Chloé is a French fashion house created in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, a Parisian fashion designer born in Egypt together with Jacques Lenoir.
In the 1950s the creative couple became detached from the formal rules of fashion, creating sinuous, passionate and original luxury items.

In 2001, Phoebe Philo took over from Stella McCartney to the creative direction of the fashion house, continuing the path of brand renewal.
Fluid dresses, gipsy inspiration for a modern woman who loves perfect details and finishes. An important aspect is the accessories, with bags like the "Paddington", which soon became the best-seller of the brand, with long waiting lists in all the stores in the world.
