|Chloe Sevigny signed copies of her latest book at IDEA Books over this past weekend.|
Chloe Sevigny made a stop into IDEA Books at Dover Street Market this past weekend. We didn't have a chance to write about it beforehand because we only found out at the last minute. Luckily we follow @ideabooksltd on Instagram (they have one of the best Instagalleries) and caught the news that morning. What better than a spontaneous Chloe moment?
Chloe is a true style icon, not to mention a recognizably talented actress. Rick and I relished the chance to meet her as she signed copies of her new picture book. It includes photos taken by Terry Richardson, Juergen Teller, as well as other photographers and friends. From Foyles.com,
A celebration of the eclectic and daring personal style of the actress and contemporary fashion icon Chloe Sevigny-famous for looking cool without looking like she's trying. Chloe Sevigny has been a muse in the downtown creative scene for over three decades, beginning in the early '90s when she modelled for Sassy, appeared in a Sonic Youth music video, and then starred in the controversial independent movie Kids (1995). Her quirky and avant-garde fashion sense was quickly noticed by indie magazines and the world's top photographers. Since then, she has starred in dozens of films and television series, in addition to starting a fashion label with the trendy global boutique Opening Ceremony. This volume is a deeply personal illustrated chronicle of the evolution of Sevigny's unique style throughout her career: from a teenage skater girl to award-winning film actress and fashion designer. The book includes early personal photos of Chloe taken by her high school friends; film stills; modelling appearances for brands such as Miu Miu and Chloe; magazine editorials for Purple, i-D, and The Face by top photographers such as Mark Borthwick, Terry Richardson, and Juergen Teller; and homages by artists such as Elizabeth Peyton and Karen Kilimnik. Additionally, Sevigny shares some of her treasured personal memorabilia, such as casting fliers, Polaroids, zines, and pages from her day planners. This volume will appeal to the legions of global Chloe fans and fashion industry followers, as well as a mainstream audience who will find this book an inspirational style bible.
Afterwards, both Chloe and IDEA Books took to Instagram for a few posts.

|Coming soon to London: Louis Vuitton's Series 3 Exhibit|
Don't get us started on the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the V&A. How many times have we been? For good measure, we're getting another dose of the McQueen exhibit tonight at midnight. High fashion and drinks always make for the best Friday nights. Too bad Savage Beauty ends soon.
Luckily for us, London has a number of fashion exhibits on the horizon. Yohji Yamamoto has an exhibit at Live Archives. The Saatchi Gallery will be showing Chanel in October. Also, just announced is Louis Vuitton. The Vuitton exhibit will be located near Somerset House, once home to London Fashion Week.
Set in a former office block neighbouring Somerset House, this ‘Instagram-friendly’ installation will span three floors and 13 rooms, giving a glimpse into the work behind Vuitton’s AW15 collection. Video footage from the show will be projected onto life-sized screens, emulating the view from the front row. The exhibition will conclude with a gallery of the house’s AW15 campaign which was shot by Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber. There’ll even be free posters and stickers for attendees.
"Instagram-friendly." Wonderful. We love that.
