chloe sevigny x opening ceremony

It seems to be the case that every time Chloe Sevigny does anything, fashion blogs go into a tizz (I guess that makes me a joiner). The sartorially savvy actress/model/designer/it-girl always seems to be high up on the barometer of what’s ‘cool’ so it makes sense that her collaborations with Opening Ceremony are highly coveted. Her latest offering comes in the form of a Resort/Pre-Spring collection. The collection, which taps into the current nineties revival trend, features 16 looks inspired by Sevigny’s favourite prints and pieces from her own wardrobe (isn’t that always the case with celebrity collaborations though?)

At the core of the collection are five dresses in five prints. The combination of polka dot, paisley, houndstooth, floral, and leopard prints are sure to keep everyone happy. There are also plenty of quirky accessories, cropped knits, and killer footwear. If further proof of a nineties influence is needed, look no further than the shoes: Sevigny enlisted cult nineties footwear label NaNa to create the shoes for this collection. The shoes range from 5inch wooden clogs to platform combat boots and, if the lookbook is anything to go by, they should nearly always be worn with a pair of socks.

The collection also features a t-shirt collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, where t-shirts will sport Mapplethorpe’s signature black and white photographs (is it just me or is this whole thing starting to look like an exercise in ‘cool’?) Sometimes I wonder if it hurts to be Chloe Sevigny… surely it can’t be easy… you know… to be that impossibly cool?
* I don’t know whether that last sentence should be taken in jest, or if I’m actually serious. This concerns me.

    haha its funny to think chloe sevigny might wake up in the mornings and go "damn, i'm so cool it hurts!"
    it's kinda like beyonce a while back, she said "i'm tired of being 'sexy'!" (which coincidentally is how CSS got their bandname)

    i do love chloe sevigny's OC collabs though, the leopard cardigan from the last one has been on my "covet" list for ages. the frill sleeves on the leopard dress are pretty cute and that first peter pan collar dress is sweet too!

    @emmaj: done and done.

    @jess: the leopard dress is also a fave of mine, that and the bow clogs!

    @Amie: you never know!haha. Upon re-reading, I think I may sound a little cynical in regards to this collab, but I truly do like it. That first outfit is a definite fave, and the leopard print dress and socks are sweet too.

    @rouli: thanks for following!

    chloe's style is definitely badass and i think she rocks. BUT, she apparently hates Canada, according to some videos on YouTube, and I am unwilling to forgive her for that hahaha.
