Chloé does Cocktails: Artist Damien Hirt and Pixie Geldof With Chloe's Creative Director, Claire Waight Keller (Getty)
To celebrate the launch of Chloé’s aptly named retrospective book, Chloé Attitudes, the brand’s creative director, Claire Waight Keller hosted a cocktail party on Thursday Night at the new Sackler Gallery. The book is the first time the archives of the French brand have been fully investigated so if that isn’t a good enough reason to throw a party we don’t know what is!
As Chloé is one of the chicest of all Parisian labels, it was only fitting that Claire Waight Keller and the author of the book, Sarah Mower, were joined by a host of style savvy guests. As Claire Waight Keller is a phenomenal British talent, the party was somewhat of a home coming for the designer.
Arriving in the fashionable area of Kensington was the ever vibrant artist, Damien Hirst who was seen posing with the book in a very apt way for photographs. And of course the party wouldn’t be complete without a bevy of ladies cladded in Chloé.

Chloé was one of the stand out collections in Paris for the Autumn Winter 2013 shows with its subtle and clever layered looks and minimal pieces which let the cut of the garments do all of the talking. So it was a perfect opportunity for the female guests to don some of the pieces. Pixie Geldof was seen in a high waisted knee length skirt teamed with a textured black coat and accessorised perfectly with a gold chain necklace with large statement pearl.
Posing alongside the likes of Eliza Doolittle and Jenna Coleman was the ultimate ambassador of the brand, the designer herself, wearing one of the skirts with fabric braces looks which are setting fashion pulses racing this season. The ‘Chloé girl’ has a very distinct and effortless sense of elegance and the party on Thursday night was a full display of that exact ‘Chloé Attitude’.
