The storied house of Chloé has announced an upcoming collaboration with Atelier Jolie—Angelina Jolie’s fashion collective—on a capsule collection of ready-to-wear designs informed by social and environmental sustainability as well as modern femininity.
As a B corp certified brand—a rare find in high fashion—Chloé’s partnership with the humanitarian’s label seemed only natural. “From the moment I heard about Angelina’s vision for Atelier Jolie, I believed in it. It is a way to elevate others through the beauty of garment-making and her deep respect for the environment,” Chloé’s creative director Gabriela Hearst said in the press release. “It’s an honour for me that Chloé will be the first collaborator for Atelier Jolie, as both have high ideals for the betterment of our species. That is the reason why I love both Angelina and Chloé so deeply.”
Drawing on this common ground, the co-designed capsule collection will feature several looks constructed from deadstock and lower-impact materials by artisans from Fair Trade enterprises, while also spotlighting female-led social enterprises.
As for what the collection will look like? Chloé hints that it will be centred on “fluid silhouettes and tactile details”, with a focus on timeless eveningwear inspired by Jolie’s own wardrobe rotation.
“It has been a privilege to design with Gabriela Hearst, and I hope all women will feel comfortable and beautiful in this capsule collection. My earnings from this collaboration will be invested in establishing apprenticeships for tailors and artisans at Atelier Jolie,” said Jolie in an Instagram statement.
In the meantime, keep an eye on Chloé and Atelier Jolie for more updates on the eco-conscious lineup.
