Chloé unveils the Nama – a new sneaker design that reflects the luxury Maison’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment.

Rooted in the Maison’s commitment to sustainability, the eco-designed Nama sneaker is crafted from a rich mix of lower-impact materials with 40% of its weight made up of recycled debris.

Through a screening life cycle assessment done in partnership with sustainability consulting group Quantis, which traces everything from the product’s raw material extraction to production, Chloé has calculated that the Nama emits 35% less greenhouse gases and consumes 80% less water than its predecessor the Sonnie sneaker.

The bold, lightweight structure features a hand-stitched mesh upper, showcasing authentic Chloé craftsmanship. Set on a contrasting, ridged sole, this women’s sneaker is ultra-comfortable with a cool, sporty aesthetic. The Chloé logo at the back adds a signature touch.

Chloé Spring-Summer 2022 Runway Show: The latest collection from Gabriela Hearst is “all about Love”.

Situated along the banks of the Seine with a view to Notre Dame, this season’s runway provided a picturesque view of Paris, a beautiful backdrop for Gabriela Hearst’s latest collection. With even greater intention, the luxury Maison is working to limit its environmental impact.

“For Spring-Summer 2022, we are increasing our use of lower impact materials (up to 58% of the collection vs 40% in Winter 2021, versus 55% on Spring 2022). Gabriela’s vision spans dresses adorned with metal talismans sourced from deadstock jewellery findings and components to hand-cut vegetable dyed leather patchworked into a dynamic composition taken directly from one of Gabriela’s drawings.” said Chloé in a statement.

The gemstones found throughout the collection are meant to convey healing properties and are all naturally sourced.

Around 70% of the handbags leather offer is sourced from Leather Working Group-certified tanneries. On foot, the soles of the new Chloé Lou line are made in collaboration with Ocean Sole, a social enterprise that upcycles flip-flops, which have been collected and found washed-up along the beaches and waterways in Kenya. This season, Chloé is also expanding the number of its high-end products handcrafted by independent artisans by introducing Chloé Craft, which appears as a spiral symbol embossed on garments. Other non-for-profit collaborators and social engagements for SS22 involve Akanjo, a World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) guaranteed member producing some of the knotted shell necklaces and based in Madagascar; Agir Pour La Santé Des Femmes (ADSF), an organisation that provides vulnerable women across France with healthcare access and support by supporting their cause; and Les Bâtisseuses, a network that trains women refugees in ecological construction to help them integrate into society.

The lower impact wool gabardine of the trench coat in pearl beige is contrasted by intricate scallop trim details. The dusky blue denim of the ankle-length flared dress is made from 100% organic cotton, which is then laser-treated.

By becoming B Corp certified, we reinforce our ongoing commitment to taking accountability for our impact on people and the planet. Rather than a final goal, this certification marks a new stage in our transformation towards a purpose-driven model, reinventing how we do business.B Corp will help us frame our transformation, and we hope to inspire other organizations in our industry to join the movement.” – said Chloé in a statement.

This certification is the result of over 18 months of collective work by Chloé teams worldwide, staying true to its mission: Women Forward. For a Fairer Future.
