The Opening Ceremony brand held an unusual show at New York Fashion Week - a political campaign dedicated to civic responsibility, the fight for one's rights and the upcoming US presidential election. Multiculturalism became the main theme of the new collection of the brand: each of the models refers to traditional ornaments or colors of different countries and nationalities. The show took place in a studio where political debates are usually filmed, and throughout the show there was a political debate on stage, moderated by Portlandia authors Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Along the perimeter of the hall during the show, there were male standard-bearers in bombers with the symbols of several dozen countries, immigrants from which live in the United States.
Outstanding women were invited to the show, showcasing Opening Ceremony clothing and taking part in the discussion: transgender activist Sarah McBride, NBC host of the evening TV show Adie Bryant, actresses Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Williams, Ali Wong and Claire appeared on the stage Danes. One of the most memorable was the release of Whoopi Goldberg, who declared: "Only in America can a girl like me be on a stage like this." Opening Ceremony designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon also prepared a "political agenda" for the show - a booklet that tells the stories of each of the heroines who took part in it, and describes the societal issues that politicians should touch upon. One of the pages is dedicated to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
A few days ago, Opening Ceremony unveiled a nostalgic 90s collaboration with Esprit, featuring 40 mens, womens and unisex garments in vibrant colors and loose styles.
