Welcome Back Nineties


CHLOE SEVIGNY’S capsule collection for Opening Ceremony hit the internet this week to an overwhelming hiss. As an avid watcher of 90210, Chloe’s collection brought me back to the days of Brenda, Kelly, and Contempo Casuals. She looks fabulous of course, but it is because she is Chloe, and I never doubt her decisions. I even saw the Brown Bunny three times at the Nuart – I loved it, really. If you too would follow her blindly back into the nineties check out the rest of the collection here. Opening Ceremony is a great space, run by friends of Martine Syms, a fabulous artist I know.

A black sweetheart dress is perfect for the girl who doesn’t take herself too seriously. Mix it with some Folk Impulsion or Robert Palmer and the night it pretty much set. Chloe’s retails for $315 at Barneys, but if you don’t see the nineties coming back anytime soon try F21, whose retails for $49. You can’t say this is a knock off because we all know Contempo & Judy’s had them displayed in ’91.
