Actress Chloë Sevigny has long been known for her love of vintage so it makes sense that vintage fashion reseller Vestiaire Collection would link with her on a vintage-themed editorial. As we mentioned recently, vintage right now is all about the ’90s, in particular the major luxury labels of the era.
In the exchange, Sevingny theorizes on why there is a current lust for ’90s-era vintage. “It was the last time there was a real movement in fashion and film and people are harkening back to that and a sense of authenticity that has been disappearing. People were bolder then and not as afraid to be un-PC or make statements or do things that were more risky,” she said, adding that it’s also somewhat cyclical. “Looking back, as a teenager I was obsessed with the 70s. It was everything to me. The fashion of Saint Laurent, the style of Debbie Harry and the Ramones, that was all I wanted. I can imagine that kids born in the early 90s now maybe have that association because of a time they were close to but not really a part of.”
