Chloe Gosselin: “This season I wanted to provide an intimate look into the Chloe Gosselin woman – her strength, her confidence – all of which is sourced from within. The Chloe Gosselin woman wears her shoes to seduce no one but herself, even in her boudoir.”

Jonathan Simkhai: “Fall ’16 is about finding equilibrium between angular edge and soft texture. Textiles play a key role in creating softness with linear layers of tensity-charged laces”
