In the 80's, a series of talented designers including Martine Sitbon keeps the collections fresh and ever changing, whilst reiterating Chloé. After the Richemont Group buys the house in 1985, its notoriety grows around the globe.
In 1997, Stella McCartney reinvents Chloé.
In 2001, Phoebe Philo continues the Chloé legacy.
