• After six years at the helm of Chloé, creative director Clare Waight Keller sent her final collection for the house down the runway this morning. 

• During her tenure, Chloé became an mainstay in cool girls' closets, thanks to the effortless bohemian aesthetic she developed. 

• Her designs embodied the free, liberated outlook of Gaby Aghion, who founded the ready-to-wear house in 1952.  

• Fall 2017 was a fitting punctuation to Waight Keller's reign. 

• Free-flowing, short, floral-print frocks were a focus here, as were cozy oversized sweater dresses, wool coats in neutral plaids, and chubby, snugly furs, one of which was closed with a leather bow. 

• Speaking of bows, pussy bows abounded, as did the exaggerated "butterfly collar" that Waight Keller designed for the season. 

• Two standouts were relaxed jumpsuits in suiting fabric, and a '60s style salmon dress that looked to be patent—oh so French. 

• Also sweet? That red velvet number with the cutout heart bodice. 

• This collection embraced the youthful, carefree, independent spirit of Chloé. Waight Keller's fans will no doubt miss her at the helm, but it will be exciting to see what her successor (rumored to be Natacha Ramsay-Levi) brings to the table. However, as Waight Keller exits, she can rest assured that she did Aghion proud.
