Kim Gordon designed it, Chloë Sevigny worked the runway, Mike Mills drew the logo, Kathleen Hannah pimped it out, and Spike helped run the fashion show. X-Girl was a perfect storm of creative energy in 1994, and here’s the very Nineties video to prove it:

If that’s not enough nostalgia for you, how about a Vice Magazine photo shoot with Chloë showing off the X-Girl line? Still begging for more? Here’s Vice’s interview with co-designer Daisy Von Furth, where she talks about styling some “cute kid” named Mark Ronson in a photo shoot for Spike’s Dirt magazine, and mentions that Chloë will soon be starring in some movie written by “this kid Harmony Korine.” Also: Doc Martens, flannel and black skinny jeans are so out in ‘94. Which, if I’m predicting the trend cycles correctly, means you’d be wise to invest in some ringer tees and vintage X-Girl before the kids on Gossip Girl start sporting A-line minis.

Mirror/Dash

The origins of Kim Gordon’s new Hardy jacket— the inaugural piece from her Mirror/Dash clothing venture— are apparent: its got Françoise Hardy’s favorite menswear details, assertive shoulders and military symmetry, but it also flatters a girl’s girliness. The model chosen to display the jacket for Mirror/Dash’s lookbook, not coincidentally, shares Hardy’s thick brown bangs and insouciant gaze. Moi vouloir toi, indeed.
