Sienna Miller wasn’t the only star power showing off her design skills at London Fashion Week Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny also debuted her second collection for Opening Ceremony. The new line, Chloe tells WWD, is a “slight homage” to one of her favorite designers, Miguel Adrover, with dashes of “gay lumberjack,” James Dean, preppy New England and English punk. This unisex line marks Chloe’s first foray into menswear. “There’s much less pressure doing men’s, and because this collection is unisex and oversized, I felt like I could have more fun,” she tells WWD. Long cardigans, leopard-print, thermals, Fair Isle and skinny trousers were just some of the designs that made up the collection. Chloe’s Opening Ceremony line is priced from $95 for a fringed scarf to $945 for an overcoat and is sold at Opening Ceremony stores in New York and Los Angeles as well as at Barney’s, Colette and Dover Street Market. While Chloe has no intention of leaving acting for fashion she does want to spread her creative wings. “Maybe I’d do a very small collection for one of the big luxury brands,” she tells the fashion publication. Marc Jacobs are you listening?

I have long thought that Chloe Sevigny was one of the ugliest people in Hollywood. Her clothes fit right in.

I wonder.... on

How many gay lumberjacks does she know that will wear leggings, gladiator-style sandals, flowered shirts and grandma-style leopard print cardigans? Seems like Chloe is being very insulting to said lumberjacks. Not nice Chloe.

Just to tell you the boots are not unisex, neither are the tights. The rest is in fact unisex. I think that its an amzing collection. She is is an inspiration and should be a role model to all girls.
