Chloe Sevigny praises vintage for adding 'individuality' to fashion

Chloe Sevigny feels more comfortable in second-hand clothing than new pieces.

Chloe Sevigny finds vintage style evokes more "individuality" than brand new clothes do.

The American Psycho star recently teamed up with online retailer Vestiaire Collective to curate a collection of retro pieces, which she hand-picked.

Discussing her love for old school fashion, Chloe noted that not only do vintage pieces make people stand out, but the idea of re-using pieces is also beneficial.

"There is more individuality in vintage," she told Vestiaire Collective's website. "I feel young kids nowadays are appreciating old garments more and how they're made and finding individuality in disposable fashion.

"I have always been anti fast-fashion. Of course there were the teen years when I was obsessed with Esprit or Guess jeans and those kinds of brands. I still am attracted to certain luxury items and high fashion. I will go into Miu Miu and be entirely seduced by with the whole jewel box experience and feel like that's going to make me into something else."

While she's open to buying high-end pieces, Chloe prefers to find them second-hand, citing shops Wasteland in Los Angeles and Tokio 7 in New York as two of her go-to stores.

Chloe is so passionate about sustainability that she even brings this approach to the workplace when getting into character for a project.

"I feel more comfortable wearing something second-hand than a new garment," she added. "Even when I do movies, the costume designers always want to get new things because they want multiples, but I ask them to wash it and beat it up because I feel more comfortable in something that has already been lived in. It's a strange security for me."
