That Was Then, This Is Now AND This Is Now #6

That was then... surrealism on display from the Chloe archive on display at the Palais de Tokyo in 2012:

and this is now... Chloe from the Spring 2013 ad campaign...  isn't it interesting that houses are embracing their archives and rereleasing and reinventing pieces from their past?  I have not seen the reimagined arrow pantsuit but I suspect that although very wonderful, it will not have the handwork that went into the original...

and this is now and then at RARE vintage...  Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe dress with its mirrored arrows - Mon Dieu!  has been quite the project!  Sometimes when I buy vintage it is a story full of drama, mystery and an unspoken fragility.  It can come to RARE vintage in a weakened state, needing a care giver, an historian and a little love.  

This is an Ode to Love...

Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe mirrored arrow dress.  Silk.  Size 6/small 8.
