Chloe Sevigny for O.C. and Vision Streetwear

If you’ve been reading this blog from its inception, you know that I am a die-hard fan of vintage Vision Streetwear & have a pretty decent collection from this 80s/90s skate wear brand. I was just at checking out the collections for Resort (which I’m pretty nonplused about) until I stumbled upon Chloe Sevigny for O.C. line in which she collaborates with Vision Street Wear. Vision’s iconic logo is spewed all over the runway. One gal is even sporting the Vision Street Wear bicycle shorts that I have been searching for and dreaming of for many, many years. (See this post) Indeed, vintage Vision Street Wear is hard to get a hold of, but I think I’d feel like a supreme schmuck if I laid down the $200 those shorts will probably cost. What should I do, dear readers? I am torn. Oh I must insert a prayer here: Dear God, please do not let Vision Street Wear become a trend because I cannot bear to see every hipster in Los Angeles wearing my most cherished label.
This next outfit best represents the aesthetics of 90s skatewear - the jumpsuit with its simple lackadaisical shape, and the beret style cap.

The cheetah print was a familiar pattern in Vision Street Wear shoes & clothes.

  1. I love everything she makes!

  2. Speaking as someone with (almost) no familiarity with designer fashion but a very strong understanding of skateboard branding I feel compelled to comment on the multiple layers of irony in reviving the Vision Street Wear label.

    People who are considering purchasing these items need to know that even the most open minded interpreter of skateboard history would admit that no one development within skateboarding is more closely associated with the term 'poser' than Vision Street Wear.

    That said, these are graphically interesting designs that could be seen as speaking to the vacuous nature of the 80s.
