Chloë Sevigny’s static Opening Ceremony show harked back to her 90s IT-girl status with a touch of teen angst, riot grrrl rebellion and girl meets boy styling. The pink babydoll dresses and pastel berets looked like something Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom would wear, while the signs held by kohl-eyed models were something the Pussy Riot girls might have brandished. The A-line mini-skirts, mod collars and cute booties referenced Sixties youthquakers while five all girl-led bands and songstresses, including X-Girl founder Kim Gordon, whipped out a Battle of the Bands style performance, each playing in succession. The men’s collection featured full rude boy sweats, made with a little help from skate-brand Vision Street Wear while Emilio Cavallini collaborated on knee-high socks and seamless bodysuits. A fifth, fun and successful collection inspired by teens for teens with Chloe proudly representing alongside her kooky models in a patent leather skirt and turtleneck.
