Natacha Ramsay-Levi has just been announced as Chloé’s new creative director for ready-to-wear, leather goods, and accessories starting this April.
Before landing this incredible job, Ramsay-Levi was Ghesquière’s right hand woman at Balenciaga for 11 years and then worked at Louis Vuitton as creative director for women’s ready-to-wear starting in 2013.
“I am very proud to join a house founded by a woman to dress women,” Ramsay-Levi said about working at Chloé. “I want to create fashion that enhances the personality of the woman who wears it, fashion that creates a character and an attitude, without ever imposing a ‘look.’ ”
Keeping the long tradition of female designers at Chloé, Ramsay-Levi succeeds the brand’s creative director Clare Waight Keller, who officially announced her departure in January to “take time off with her family”.
The move is somewhat unexpected given that Ramsay-Levi’s work with Ghesquière has more of a hard-edged vibe which contrasts quite a bit with Chloé’s emphasis on flow feminine silhouettes but we are excited to see how this mix of futuristic cool and boho chic will play out in Chloé’s Spring 2018 collection!
