CHloe by Sonny Vandevelde

Dear Shaded Viewers, would like to know how you would rate the runways. Why not vote and give your opinion. Frankly I know that people seemed disappointed with CHloe but I’d rate it over Chanel, how about you?

    ….what I like about this vision is the motivation in the styling and colour…looking…searching towards a new perception on the use of colour and opposites to refresh the outlook of what is already there……very motivated and jolly…

    chloe was pure crap.
    Chanel makes me dream. The stories it tells are much more deep than this italian crap design at chloe.

    Dear Charles,
    Chanel as a concept is a dream but this present collection is not one of Karl’s finer moments in my humble opinion, I guess you disagree?
    Kisses, Diane

    Karl has as a matter of fact all the advantages in the world to surpass himself……I find it rather disappointing that yet indeed this is not Karl’s finest moment of inspiration to create a dazzling collection for the great fashion house of Coco Chanel……..who in a way must be rather disapointed too…high above in the heavens…..and I’m sure Karl is such a sport that he will appreciate the honesty….he is and still a master in his skills no matter what……:):)……

    well i guess fashion lies in the eye of the beholder,just like beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.
    I do think that Chloe F/W 2007 collection
    is great and i rate it over Chanel as well.
