Opening Ceremony: A Fairytale
Seminal New York clothing store Opening Ceremony has gone from strength to strength over the years. I remember buying my first pair of Cheap Mondays in the original New York store in around 2005, swooning at their choice of designers like Acne and APC in 2008, and now they have branches in London, LA, another in New York and so on as well as designing their own line for Kenzo.
Founded by uni pals Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, their collaborations with Spike Lee and Chloe Sevingny have been met with huge acclaim (and reams of press).
To celebrate not only their incredible success but their love and passion for fashion, art, music and film, the pair have teamed with Rizzoli for a new book, out now.
Check the video above for a pretttty cute history into their humble beginnings.
