TFW diary: True downtown grit at Chloé Comme Parris

Chloé comme Parris Fall 2011

When I try to digest yesterday’s Chloé Comme Parris show, all that comes to mind is wow wow wow. In their sophomore LG show for fall, sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon mixed understated western elements with a distinctively refined downtown edge. But these aren’t just run-of-the-mill western elements, they are right out of the (Gold Rush) history books… or off the (True Grit) silver screen. Silver belt buckles in multiples adorned tailored jacket shoulders, the waists of bombers and the edges of several poncho-like sweaters. Coattails and the backs of shirtwaists alike appeared as curvilinear outpourings from otherwise structured garments. This is becoming something of a signature for the sisters, who seem to pay special attention to the caboose of things. And the accessories! Crystal shoulder straps and buckled bags added even more it-factor to the show’s offerings.
