OPENING CEREMONY PRESS
ChloŽ Sevigny for Opening Ceremony: Reds
Actress-designer ChloŽ Sevigny marks the debut of her new line of unisex menswear with this limited-edition hardcover volume. First called on to model her collection of tweedy wools, Fair Isle knits, and animal print jacquard sweaters, ChloŽ's redheads became muses for a project focusing on the curious place of red hair in our culture. Curated by Sevigny, Reds features contributions from Slater Bradley, Peter Coffin, Matt Damhave, Brian DeGraw, Joe DeNardo, Brendan Fowler, Jess Holzworth, Matt Keegan, Karen Kilimnik, Nate Lowman, Marlene McCarty, Jack Pierson, Rob Pruitt, Aurel Schmidt and Kon Trubkovich. Original works by these artists accompany images by David Armstrong, shot on location at the photographer's townhouse in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. In addition, redhead lore from Lily Ludlow explores centuries of redhead mythology, which variously described the fair-skinned, freckled breed as temperamental, magical, unlucky, jolly, beautiful and deviant.
