Chloé makes a name for herself in eco-responsible fashion with her spring-summer 2022 collection

While Gabriela Hearst presented her very first collection for Chloé last March, the Uruguayan designer once again imposes her eco-responsible and artisanal vision of fashion in this second collection. 

It was on the Quai de la Tournelle, in the 5th arrondissement of the capital, that Gabriela Hearst unveiled her spring-summer 2022 collection for Chloé. While the Uruguayan-born designer had already imposed her eco-responsible and artisanal vision of fashion in her very first collection for the home, she renews this commitment by offering an eco-friendly wardrobe and by committing to causes that are dear to her. In this new collection, the artistic director presents “Chloé Craft”, a creative center that highlights independent craftsmen to make each piece by hand, for more transparency, traceability and quality. 


In fact, more than half of the pieces in this spring-summer 2022 collection have been designed from materials with a low environmental impact, such as recycled or unused materials. As for the accessories, the leather in each bag and fifty percent of the shoes comes from Leather Working Group certified tanneries (an environmental protocol certifying the transparency of the origin of the leathers) and all the leather goods were created in partnership with Mifuko, an organization guaranteeing fair trade in basketry that works with Kenyan artisans. 


Even the soles of the new “Chloé Lou” shoe range were made in collaboration with Ocean Sole, an association that recycles flip-flops found along Kenya’s beaches. As for the jewelry, it is adorned with semi-precious stones (agate, amethyst, carnelian or lapis lazuli)  and natural shells. Finally, even the set of the show was made in an ethical spirit, in collaboration with Les Bâtisseuses, a network that trains refugee women in ecological construction to help them integrate into society. Moreover, the cushions on which the guests sat were also designed in an eco-responsible process:  from scraps of fabric from the house.
