Recently tapped for a Calvin Klein campaign, actress and style icon Chloë Sevigny weighed in on the ad along with her latest views on downtown style. The campaign features Sevigny alongside “Euphoria” actor Dominic Fike as shot by director and photographer Alasdair McLellan.
Now a new mother, Sevigny admitted having a child has hemmed in some of her fashion choices. In an exchange with Vanity Fair, she explained, “I always say you can’t have anything nice when you’re a mother. Like, I bought this thick North Face Margiela puffer jacket thing on Grails or one of those many sites; I was like, This is gonna be so cozy. I’m gonna be so comfortable and warm, and I couldn’t move. I need to be able to help him up the stairs.”
While ease has become a bigger priority for Sevigny, she has her limits. “I hate to say it, but the pervasive Lululemon girls have got to go. I mean, they can just all get on a bus, as far as I’m concerned, and leave right now.”
Weighing in on the ever controversial Dimes Square scene, she added, I’m just like, Where are the freaky kids? I see them in Washington Square, I don’t know if I see them so much over at Dimes. I feel like I’ve seen more of a version of high fashion. There are certain individuals, I don’t know if I wanna call them out, that I feel are really pushing it, but I’m also not hanging out there.”
When asked to sum up what New York style is at the moment at least for teens, she concluded, “A lot of tiny tops and baggy pants. It’s just because I’m in the park where the playgrounds are, seeing the teenagers.”
