Everyone is pulling out all the celebratory stops before the New Year arrives.
Catch up on all the fashion happenings below, and find endless gift ideas along the way too.
Chloé x Barbour Drop A Capsule Collection
Chloé and Barbour, two fashion brands, have teamed up to create a capsule collection that will entice you to buy. The line features three ready-to-wear styles: the Dany coat and Dustyn jacket with Chloé’s signature ruffle details and the Hadrien cape. Accompanying accessories include Edith Bag, Mallo Boots, Noua Combat Boot, Silk Square Scarf and Hat.
This partnership marks the first time the British heritage brand has worked with a luxury women’s house on a collection. And according to a press release, it has special meaning here for Gabriela Hearst, Chloé’s creative director, as her father and stepfather used to wear Barbour jackets to work on their family’s ranch in Uruguay. You can shop the new drop at matchesfashion.com.
