Archivist’s fourth issue marks the historic unveiling of a new archive at Maison Chloé. This collaboration with Archivist is the first time the house has given access to more than five decades of its history.
The archive is full of multiples. Multiple references, multiples designed (a trompe l’oeil jacket on a hanger, embroidered on the back of a jacket), and so important in the history of the fashion house – the multiple designers who have so significantly contributed to its reputation: Gaby Aghion, Gérard Pipart, Maxime de la Falaise, Christiane Bailly, Tan Giudicelli, Michèle Rosier, Graziella Fontana, Guy Paulin, Philippe Guibourgé, Peter O’Brien, Luciano Soprani, Carlos Rodriguez, Martine Sitbon, Yvan Mispelaere, Paulo Melim Andersson, Hannah MacGibbon and, of course, those designers whose work dominates the archive – Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo, and Clare Waight Keller, and looking ahead to Natacha Ramsay-Levi.
