Honestly, can you just imagine having full access to any designers archives, never mind a French powerhouse like Chloe? Well Natalie got to do just that and she got to not only go completely behind the scenes but she was allowed to pull from those archives and style gorgeous models using Chloe clothing from across the decades! The results are drop dead beautiful and we especially love how this shoot demonstrates that great design transcends decades and trends. The clothes used in this photos span 60 years and yet everything feels fresh and modern. A testament not only to Natalie's styling skills but to the endearing greatness of designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Pheobe Philo and Stella McCartney - all of whom are now powerhouses of their own. Definitely use the link below to pop over to Natalie's blog "Tales of Endearment" to get her insiders scoop, but in the meantime these are some of our favourite shots from the shoot adn Natalies time in the archives. Lucky Luck girl!
PS we actually have sold some pieces to Chloe as they have strove to recreate and beef up their archives. We can't help but wonder if Natalie spotted them while she pulled pieces - small world no?
