Chloe & Birkenstocks

Chloe 540x361 Chloe & Birkenstocks

Chloe Sevigny was profiled in the NY Times over the weekend and as is often the case the theme of the story was anchored on her status as a style maven. Chloe however, protests that she’s over fashion when she states:

“I’m just not as excited by it,” Ms. Sevigny said, of both. “I don’t know if it is a reflection of what they are producing, or just my feelings toward it. I bought a pair of Birkenstocks today — let’s be real. I wanted a chunky sandal that was functional. That should tell you where I am at as far as fashion.”

Which, all we can say is oh Chloe, we think you’re fab but you know as well as anyone that all the cool, New York fashion girls are wearing Birkenstocks or some iteration thereof. If any more evidence is needed there’s a recent Yelp post on the Buffalo Exchange thrift store in the East Village written by (yet another) miffed seller complaining about the store’s purchase for resale policy (balanced by those haughtily bragging, ”You just have to know what they want!”) with her ire raised by a clerk who stated that “high heels are out of style.” As if! Well, the truth is, they sort of are at the moment.

P.S. The above image accompanied the article and was shot prior to the presentation of Chloe’s collaboration with Opening Ceremony. Note the lack of heels!
