Fashion & Style: Chloé's looks for Fall/Winter 2009/10 continued the menswear inspired trend of the early 1980s with a neutral color palette.

Warm and cozy, yet fiercely elegant with details, the collection is primarily focused on menswear inspired pants, and the sexy fullness they bring when worn by a woman.

Primary colors of the collection were military inspired shades of beige, mingled with black and white as well as cream. Feminine details were brought in through a mingling of metallics in shades of bronze. The warm color palette combined with luxurious cozy fabrics in the wool blanket coats, high-waisted fluid pants, wrapped belts and cashmere and velvet evening looks made everything functional yet fashionable.

Although baggy pants were a mainstay, they took on an almost exaggerated femininity as their oversize were rolled and belted at a high-waist, giving them a very tapered ankle and wider hip.

For evening, along with the flowing semi-sheer dresses, Chloé indulged in pants options, including some very special velvet jumpers. Evening looks were jazzed up with embellished sandals, a ladylike contrast to the boots seen with the day looks.

Slouchy pirate boots that went well over the knee made a frequent appearance, most successfully when paired with cuffed leather shorts and an oversized striped blanket coat. The collection also showed a lot of extra large bags, as well as more delicate clutches, the difference in size accenting the day to night transition of the collection.

It is only Hannah MacGibbon's second season as the creative director and already she has shown growth and understanding of the Chloé label and its history of "It" items.
