Department store of the moment – thanks to the Sunday night drama of Jeremy Piven on Channel 4 – Selfridges is set to play host to an exciting exhibition next month in dedication to fashion label Chloé.
Due to run throughout March, the Concept Store located on the ground floor will be transformed into an installation celebrating 60 years of Chloé, showcasing a series of vintage pieces from the fashion house’s archives in addition to videos of its most memorable fashion shows. Judith Clark has lent her curatorial expertise to the project which will be reflected in the London store’s window displays for all of Oxford Street to witness.
Karl Lagerfeld’s violin dress (SS 1983) and Stella McCartney’s pineapple tee (SS 2001) have been exclusively reissued together with 14 additional key pieces from the label’s extensive history, to form the commemorative Edition Anniversaire collection available to buy in store. Sebastian Manes, Director of Womenswear and Accessories remarked of the exhibition: “Being able to bring this wonderfully celebratory retrospective to London is a joy for us. Reflecting on Chloé’s incredible accomplishments and contribution to the world of style is a must for followers of fashion, and we’re delighted to showcase that within our store.”
