>> Earlier this morning, Chloe announced that it will not be renewing its contract with Hannah MacGibbon, and instead, has hired former Pringle of Scotland head, Clare Waight Keller, to take the reins as the creative director effective June 1. Before we bid adieu to MacGibbon, take a look at some of her most notable work during her three years as head designer at Chloe, including those popular canvas wrap sandals from her Spring 2010 collection, in the slideshow.
>> Thigh-high slits are a major Summer trend thanks to designers like Rag & Bone and Michael Kors, and we like how Andy, from Style Scrapbook, shows off her interpretation of the leg-bearing style. The Mexican cutie paired a grey slit maxi skirt with a plain tee and red cropped blazer for a cool colorblook effect. Accessories, via a Rebecca Minkoff bag and Alexander Wang Dakota booties, complete her scintillating warm weather look. Get the same outfit with our similar and exact picks now!

>> While previous reports said that Hannah MacGibbon was due to stay at least another season with Chloe, WWD announced today that Clare Waight Keller, will take the helm as the brand's new creative director effective June 1. Most recently, Waight Keller spent six years as the creative director of Pringle of Scotland, but reportedly left the brand so she can take time out to concentrate on her family. In a statement, MacGibbon, who has been with Chloe for 10 years, lauded Waight Keller for her, "deep experience and innovative approach to knitwear." MacGibbon has not announced specifics on her next venture, but said she will be "pursing new projects."
