Chloe's collaboration with Opening Ceremony
I adore Chloe Sevigny. As crazy as this sounds, there is literally nothing I dislike about her and her style. What I love so much about her is her dedication to both fashion and film (yeah, I'm a film student - can you tell?!) It's as if each filmmaker hand picks her for their role and when she's not designing wardrobe herself (Gummo) she seems to attract these characters with quirky, mannish, motifs. Most of my favourite women have an androgyny about them - an androgyny that's grounded in femininity. [see Alison Mosshart].
Her wardrobe: shift dresses, boxy over sized jackets, leather leather leather!
Where to find her: Hanging out in Greenwich village or the East Village, Manhattan.
Who she's with: New York hipster elite Lesley Arfin and Leigh Lezark. Or a beautiful bearded man on her arm.
Soft colours and fabric, but with her distinctive straight lines shape.
Boxy jacket and bare legs - Chloe loves denim and black boots!
Chloe designing for Opening Ceremony - A lot of her collections influenced by fetishism, S&M, latex, leather.
Most recent collection for Opening Ceremony - the leather suspender's inspipred ra-ra skirt.
Opening Ceremony. Leather bloomers!
Chloe's been rocking the granny-chic for a while now! (bonus points for spotting the Baldwin in the picture!)
