Chloé Fall Winter 2023 Collection

Creative director Gabriela Hearst may have had antiquities on the brain when it came to artistic inspiration (the designer was inspired by Renaissance architecture, the works of Italian baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi (known as one of the most progressive painters of her generation in the early 17th century) and the Old Testament Book of Esther.

But it was a long list in the show’s notes, of updates on environmental and social impact, that show Hearst’s vision is firmly rooted in the future.

There were a multitude of fair trade programs highlighted for ready-to-wear, handbags and accessories, plus updates on the brand’s environmental impact goals, which include ensuring that 90% of the shoe SKUs are lower-impact (95% of the shoe leather offer is sourced from LWG-certified tanneries). The collection introduced the new Raina rain boot, for which Chloé partnered with ACBC, a producut development firm specializing in sustainabilty to create the footwear that is made from Bio-based TPU, which reduces greenhouse gas emission, water usage and overall weight of the product.
