Ever wonder who creates some of your favorite windows and mannequins at R. Derwin Ladies boutique? Meet Chloe Calabrese, one of our resident stylists, who began dressing mannequins (or, as we call them, Chloe-quins) when she was only 15. We decided to follow Chloe on a recent prop-shopping trip, in preparation for her latest window. Our first stop was Lon Albano Antiques in Goshen, CT. Chloe made us promise not to divulge the exact location, but keep an eye out for the sign in the photo above when heading south on Rt. 63, toward the Litchfield Town Green.
Chloe is pictured above draped in a Johnstons of Elgin cashmere circle cardigan sweater, over a Velvet Cotton Tee. She is also wearing Current Elliot’s Beatnick Jeans with a Pat Aries sterling western belt buckle on a calf-hair strap. Chloe’s handbag is handmade in Florence, Italy by Il Bisonte.
Chloe had a blast playing with this vintage tin pinwheel…inspiration for a new window?
