About the Designer:
Chloe Gosselin has been inspired by art and design her entire life. Born in France, she attended the renowned Fine Arts Program at the School of Lacambre in Belgium. She then began a successful career as an international model achieving recognition in the industry for nearly a decade. She later studied shoemaking and production at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York as well as at Ars Sutoria Milan. After her travels around the world she decided to make New York her home and launch her eponymous label. The influence of these different cultures, and the fine line between art and fashion, give Chloe Gosselin’s designs their strong identity.
Chloe Gosselin launched her shoe collection in February of 2014. The designs do not follow any trends, but are guided by her own vision, influenced by music, contemporary art, photography and vintage aesthetics. Each style is designed with a set in mind, a dream moment where a particular shoe can be worn and adored.
About the Collection:
Chloe Gosselin launched her namesake label of luxury footwear in February of 2014.
The collection ranges from everyday wearable flats and booties, to exquisitely designed evening sandals and pumps. Chloe Gosselin designs are not guided by trends, but by Chloe Gosselin’s own vision. The lines are simple and sharp, the curves are feminine and sensual. The shoe becomes exceptional through the choice of materials. Exotic skins flirt with rich suedes, and supple leathers, creating covetable treasures that complement the woman. The collection is handmade in Italy, with respect to the incomparable and undeniable tradition of Italian craftsmanship.
Each style is named after a poisonous flower. This choice is influenced by a series of elements: the recurrent use of exotic leathers, a fascination of venomous animals and their unique beauty and colors, and the latent danger when they slowly move. Chloe Gosselin’s designs span from the feminine, ornate and light, to a solid and powerful mood. From a dreamy girl delighted by the past, to a modern, strong woman anchored in her reality.
Chloe Gosselin designs have been featured in top fashion and luxury magazines including Departures, Interview, Nylon, WWD and W. The collection has also been worn by A-list celebrities such as Madonna, Taylor Swift, and Kate Winslet, among others.
