After doing some damage - I mean shopping, in SoHo on Friday, I was most blown away by Opening Ceremony's new stock. I wanted almost everything I touched - flat espadrille inspired flats, the Rodarte peplum dress straight from the runways to this huge Hello Kitty statue on the top floor of their adjacent store. Now I here one of their collaborators - Chloë Sevigny is at it again staging a full on fashion show. Her first collection with OC was the epitome of laid back cool and her second one will be . . . well we'll just have to wait and see.
Chloë Sevigny creates her collections for Opening Ceremony sporadically—as you might expect of someone who has a few other major commitments. (Big Love springs to mind.) Her first was shown with a concert in New York; the second in London back in 2009; her most recent, for Resort ‘11, was shown last at a tea party presentation in Manhattan. Her next one? Next month—when she’ll stage a full-scale runway show.
“Right now I am focused on putting together my first runway show,” Sevigny told Style.com this week. “I’ve never done this part before and it’s a little scary, to be honest. I’m still in the early stages, but I have been looking at spaces, looking at models, and selecting the music and all of that. It’s pretty cool to be doing this.”
The Resort show will be the catwalk debut of Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony collection, and be the first time the retailer has ever shown on the runway for any of its lines. - by Kristin Studeman
