Founded in 2014, the Chloe Gosselin luxury shoe brand perfectly blends French cool with Italian craftsmanship. Born in France, Gosselin attended the renowned Fine Arts Program at the School of Lacambre in Belgium. Following a decade of travelling the world as an international model, Gosselin returned to school to study shoemaking and production at Ars Sutoria in Milan and at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, where her brand was born.
Gosselin’s passion for contemporary art and design, music and priceless vintage artifacts, results in a collection that is not trend led. She soon identified a niche in the luxury shoe market for timeless and understated designs that suit the modern woman and all aspects of their daily lives. Within this niche, the brand has rapidly gained momentum and is now stocked internationally in the world’s most illustrious department stores and online destinations such as Barneys, Level Shoe District and Myer, Australia.
A loyal following of New York ‘girls-about-town’ and magazine editors grew and celebrities quickly followed suit. Chloe Gosselin has become the go-to shoe brand worn to events including the Grammys and Golden Globes by Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift and Kate Winslet amongst others.
Chloe design’s for women like herself; she creates the kind of shoes that she wants to wear because she is the Chloe Gosselin customer. Each shoe is designed in her New York studio and handmade in a remote town a few miles from central Florence. Emphasis is on classic design, the finest fabrics and exceptional craftsmanship with a distinctive youthfulness and fun aesthetic. Distinctive features such as the classic single-sole sandal, corset ties and curved panelling have led to the evolution of her signature shapes and a highly recognisable brand image.
Fabrics range from exotic skins, velvets and suedes. A signature design that has gained iconic status is the best-seller ‘Larkspur’, a single soled sandal that is a modern take on the universal open toed seasonal offering.
Previously listed as a ‘brand to watch’, Chloe Gosselin’s ability to constantly deliver sought after collections and classic designs, has reinforced her position at the forefront of the global luxury footwear market.
Chloe Gosselin is a 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist.
