Remembering Gaby Aghion

chloe-logo

Gaby Aghion was a visionary that changed fashion forever. She created the whimsically free-spirited house Chloe, is credited with coining the term and practice of luxury pret-a-porter and had a knack for hiring young, undiscovered talent.

Gaby Hanoka was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1921. She met Raymond Aghion at the age of seven; the two eventually married at 19 and moved to Paris in 1945. Rejecting the stiff, utilitarian fashion on the times, Gaby opened Chloe in 1952 using fine fabrics in soft, feminine silhouettes. At the time, off-the-rack was limited to harsher fabrics and more ridged cuts, while couture was outrageously expensive; Aghion sought fill this space in what she called luxury pret-a-porter. She sold her first collection- six cotton poplin dresses- to boutiques all over Paris and the pret-a-porter came to life!

“I’ve always thought that women look better naked”

Chloe launched their first show at the very Left Bank, artist hangout Cafe de Flore. The brand was youthful, boho and easy. Gaby envisioned it as an incubator for emerging designers. In 1959, she stepped down as head designer, passing the reins to Frenchman, Gerard Pipart. After freelancing for Gaby since Chloe’s inception, Karl Lagerfeld joined the creative team in 1964 and became creative director in 1966 until 1983, the year he joined Chanel. Karl’s name was synonymous with Chloe during this time. During the 70s, Chloe became symbolic of the times- it defined an entire generation. Karl left Chloe for a mere 8 years before returning once more to design for the label, eventually passing the torch to the young, Stella McCartney in 1997.

The Stella years saw a revived brand with a neo-Chloe look. Stella was perfectly of-the-moment in the late 90s; playing with fruit and other illustrative motifs, but also with impeccable tailoring and a dressed-down sensibility. Chloe remained youthful, while becoming paired down during her time there. On the team which she assembled, Phoebe Philo became her right hand woman. Philo naturally took over  in 2001 when McCartney left to launch her own line.

“All I’ve ever wanted was for Chloé to have a happy spirit, to make people happy”

Having sold the House in 1985, Gaby Aghion remained it’s biggest supporter. The CEO for the brand said she wished her death last week not outshine their Spring collection this week- what a gem.

“I don’t explain anything, I have lived… I lived the life I wanted. I soundly believed in all of this and I held on”
