Chloe has always loved fashion – from experimenting with her mother’s wardrobe as a child to sitting on the front rows at some of the biggest and best catwalk shows around the world. Creating a collection is something Chloe has always aspired to do and May 2012 saw the launch of her brand; CJG and debut collection of shoes and accessories including jewellery, scarves & handbags.
For Spring Summer 2014 the Chloe Jade Green collection takes inspiration from the Americas.
Featuring styles that are perfect for dancing all night long or relaxing poolside – with super skinny sexy heels, pointed courts and summer must-have wedges, each design encompasses the vibrant and dynamic vibes of the Americas. Dusty desert washed materials, laser cut desert bloom leathers and animal prints define the theme of the range.
The hot tropics of South America and the dusty plains of Palm Springs are translated into styles through raw natural jute which is toughened up with a metallic chain edge, bold patterns and statement printed leathers. The carnival spirit is encapsulated through bold metallics, colour and sparkle alongside embellished appliqué and cut out detailing, which adds surface interest to the clean and simple profiles.
Inspired by lazy LA afternoons and California dreaming the relaxed, laid back style is merged into the range with flats that are given interest with embellished appliqués, delicate studwork and classic summer wedges as well as minimalistic strappy sandals. In keeping with Chloe’s signature style each shoe has a green sole and is named by Chloe herself. This season naming each shoe after places she has visited across the Americas – from Upper East to Rio de Janiero – the city styles are reflected in each design.
Silk scarves remain in the collection and have been revamped for the season ahead. They continue the theme of a Palm Spring desert with a beautiful watercolour effect and lens glare. The Latino influence continues with inspiration from the theme of The Day of the Dead skulls, mixed with pretty lacework for a feminine edge.
