Selfridges to stage exhibition to celebrate 60 years of fashion pioneer Chloé

Selfridges is to stage an exhibition to mark the 60th anniversary of French fashion house Chloé next month, with Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney pieces among the contributions.

From 1-30 March, the Oxford Street department store will transform its ground floor Concept Store to feature a series of vintage pieces from the Chloé archives and videos of the label's most memorable fashion shows.

The exhibition, curated by Judith Clark, will also see the store's famous window displays dedicated to Chloé.

When it was launched in Paris in 1952, Chloé became the first high-end fashion house to offer ready to wear - or pret a porter - clothes, a move that revolutionalised the industry.

Sebastian Manes, director of womenswear and accessories for Selfridges, said: "Being able to bring this wonderfully celebratory retrospective to London is a joy for us.

"Reflecting on Chloé's incredible accomplishments and contribution to the world of style is a must for followers of fashion, and we're delighted to showcase that within our store."

To commemorate the Edition Anniversaire collection, Chloé has also reissued 16 famous pieces from its history, including Karl Lagerfeld's violin dress of spring/summer 1983 and Stella McCartney's pineapple T-shirt of spring/summer 2001, which will be available to buy.

A similar retrospective, entitled Chloé.Attitudes, was held in Paris last year.
