Is it an end of an era for Gabriela Hearst at Chloé?
Sources say that Gabriela Hearst is to show her final collection for Chloé at Paris Fashion Week this fall. Under Hearst’s guidance over the last three years, Chloé became the first luxury brand to receive B-Corp certification; just one highlight in its impressive sustainability mission, and sales have grown towards the $1 billion mark thanks in particular to the success of omnipresent products like the Woody tote and knitted Nama sneaker. According to reports, the decision is mutual, as the designer wishes to focus on her successful namesake luxury brand, which received investment from LVMH Ventures a few years ago. Chloé has not yet confirmed the news, although yesterday the maison announced that it would team up with Angelina Jolie on her new purpose-driven, eco-conscious fashion venture Atelier Jolie. The partnership will see Hearst and Jolie co-create a capsule collection of eveningwear and ready-to-wear pieces inspired by the actress’ style, all made from lower-impact materials while showcasing the work of artisans from a Fair Trade enterprise. As the press release confirms that this collection will “incorporate [more] lower-impact materials than any previous [Chloé] collection,” it’s believed that this might be one of Hearst’s swan songs before departing the brand. No dates for the collection reveal have been announced yet. Watch this space!
