Putting on a musical spectacle alongside her catwalk show, Isabel Marant, the it-girl of Parisian fashion, was in a joyful mood on Thursday night.
During her Chloe show at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday, designer Gabriela Hearst demonstrated her environmental consciousness by holding the play within a renowned Paris greenhouse. Nonetheless, on the dry sands of Parc Andre Citroen, it featured celebrities such as Demi Moore and Maria Sharapova rather than flowers, which seemed to be in blossom.

The Chloe designer, born in Uruguay, has placed the environment at the forefront of her work throughout her time at the brand. The concert on Thursday night was no exception. It is situated in the sand-swept interiors of a Parisian greenhouse and is painted in hues that represent the climate issue. The use of bright tangerine orange, vermilion, and reds against black suggested a forest that had been ravaged by fire, while the use of soft whites, creams, and beiges represented glaciers that were melting and drought.

The pared-down shapes, which relied on softly contrasted materials, took influence from the outdoors, as well as from film and television. Puff sleeves, simple lines, scallop designs, and body-hugging knits were inspired by the muse of Franco Zeffirelli’s 1973 film “Brother Sun, Sister Moon,” which chronicled the life of the Patron Saint of Ecologists and was directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Some pieces stood out, such as a black leather cut-away dress with ethnic discs adorning the body, but the overall look seemed a little flat at times. Was it, maybe, due to the time and effort used — commendably — in promoting its minimal environmental impact? Chloe announced with pride that it had met its yearly aim of 56 percent reduced impact materials in the ready-to-wear presentation due to Hearst’s eco-conscious slogan once again.
