We wanted to show groups of friends who would go out together and dress in the same way and so it felt like a really nice way to present the collection. It is also not a particular generation and it is nice that it feels like a blend of all generations. We used a lot of the art work that is original from all the flyers and invitations throughout the years and we used it all as printed motifs and it is nice because it really shows your emotions on your body and I think that is a great way to represent yourself. The collection is mixed with easy things and couture techniques and jacquards so it the mixture for us feels like modern day clothing that people would wear every day.Chloë Sevigny:I loved the music I loved the groups. I thought it was so fun. I haven’t smiled that much during a fashion show in such a long time, it was so jovial and it was so fun, I loved it. Music of the show, do not reuse for more than 7 days after the show
