Who: The lithe Parisian supermodel who shook up the ’60s style scene.
Her look: Androgynous, sultry and irreverent, with a penchant for a monochrome pantsuit.
The runway tribute: Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent debut was inspired by Catroux, who sat front row, but her impact was also seen at Valentino and Gucci.
How to work it now: Pair unbuttoned silk shirts with billowing pants and bold jewelry.
the statement piece:
Chloé’s much-loved Susanna boots get an update for spring in three new hues. Choose from vermilion (above), soft blush or caramel snakeskin to add a tough-luxe edge to every outfit, from downtown denim to ladylike lace.
