Chloe Sevigny on Interview Magazine
Here is a great editorial to feature on Interview Magazine surrounding the talented and gorgeous Chloe Sevigny. First off the photography by Craig McDean and styling Karl Templer provides an impressive visual experience while the interview by Kim Gordon makes for a great read.
KIM GORDON: This is so funny because we’ve known each other for almost 20 years. [Sevigny gasps] It’s hard to believe.
CHLOË SEVIGNY: Really?
GORDON: I was trying to think of when we met. It was maybe ’92, when we did the video for “Sugar Kane.”
SEVIGNY: I was still in high school then. I was a senior.
GORDON: You grew up in Darien, Connecticut. Were your parents freaked out about you coming to New York as a teenager?
SEVIGNY: Surprisingly not. Even before I came to New York, I was really into going up North. I was obsessed with “northbound.” It was a thing with me and my girlfriends. We’d go to Amherst or Burlington or New Hampshire. We were really anti going southbound on the I-95.
GORDON: Was that a way of rebelling?
SEVIGNY: I don’t know. I guess we were just into nature and more rural open spaces. That was what the North offered. The South was the city and Jersey and D.C., all of which seemed so condensed. And I had a Volkswagen bus my sophomore and junior years. We’d drive up and sleep inside the bus in Harvard Square or Vermont, which, looking back, is much more dangerous than going into New York City. I said to my mom, “I can’t believe you and Dad let me drive around and sleep in this bus. What the hell were you thinking?” [Gordon laughs] They always said there were more good people than bad in the world. They were kind of trusting, so I don’t think they realized some of the scenarios I got into.
