Cloe Cassandro’s new collection, comprised mostly of silk chiffon, features elegant silhouettes – feminine ruffles, classic necklines – that fall with airy grace.
In seafoam greens, oranges, easy whites, greys, and ocean blues, it’s clear her resort wear line is made for the beach. Cloe understands what women want to wear on holiday. The contrast between form-fitting and flowing has been mastered by Cloe herself, who wears custom engraved bangles, her own designs, and always has a bikini in purse. Her textiles, hand printed and dyed by artisans in Bali, evoke a feeling of warmth, her ethical approach to a luxury design indicative of her history as a traveler.
The collaboration pieces with ByRory are the perfect addition. While the lightweight feel offers comfort, the mixture of thin spaghetti straps and low backs will expose sun-kissed shoulder blades, easily accessorised with your favourite jewellery, basket, heels or flats.
