Last month, Chloe Sevigny debuted her collection with Opening Ceremony in New York.
Instead of models, Sevigny’s artsy friends wore the line, which centres around five different styles of dresses in five prints.
“I love high fashion, but I can’t even look at a magazine without having an anxiety attack because we all have issues with our bodies,” explains Sevigny. “So for me it’s really important to show the clothes on regular girls, or on myself, ’cause I’m a 35-year-old woman. I’m not 110 pounds.”
Why did you pick these prints and silhouettes?
I was thinking about how girls buy the same thing over and over again. I do, all of my friends do, so I thought if you find one silhouette you like, you keep buying that dress.
Your collaboration with O.C. is so successful — ever think about doing just a Chloe Sevigny line?
No, that seems really complicated. I’ve got it pretty easy right now; we get along really well. If I did a J. Lo or Sarah Jessica Parker — not that I’m knocking them, I’m sure they make a gazillion dollars, and good for them — but I don’t think that I have enough brand recognition that I could go that big.
What are you coveting right now?
I’m trying to find a new pair of jeans, which I know is the ultimate quest for every woman. My ideal jean would be the Levi’s that Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis wore in Thelma & Louise. (Those) Levi’s makes every ass look really great. I want the Thelma & Louise ass!
