Oh, Chloë

18.12.2016 | Art , Fashion | BY:

The imitable Chloë Sevigny fronts the new J.W.Anderson‘s SS17 campaign, and it couldn’t be a better fit. Sevigny’s nonchalant cool was captured by photographer Jamie Hawkesworth, appearing alongside images in which Anderson’s clothes are juxtaposed with the natural world.

Known for his hybridism, the look book speaks from core influences of J.W.Anderson’s design– ideas of change and transience in this technological age. Hawkesworth‘s images capture these ideas of movement, contrasting a pensive Sevigny in domestic environments to the free-flowing clothes outdoors and aligning colours to create a sense of energy and depth.

If Chloë Sevigny wasn’t your style crush before, she probably should be now.

Chloë Sevigny, Out Now

22.04.2015 | Culture , Fashion | BY:

Chloë Sevigny has been at the forefront of cool since the nineties; modelling for Sassy, appearing in a Sonic Youth music video and starring in the independent and controversial film Kids (1995). It was her eclectic and avant-garde fashion sense that caught the attention of many, and now it has been chronicled in a new book.

Published by Rizzoli and with a forward by Kim Gordon, the personal photography tome journeys through her style evolution. In addition to childhood images, film stills and imagery from magazine editorials, the volume also features pictures of Sevigny’s most prized memorabilia.

Chloë Sevigny is out now and available to buy here

Chloë’s Swinging Sixties

15.08.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

We’ve been itching to get our hands on the new Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony FW13 collection since we first saw their presentation in February, and now the time has come. Launching today, the collaboration pieces are available both online and in store, and it’s definitely been worth the wait.

The campaign as shot by KT Auleta, is all about the fun loving, sixties cool girl, vibing Cindy Sherman dress up and transports us back in time to the hedonism of Warhol’s Factory. Expect Twiggy-esque monochrome, ultra cute two-pieces in baby blue and bubblegum pink, with plenty of mini skirts and midriffs thrown in for good measure.

Keeping It Cool Sevigny Style

31.07.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

If anyone can make the Seventies look modern again, it would have to be Chloë Sevigny.

Clad in psychedlic print silk shirts, boyfriend cut blazers, mirror-appliqué minidresses and chunky loafers, the queen of indie cinema and quirky fashion stars as the face of Miu Miu’s A/W 12 campaign and short film, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. It may be Miuccia Prada’s fine tuning in cut, fabric and colour or just simply the fact that the 37-year-old actress can pull off anything and everything she wears, but despite its references there is not an ounce of retro stiffness to this collection.

Backed by the nonchalant tunes of American pop duo Phanotgram, the accompanyng video exudes the same wonderfully laissez-faire attitude of coolness. Having previously fronted the brand’s S/S 96 campaign, it becomes clear that even 16 years on, Sevigny’s still got it.

London’s Opening Ceremony

20.07.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Overly cool brand Opening Ceremony has garnered a cult status through its locations in cities like New York and Tokyo. Luckily for us, London is finally getting a piece of the action, thanks to the launch of label’s first UK shop yesterday. Set in Covent Garden, the 3,000-square-foot pop up store has been opened to coincide with the Olympic Games starting later this month and the company’s ten-year anniversary in September.

The brand has already collaborated with the likes of Chloë Sevigny and Rodarte, but to mark the London O.C. takeover, designers including adidas, Norma Kamali, Topshop, Band of Outsiders, Charles Anastase, Christopher Shannon, House of Holland, Pamela Love and Proenza Schouler have created exclusive capsule collections for the store.

Combined with a selection of rare books curated by the Claire de Rouen team and set in a neon-coloured, geometric shape-decorated landscape courtesy of Studio Toogood, it’s safe to say we have found ourselves a new retail paradise. Let the shopping games begin.

Fashion Parade

25.04.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Right now there’s one opening ceremony that we’re excited about. Yep, innovative retailers and purveyors of global cool Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony are opening a pop-up shop in London’s Covent Garden, days before the Olympics are due to begin.

While it’s a more than apt moment to launch the brand into the UK, we’re simply happy to have the store on this side of the pond. Having already produced collections lusted after by fashionistas the world over, the store is set to boast wares by Proenza Schouler, Chloe Sevigny and Pamela Love, as well of course as Kenzo, whom Opening Ceremony recently took over design duties for. For those keeping it strictly sporty during that month, they’ll also be Adidas X Opening Ceremony.

Hot on the heels of the pop-up store will come a permanent space opening in Autumn, but right now, the buzz building up for July just got louder.

Open House

31.08.2011 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Opening Ceremony have a history of cool collaborations. From indie-queen Chloe Sevigny to denim giant Levi’s, the store cum label manages to shape-shift between creative influences while retaining its essential DNA. Their latest collaboration is with conceptual de-constructionists Maison Martin Margiela. Since presenting the collaboration at New York Fashion Week back in February, it’s been a matter of playing a patient waiting game. Finally though, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela x OC is on sale and it’s a partnership based on shared sentiments.

Recuperation, transformation and reinterpretation are the immovable creative cornerstones for the Maison and the collection is a fluid enactment of their 3-in-1 concept. Linings of coats unzip to become lightweight layers and nylon gaters add height to ankle boots to the point of becoming trousers themselves. They’ve even come up with a quirky stop-motion video that brings the morphology of the Maison and OC’s designs to life. Get swept away.

Twin Issue IV

01.02.2011 | Blog , Twin Book | BY:

Embrace the age of rebellion. Twin’s Spring/Summer issue is charged with the power and expectation of youth. In ‘The Year of Discontent’, photographer Clare Shilland shoots the young women who are fighting for their educational rights, in ‘She bangs the drums’ modern rebel Alice Dellal is celebrated by her closest collaborators and photographed by Paul Wetherall. Elsewhere, two prolific design duos – Rodarte and Meadham Kirchoff – share their inspirations, from rugged terrains to Riot Grrl, and we enter the homes of two downtown New York renegades – artist Aurel Schmidt in, ‘There’s something about Aurel’ and actress Chloe Sevigny in, ‘Kick ass’. Last but by no means least, for, ‘The Letter Set’ Costa-winning poet Jo Shapcott showcases the women who are igniting the form in a specially curated Twin poetry portfolio. It’s our very own rebel yell.
