The Chloe Gosselin x Morgan Lane Collection.
A pool filled with garden roses, swaying palms, and the L.A. city skyline in the distance were the perfect backdrop to launch the SS19 collection between Chloe Gosselin & Morgan Curtis, of the lifestyle luxury brand, “Morgan Lane”. Just in time for summer, the designer duo is launching a capsule of swimwear and sandals, all featuring a signature emerald green “dancing floral” print.
Chloe and Morgan met while they were competing in the 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. A fast friendship was formed as the two became finalists, and their support was unwavering as they each started brands on their own.
The Capsule Collection features four styles of swimwear, and the signature “Willow” sandal. Each style was inspired by a modern-day Grace Kelly, and aims to make women feel confident about their bodies. “The seaming and belted waist create a nice, curvy mature contour while still showing off some skin. It’s luxurious, but also playful”, Curtis told Vogue earlier this month.
The event featured the collection, displayed poolside among hanging florals and blooming bouquets. At 6:00pm, guests were surprised with a stunning performance from Rachael Simon, a synchronized swimmer from the acclaimed Cirque Du Soleil show “O”. Dressed in the “Poppy One-Piece”, Simon moved magically through the water, performing a routine for guests. “It was the perfect representation of the beauty, confidence and femininity of the collection”, said Gosselin.
Among the guests who came to celebrate the collaboration were stylists Daniela Romero, Jessica Paster, Nicolas Bru, Nicole Chavez, Philippe Uter, as well as Influencers Cameron Bird, Emily Men, Natalie Joos, Maryna Linchuk, Erica Pelosini & Kristine Agabaian.
“This event was a display of the beauty that comes from two women working together, not against one another”, Gosselin added. The collection is now available in our E-shop, as well as on Morgan-Lane.com, Shopbop & Farfetch.
