Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony s/s 2015

Chloë Sevigny presented some days ago in New York her sixth collection for Opening Ceremony, which included some of the next season’s key looks. Sevigny’s s/s 2015 collection was an original blend of sportswear and schoolgirl uniforms that impressed everyone with its youthful freshness, featuring pinstripe overalls, 80’s inspired blazers, mini kilts with suspenders, baseball hats and tees reading “Tri-State Represent”, as well as a selection of playful ruffle platforms. “Every season I’m torn between the nice Connecticut girl, the alterna-girl, and the hip-hop girl, so it’s a mishmash of that,” said Sevigny during the presentation luncheon, revealing that she was also inspired by cult film “Heathers” and the work of Yohji Yamamoto.

For the collection’s presentation at the High Line Hotel in New York, Chloë Sevigny collaborated with fellow artists Lizzi Bougatsos and Agathe Snow that created for the occasion some special installations, including a giant ice sculpture in the form of a pair of scissors. Sevigny said that with her collection she wanted to go back to school and “celebrate girlhood in all its optimism, discovery, awakening, awkwardness and absurdity”. That’s why she also gathered a talented gang of 22 girls, aging from11 to 24 years old, that added with their poems, their music and their live performances a touch of charming youthfulness to the event, stealing the heart of the attendants, among them Kim Gordon, Suzy Menkes and Sally Singer. Can it get any cooler than that?
