Opening Ceremony founders and Kenzo designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim recouped from fashion week(s) as well as anyone we know—with a vacation to an experimental film festival in Thailand, co-curated by Tilda Swinton and attended by the likes of Swinton, Ryan McGinley, Chloë Sevigny, Waris Ahluwalia, and Haider Ackermann. Below, they sent back a few photos from their time in paradise.
Carol and I were ready for a tropical adventure after Paris fashion week. We had been invited to the debut of Film on the Rocks Yao Noi, an experimental film festival co-curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton along with a fun group of artists and friends like Ryan McGinley, Chloê Sevigny, and Tom Sachs. Chomwan and Nat, the organizers of the event, didn’t let us down with the immersive, fun (and educational!) program that they put together with the curators. The experience of watching a range of films at different venues in and around the Six Senses eco-resort on Yao Noi was an unbelievable journey. We never thought we’d be going to a film premiere on a floating raft in the middle of the ocean! Apart from Ole Scheeren’s jaw-dropping temporary cinema, we traveled to the jungle to see a one-time-only performance by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Arto Lindsay, went snorkeling where Leonardo DiCaprio filmed The Beach, and ate a lot of amazing Thai food!

Chloë Sevigny’s Resort collection for her Opening Ceremony line has just hit stores, and to kick it off, she’s invited Team O.C. for a look into her world—and her apartment. In the second installment of their ongoing video series, Sevigny shows off a few of the gems she’s amassed over the years, including a custom Proenza Schouler dress from the CFDA Awards (ripped under the arms from vigorous dancing), a Raf Simons sweater from his Peter Saville collaboration, a vintage Versace suit, and, of course, plenty of her own new wares. Five minutes well spent is below.

Ever dream of going shopping with Chloë Sevigny? This week you can, thanks to Hugo Boss, which is giving away a shopping trip with the actress at its Meatpacking District store tomorrow to a Foursquare follower of the label. [Page Six]
A new documentary about Charles Eames, titled Eames: The Architect and the Painter, reveals the personal style of his “somewhat more elusive” wife, Ray. “A more subtle attraction is Ray’s wardrobe: the starchy white blouses, trim square-necked jumpers, waist-cropped jackets and dirndl skirts that she wore most days and throughout her lifetime,” writes The New York Times‘ Ruth La Ferla. The movie, at IFC Center in NYC, will be broadcast on PBS on December 19. [NYT]
Sephora is stepping up its fashion game thanks to Prabal Gurung. The beauty retailer has enlisted the designer to create new uniforms, set to debut in late April, for all of its beauty advisers in North America. [WWD]
We’ve glimpsed quite a few exposed shoulders on the streets and at the Resort collections this summer. Casual, collared dresses popped up at Richard Chai Love and Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, and for after-hours examples, check out Vionnet‘s royal blue, long-sleeved frock, or the framboise silk gown by Sophie Theallet that Karolina Kurkova wore to the Ischia Global Film Festival. (In other news: There is an Ischia Global Film Festival.) Why we like these dresses: Well-placed cutouts highlight a part of the body that doesn’t usually require hours of upkeep at the gym. As Donna Karan famously said, “Shoulders are the one place a woman will never get fat—so show ‘em!”
