Chloe Sevigny, Kim Gordon and Lissy Trullie.
MTV may have changed since its early days, but we’re always looking out for the music. Here at MTV Style, we’re continually looking for the places where music and fashion come together, and, lucky for us, it happens fairly often. One of the brands we can always count on to make the connection is Opening Ceremony, and this New York Fashion Week, designer Chloe Sevigny is upping the brand’s usual music and fashion game even further than before by casting musicians in her Autumn Winter 2013 presentation. Taking place this Saturday, the clothes will be worn by the punk legends Kim Gordon and Ikue Mori, singer Lissy Trullie, Lizzi Bougatsos of I.U.D. and Gang Gang Dance, Bleached, and Light Asylum’s Shannon Funchness. It’s basically all of the coolest downtown ladies getting together and trying on clothes. But wait, that’s not all. This isn’t just a musicians-as-models scenario: the presentation will also feature performances from each of the artists, at least according to Women’s Wear Daily.
While we’re more than a little curious about how well we’re going to be able to see the clothes while the models are shredding (and trust, all these ladies shred), we’re REALLY excited that Chloe decided to throw a wrench in the traditional presentation format of people walking around observing models who are posed like beautiful roses in a garden. Don’t get us wrong, that works too, but this just sounds so much more fun! We can’t wait to see how the presentation turns out, and hope it inspires more designers to use musicians as their models in the future.
What do you think of the musicians as models trend?
