé golden era — especially when the brand’s Faye and the Drew bags became the “it” bags of the past few seasons. Fans of the brand — including singer Adele, Blake Lively, Olivia Palermo, and Chrissy Teigen — have made the Chloé aesthetic their own, whether it’s for an ultrafeminine look or one with a touch of rock ‘n’ roll.Here, we look back at Waight Keller’s tenure at Chloé and toast her next move. After all, she will now join the impressive list of Chloé alumni — Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney and of course, Phoebe Philo —who have gone one to bigger and better things.Follow Yahoo Style on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, for nonstop inspiration, delivered fresh to your feed, every day.Follow Yahoo Style on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Unless you’re a seasoned vintage shopper, this season you’ll eschew a Victorian relic for one of the new, sexy modernized versions that went down the runway for Spring-Summer 2016. Fortunately there are plenty to choose from thanks to designers such as Altuzarra, Gucci, and Alexander McQueen. And while that covered up look could be considered austere, it’s actually all about how you wear the piece. “I think it’s best if you team it with denim or leather,” says stylist Emily Barnes who savvily dressed model Cameron Russell in a black lace Altuzarra top and Baldwin denim pencil skirt for the recent CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. “Dress it down. That’s the cool way to wear it. I have a great white Victorian blouse that I wear with beaten-up jeans, it’s one of my favorite looks of the moment.” Here are three very different ways to incorporate this romantic piece into your wardrobe (without looking too girly).

L.L. Bean is increasing its production and intends to make half a million duck boots this season, and if you’re not lucky enough to get your hands (and feet!) on a pair, you’ll have to wait until next year.

Here are over a dozen alternatives — some more fashion forward than others — so you can protect yourself from the elements all winter long.

“One of our most popular combos, for missionaries and non-missionaries alike! Our Stripe Houston Top and Red Atlanta Skirt,” She Traveled shared on Facebook of the above outfit. In fashion, there’s something for just about everyone. She Traveled was started by three women — Stacie Proctor, Deborah Kingdon, and Mabel Alarcon — to offer modest and chic options for those practicing their religion in the field (at 19, women have the opportunity to travel abroad in pursuit of converts) and at home.

This week, Instagram celebrated its 5th birthday. In that short time, it’s given us so much — not least of all countless hours of inspiration-slash-distraction (inspirtraction?) and a worrying tendency to see the world in squares. It’s also, of course, our favorite format for #humblebragging.But while most people stick to sunsets, selfies, and latté art, fashion people have taken the art of the Instagram brag to dizzying new heights — and no one who’s anyone would be caught dead ‘Gramming a macaron anymore. With fashion month wrapping up in Paris, let’s take a look at the new breed of #humblebrags. From “casual” airport pics featuring $10,000 worth of luggage, to snaps that low-key let everyone know you sat front row at Chanel, here are 9 ways fashion folks let you know they’re fresher than you.Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

For lux bohemians, Chloé is Mecca. The label — which since its inception has counted Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo amongst its designers— has been under the helm of Clare Waight Keller, a wispy British mother of two, since 2011. At her Spring 2016 show held Thursday morning during Paris Fashion Week, Keller proved once again that Chloé girls are all about casual femininity via looks ranging from track suits to rave pants to tent dresses.In her show notes, Keller called the collection a tribute to “girls named Kate, Chloe, Cecilia, Corinne, Rosemary, Emma, Courtney and many others who embody the liberty and elegance of a perfectly mastered and excessively lived simplicity.” We can only figure these are mostly members of the Mossy Possé — i.e. Kate Moss pals the late Corrine Day and Rosemary Ferguson (her BFF/nutritionist). Keller also described the attitudes of these women as “careless sexiness, streetwear romantic, naturally sexy, technicolor dreams.” (That’s a lot of tude!) First time attendee Dylan Penn said, “I loved how it felt casual, like bellbottoms with a flowy shirt in really amazing colors. I could see a lot of these pieces in Hair and Boogie Nights. Chloé is very feminine, yet keeps this modern, cool edge at the same time. I feel like that’s a hard thing to do—to pull off a suit and still make it look feminine and girly.” Fashion consultant Shiona Turini added, “A key to being a Chloe girl: have a shiny loose wave, be French or French looking, and it helps if you have an equestrian background and an endless love of flowy blouses.”Let’s break it down.Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Dree Hemingway is the newest face of the Chloé fragrance campaign, shot by Inez and Vinoodh. In May the French luxury brand announced that Dree Hemingway, great grand daughter of Ernest Hemingway, would be the new face of the fragrance campaign. Hemingway follows in the footsteps of Clémence Poésy, Chloë Sevigny, Anja Rubik, and Suvi Koponen. The new ads, shot by fashion photography duo Inez and Vinoodh, feature a stripped down Hemingway, who after lighting up the Chloé catwalk last year, became an obvious choice to front the campaign. We caught up with the model/actress during New York Fashion week to talk about her beauty secrets, what makes her feel confident, and what her sister has taught her about beauty. Alexandra Perron: You’ve walked the Chloe runway before, and now you are the face of the fragrance.

I’ve been spending too much time in the Mediterranean and clocking all the fabulous peasant blouses and printed hippie dresses in Ibiza. Fortunately, this fall the bohemian vibe is as strong as ever with Chloé’s most recent collection leading the pack. Nothing is more luxe hippie than this ruffled print peasant gown. With its deep V neckline with tassel ties, intricate floral embroidery, and flowy shape, this dress will never go out of style. Wear it with your gladiator sandals by day, and a fitted velvet blazer and sky high heels for evening. ...
