Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” collection

By Laura on May 17th, 2011

I love the fresh, day- faded pastels of Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” Collection. However, that said I can’t help but feel these shorts will only work on super skinny model types. Unlike some, I have no issues with men wearing shorts… but it is all about the length, and well short shorts just aren’t a good look.

Check out the limited edition collection below, and available online here

Opening Ceremony shoes: Do Androids Dream of Electric (Blue) Feet?

By SLaw on June 16th, 2009

New York & Los Angeles-based boutique Opening Ceremony is already a favourite with fashion insiders, with a wide-ranging selection of fine labels, cuts and accessories; much like to London’s b Store, but with added vintage finds. Like that Savile Row emporium, their own-brand shoes have become staples with footwear connoisseurs.

And it’s easy to see why. Understatedly simple design, well put together and beautifully finished; they are shoes that are designed to last beyond one season. Originally seen in the post-war US airforce, the classic blue suede shoe has been updated in an electric indigo (Some call it International Klein Blue, some call it Celia Blue), which should by rights pigeonhole them as one-hit wonders, but is striking rather than fashion-victim. They also exist in a clean, desert boot style, and in a darker suede, with a Lanvinesque patent leather toe. Suede isn’t exactly the most practical of materials (just ask Elvis), but when it’s executed this well, frankly, who cares?

Available from online fashion oasis, Farfetch (via the V-Store in Copenhagen), and French retailer Tres Bien Shop.

Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony at Dover Street Market

Chloe Sevigny
‘s unisex collection for Opening Ceremony debuted this Sunday, to coincide with London Fashion Week.
“There’s much less pressure doing men’s, and because this collection is unisex and oversized, I felt like I could have more fun,” Sevigny said. “Except for the trousers — getting the fit right was really difficult.”
The actress named fashion designer Miguel Adrover as one of her influences, along with gay lumberjacks, preppy New England and English punk. Sevigny is known for her offbeat fashion sense, adding: “I love pouring my creative energy into fashion during my downtime.”

She obviously plans on keeping her fingers in fashion pies as she seems to have her sights set on bigger things: “Maybe I’d do a very small collection for one of the big luxury brands,” she said. “But right now, Opening Ceremony is right — we have a shared aesthetic.”

Just when Karl says no…Opening Ceremony launch website!

By Will Reid on February 16th, 2009

site.jpgFashion extraordinaire and all-round legend Karl Lagerfeld recently told the press that “an H&M dress and a Chanel dress can look the same in a small photo, but not in real life” and explained that he isn’t ready to take the Chanel label online. However, Opening Ceremony (the great albeit not couture label) have just opened their website and online shop.

The online store will offer a mixture of the label’s own collection as well as other brilliant labels. After all, this is a label favoured by many a hipster and frequently sees collaborations with the likes of Chloë Sevigny.

Prepare to max out the credit card.

uniqlo opening ceremony humberto leon carol lim.jpgUniqlo are announcing their collaborations for spring and Opening Ceremony have been confirmed for a menswear collection. Also taking part in the Designers Invitation Project this season are Gilded Age who’s classic take on Americana will sit well with the Uniqlo aesthetic.

One half of Opening Ceremony, Humberto Leon said: “when you order this much, the cost significantly decreases. We had to ask ourselves, ‘How many zippers can we really have in a garment?’ The craftsmanship is there. They executed all our details on an amazing level.” Their collaboration with Chloe Sevigny was really well received so it’s with great anticipation that we await for their line, which debuts in March.

Present Tense: Gifts for a luxe Christmas

Aspirational present ideas for your friends and loved ones, there is nothing more luxe than carrying a nifty china version of a disposable coffee cup and it’s eco-friendly to boot. A bow tie spruces up a simple shirt no end and the Topman Fairisle scarf is a lot cheaper than it looks. Dressing gowns make rubbish presents unless they are amazing quality like this black one which will make the wearer feel like they’re in a hotel even if they’re just watching Fern and Phillip in their pants.

The Eugenia Kim hat combines the trendiness and warmth of a trapper hat with the timelessness of dogtooth and I don’t need to tell you why Opening Ceremony‘s patent desert boots are amazing.

chloeopeningceremonymensrange.jpgAfter all the hype surrounding her début collection for Opening Ceremony, it looks like Chloë Sevigny may be about to do it all over again, with a new menswear range on the cards.

Word on the street is that the Big Love actress is planning on collaborating with the US label again on a range for guys, that will also be available in girl versions.

“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,” Sevigny told Style File.

Grey on Grey Hoody by Opening Ceremony

By admin on February 11th, 2008

New at Oak is this rather sumptuous hoody from Opening Ceremony. It appears to be patchwork, so that’s a feat of construction which ought to be commended.
Opening Ceremony are pretty hot shit, despite their collaboration with Chloë Sevigny (which as you’d imagine is horrible – I know that’s sacrilege, but come on, you know girlfriend can’t dress). A New York based shop and label, they do a great line in slightly gothic luxury items.
This futuristic looking sweatshirt with its grey on grey pattern is about as sophisticated as a hoody can get.
