Sandra Suy para Chloé

by Estel Vilaseca,

The news could be that, to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary, la Maison Chloé is releasing a collection of sixteen emblematic creations that contributed to making the brand success. The capsule collection includes seven accessories and two limited editions of just 60 copies and expresses all the richness and vitality of Chloé’s allure. The house started the celebration last September with a big exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Among the standing out pieces are the Embrun dress from 1960, a tremendously successful piece, because it says “I am carefree”; the Ananas top from spring summer 2001 designed by Stella McCartney, or some of the greatest hits by Phoebe Philo.

But the news are that the fashion illustrator comissioned to bring back the Chloé allure has been the Spanish artist Sandra Suy. Her delicate style now wraps the walls of the macro Chloé pop up set up in the famous Parisian Printemps store.
I cannot resist sending her  a few questions via Facebook to know more about that. She seems surprised: “I don’t get too many proposals “, and after she answers kindly the following questions:

¿How did you get that comission?

I’ve got a fantastic agent in Paris that get the job.

I can imagine it represents an important moment for your career to see your illustrations in king size in Printemps…

It is really exciting, I’m looking forward to go to París and see it in persona. I feel really honoured for that opportunity.

¿When did you enjoy the most with this comission?

I’ve enjoyed all the process, I’m not able to highlight one special moment.

¿What do you love about it?

I love how Chloé tries to find the natural beauty in every woman, I like the comfortable luxury that it represents. As its founder Gaby Aghion said “I’ve always thought that women look better naked”

¿Any other interesting projects in the works?

I’ve got some interesting proposals but I can’t say more.
