Lou Doillon by Lee Cooper

The Chloë Sevigny collaboration with Opening Ceremony is getting a lot of coverage, and I'm not complaining (I swear!) because is the best celebrity line I've seen by far. However, hardly anybody talks about Lou Doillon's collection for Lee Cooper. She signed for three years to design sixteen pieces including; high-waisted pants, t-shirts and accessories.

Lee Cooper is an English label initially created for workwear in 1908, becoming a well-known denim brand later.

Vogue Paris features in its web this cool video where she talks, draws, models and sings (don't know why but her voice there reminds me so much of Devendra Banhart). She names Oliver Twist as one of her main inspirations for the collection, but I do see her own style as the hugest influence.


Watch the video to see the complete -disappointing- collection :

indeed. compared to chloe's line lou's one is pourly promoted. the video is really cool- like a short film from the inside-apart from its promotional function it works alone. but the line.. i don't like. or i find it very 'flat' (no surprises-good or bad).

Ha ha, you caught me out! Indeed he was! I guess i made that mistake because Balenciaga despite it being of spanish origin, became very successful after Balenciaga opened his couture house on Avenue George in Paris, and so is described as being a French couture house. Well spotted Allure!:-)
