One of the interesting things that happens when a designer decides to break free of a fashion house is that an immediate sense of nostalgia starts to set in, particularly amongst the fashion folk.  This rings true for Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo’s departure from Chloè, where they each had wildly successful stints, not only designing for beautiful bohemian spirits but also in creating an essence that accompanied the Chloè girl.  As time goes on, it will be interesting to see how Hannah MacGibbon makes her mark on one of the most influential brands of the past decade.  So far, so good.  Below, some Chloè ads I scanned from way back when Stella and Phoebe still held the reigns.
