“The references are all over the map,” said an unapologetic Chlo?« Sevigny, chatting about her latest collaboration with Opening Ceremony – a unisex collection she unveiled during London Fashion Week. The line, which she showed Sunday at the Double Club, was a “slight homage” to one of her favorite designers, Miguel Adrover, said the actress, but it also had dashes of what she called “gay lumberjack,” James Dean, preppy New England and English punk. Highlights included skinny moleskin trousers, Fair Isle, tiger and leopard-patterned knits, little tweed blazers, dyed thermals and oversize jackets that fall past the hip. It was conceived as a men’s collection that women could also wear.
Sevigny and Opening Ceremony have also collaborated with Bass on a selection of footwear, including two-tone Weejun loafers and saddle-shoe boots. Other accessories include checkerboard scarves, fabric backpacks with plastic patch pockets and beanies. Prices start at $95 for a fringed scarf and run to $945 for an overcoat. The line will be carried at Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles and stores including Barneys, Colette and Dover Street Market.
