Indigo Clarke reports on the Opening Ceremony A/W 13 womenswear show.

It was a raucous sixties mod-dolly meets ninties grunge fest at the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony A/W13 presentation, where screeching rock bands performed live alongside protest-movement inspired wares at East Village’s Saint Mark's Church. Kim Gordon was the first of several avant-garde musicians to perform as dead-pan models (including Sevigny herself) donned bold sixties silhouettes while clutching faux picket signs exclaiming defiant and awesomely-demented sentiments including ‘It’s time to have sex’, ‘Ham’ and ‘flirty Fishing’ among others.

The cool, collected mod-rocking collection was the very embodiment of longtime OC muse Sevigny herself, offering up graphic mod cuts, fabrics and prints including A-line skirts and swing coats, mohair sweaters, gingham and lace baby-doll dresses and PVC and corduroy separates and outerwear, all set against a killer soundtrack supplied by I.U.D. (Lizzi Bougatsos and Sadie Laska), Shannon Funchness (of Light Asylum) and Rafael Radna, Thinner (Lissy Trullie’s project) and Bleached.
