After a somewhat lukewarm success on her Opening Ceremony line, celebrity designer Chloe Sevigny is still not stopping. There’s a buzz that Ms. Sevigny will branch out to menswear. That is right. While her women’s line is demeaned to be rather ‘cute but weird’ by some fashion commentators, we are seriously curious about what she’ll dress the men with.
Sevigny’s statement on the buzz:
“Not only did I want to do something for the guys in my life, but a lot of my girlfriends prefer to wear men’s stuff…I think what they like about men’s clothes is the fit. So I don’t want to change that. It’ll be a new challenge.”
We imagine it would be a huge challenge as it’s probably gonna be hard dressing up men in leggings and retro-fabulous dresses like she did on her Opening Ceremony lookbook for women. But as she stated above, the Opening Ceremony line for men will also have a women’s version which differs only in sizes and minor cuts. Wow. Now we are intrigued big time.
There’s no confirmation yet on when the line will drop, but we will update when we hear!

About Chloë Sevigny
Chloë Stevens Sevigny (born November 18, 1974) is an American actress, fashion designer, and former model. She gained a reputation for her eclectic fashion sense, and developed a broad career in the fashion industry in the mid-to-late 1990s for modeling and her intern work at New York’s Sassy Magazine, which labeled her the new “It Girl” at the time and garnered her attention within the New York fashion scene. In 1994, her personal style attracted the attention of journalist Jay McInerney, who wrote a 7-page article about her for The New Yorker, in which he called a then 19-year-old Sevigny the “coolest girl in the world”. Throughout her early film career, her bold fashion choices sometimes overshadowed her acting career until her performance as Lana Tisdel in 1999’s Boys Don’t Cry brought her widespread notice and acclaim. In 2000, she won the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award for Best Female Celebrity Style. The following year, Vogue Magazine called her a “fashion icon”, helping to further accredit her image as one of the most stylish women in the industry.
