Chloe Sevigny: 'I have all my clothes from high school'

Chloe Sevigny is a self-confessed "vintage freak" and is always on the hunt for one-of-a-kind items.

Actress and model Chloe Sevigny still has a wardrobe full of clothes from her high school days in the late 1980s.

The 41-year-old star first found fame walking for designers including Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton, and while she has gone on to design clothes herself, she still dips into her old wardrobe from time to time.

"I have an extensive archive in Connecticut and have held on to most of my wardrobe from high school on," she told the Jimmy Choo website. "I sometimes unearth things like a pair of jeans, or a sweater, T-shirt or boots, and cycle them back into my everyday wardrobe. Or find an old designer piece I wore to an event and then wear it to a wedding or a party."

Chloe spoke to the designer shoe brand to coincide with her new gig fronting its spring/summer 2016 collection.

The campaign images take the form of a road trip across America with Chloe appearing in a variety of different settings wearing various styles of shoes.

"I loved the white LUC pump with the ankle strap and the red vinyl at the toe cleavage," she enthused. "These shoes would be great with jeans or a sexy dress. They reminded me of white pumps I'd wear in the 90s, with everything. I love a white shoe, it's a bold statement."

Chloe describes herself as a "vintage freak" and loves seeking out one-of-a-kind finds in New York, where she lives.

"I have a path through certain neighborhoods in NY that have all my spots," she explained. "I know who has what as far as era and brands that I like. I'm mostly always on the vintage hunt; it's an addiction. I think it has something to do with the thrill of the hunt and the idea that you'll be the only one with the garment."
