X-Girl ‘94

Published March 10, 2010 by Graham

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.

Mike Mills plays bass for R.E.M. 

Mike Mills makes great stuff with his brain. Lots of video things you’ve seen before and have maybe even tried to copy yourself. But also, lots of non-video things. The above picture is of Mike’s latest book of video and non-video things. You know, graphics, posters, films, pictures, music, commercials all around prettiness. Like this dude…

…remember that dude? Bet you wish you created that, huh? Me too. Oh well, thankfully Mike did the job for us, and put it in book form for everyone to see. Cop one here.
