Spring 2008 Fashion Trends: Paint-Splash Prints

The only Chloé in my life right now is my puppy's dear friend, Chloé the boxer, who happens to live down the street from us. Seeing them play is reeeally cute, but this blog is about fashion so let's talk about Chloé, the French luxury fashion design house, instead.

On our radar as the weather begins to warm is Chloé's Spring 2008 ready-to-wear collection: It's gorgeous. Everything is ethereal, youthful, modern and smart. And what really stands out are the inspiring painterly prints (meaning, it looks like some free-spirited artist grabbed a big paint brush, drenched it in deep indigo blues, light pinks, purples and such, and then splashed broad brush strokes of color onto sheer chiffon frocks, tops and skirts). It leaves you feeling sort of breathless, doesn't it?

We'll bring you budget-friendly interpretations of this artsy trend later this week, but for now, enjoy the pics and soak up some high-fashion inspiration.

Did you know... Chloé's creator, Gaby Aghion, is credited with inventing the Prêt-à-Porter (Ready-To-Wear) market we know and love today.
