Chloë’s London Debut
Chloë Sevigny has turned up in London from shooting a movie in Wales adapted from the autobiography of the drug smuggler Howard Marks. “It’s called Mr. Nice, and I’m playing his wife Judy,” she told a group of guests she’d invited to dinner at The Double Club, the London phenomenon underwritten by Miuccia Prada and designed by Carsten Höller, whose situationist installations have caught the imagination of Londoners since he designed a series of shute-tubes in the Tate Modern for the population and their kids to play on. Sevigny was there to check out the half-Congolese, half-Western setup and give friends, including Pat McGrath and Edward Enninful, James Kaliardos, Roland Mouret, and Katy England and her husband, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, the heads-up on her new collection for Opening Ceremony. She’ll be back in the Double Club on Sunday to present a “men’s collection for women,” she was telling everyone. The wide-legged navy slouchy pants she was wearing really whet the appetite.
