In just two short years, Chloe Oliver has established itself as a go-to brand for those ladies who embrace an unstructured Bohemian look (often embellished with beading, fringe or even pompoms) that calls to mind a young Stevie Nicks. It’s not what one might expect from two women from Michigan, but Jessica Lewis Edler (left) and Taylor Lungren (right) have both spent enough time in Los Angeles to be stylistically inspired by the Southern California lifestyle and all it encompasses, from days spent at the beach to weekends at outdoor festivals (wine, food, film … you name it). Their fall collection, in stores now, follows the duo’s basic style philosophy, with added inspiration gleaned from a recent trip to India. “Color was everywhere — the saris the women wore, the open produce markets, the strands of flowers,” recalls Edler, adding that, as a result, the prints they selected for their fall collection boast a wide range of color. One such print includes the “Agra,” which is incorporated on both the Aurora silk-fringed kimono coat as well as the Kallie, a shift dress with gypsy feather ties. Chloe Oliver also reinterprets the Indians’ love of intricate beading with a romper featuring a fully beaded short, as well as the red-carpet-ready Hope maxi dress with a dramatic bead-yoked neckline.
