Opening Ceremony’s “Where The Wild Things Are” Keds—A Rip-Off?

Class, please observe:

Up top: Opening Ceremony’s limited-edition “Where The Wild Things Are” Keds, featuring zebra stripes or leopard prints on pony hair. They run for $125 a pair. [Style.com]

Down below: Some pre-existing Keds that are awfully similar (no fancy pony hair or anything) and will only set you back $60. [Zebra print, Zazzle; Leopard print, Zazzle]

So, students, is this a total rip-off? Please discuss. And yes, this will be on the final (receipt, that is). Keep reading »

Chloe Sevigny Obsesses Over Redheads For Fall Campaign

Are redheads finally experiencing the glory they deserve? Clearly, we’re highly obsessed with “Mad Men”‘s Joan Holloway (disappointingly absent, we might add, from last night’s episode!). Now Chloe Sevigny is shining a spotlight on them too, by using only redhead models in the lookbook for her Opening Ceremony collection. Called “Reds,” the catalog reads more like an art book with photographs as well as more conceptual illustrations and collages.

Apparently, reports View on Fashion, Chloe chose to go this route because she “thought that her collection of grey tweeds would look perfect on redheads.” Interesting fall fashion idea for the non-reds out there … pairing tweed with fiery accents? Maybe a blazer with a cherry-colored silk blouse underneath?

The Fashion Peacekeepers: The Olsen Twins

Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?

Oh you Fashion Police! You’re so … predictable. Of course they hate the way Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look at this Opening Ceremony party in Japan and added them to their lineup, but we beg to differ. First off, let’s think of the context here: like it or not, Opening Ceremony is a hipper-than-thou avant-garde kind of boutique that’s all about experimental fashion. (If you don’t believe me watch this highly entertaining video starring Chloe Sevigny.) Second, this is Tokyo, where lots of young folk pop similar “fun” headgear on their heads the minute they step out of the office in the evening. Believe me, they just earned, like, 10 million cool points from their Japanese fan base. Thirdly, they just look downright cute. In summation, we’re pretty sure their inspiration was our recent post on how wearing animal ears is the hottest new thing. We called that shiz over a month ago. [E!] Keep reading »

Please Help Me Step Away From This Questionable Item

You know how sometimes you come across a pair of shoes or a dress or whatnot and you simply have to have it? And there’s no rhyme or reason to it and said object of desire probably only looks good on whomever it’s being modeled on and definitely won’t do you any favors in real life? I am currently having that moment. I know that this new Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony unisex scarf pullover is going to make me look like a scary little old lady (one who is an extra in a medieval period film and playing a peasant). I also realize that the fabric — a blend of polyester and wool — will likely be itchy and possess asthmatic-like breathing problems. And the price tag, a whopping $495, is clearly insane. I mean, really cray-cray. Then again, part of me believes that it will be yummy and snuggly all fall (maybe it’s a Snuggie I’m really after?), and come winter, it’ll look smashing layered beneath a nice black overcoat. Judging by the fact that they only have one color left in stock, I’m not alone. Still, can anyone set me straight here? I’m afraid I’m going to make a very expensive mistake.

Chloe Sevigny Freaks Us Out In New Japanese Video


Hip NYC boutique-turned-empire of sorts Opening Ceremony opens in Japan next week, complete with an indie star-studded — Jena Malone, Jason Schwartzman, etc. — video series meant to promote the whole enchilada. We’re sure the Japanese are rather excited about the coming of Opening Ceremony’s particular brand of fashion-y hipster cool clothes. But WTF is with this odd Chloe Sevigny video (above)? Is this a cultural divide thing? Or is it really just all-around too strange to comprehend? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
