Looks like the executives at Chloé are tired of being hit-and-miss. WWD reports that the fashion house is replacing creative director Paulo Melim Andersson with Hannah MacGibbon:

MacGibbon was a key member of the design team under former creative director Phoebe Philo, and helped define the hip femininity that catapulted Chloé to fashion’s big leagues.

Melim Andersson, who joined Chloé from Marni in 2006, showed three collections for the house and received mixed reviews.

This places another woman designer at the top of a major fashion house, following Alessandra Fachinetti promotion's at Valentino.
