Runway: Chloë Sevigny for O.C. Resort 2012

June 9, 2011

For the first time, Chloë Sevigny showed her Resort 2012 collection for Opening Ceremony in a runway show (this is her fourth collection for Opening Ceremony and her second Resort collection).   The inspiration was a little skater chick (platform sneakers and high tops), a little dreamy (white lace dresses and pearl-embellished flats) and a lot biker chic (leather, leather, and leather paired with denim).  You can see a lot of Sevigny herself in the collection: street style, youth-infused fun which included varsity jackets, sweats in collaboration with Vision Street Wear, and breezy mini-dresses.  The collection definitely infused some new ideas into this Resort 2012 season, which has been an endless cycle of sporty neon scuba wear.  Her second Resort collection may not be for everyone, but knowing the designer and her daily inspirations, it makes sense.

Am I going to rush out the door to buy a pair of platform sneakers?  Hmm…probably not.  I have a difficult enough time walking in regular sneakers, sooo why add the extra challenge?  A cropped leather tank with lace cut-out detailing? Now that, I can do.  Nothing is as disturbing sexy as letting the 40+ men that frequent summer festivals have a sneak peek of both your chestal AND tummy regions.  We say meow.
