Kim Gordon may be best known for co-founding rock band Sonic Youth, but that is all about to change: Gordon has teamed up with Italian luxury label Sportmax on the second chapter of their Carte Blanche series. “They have a longstanding fashion reputation,” Gordon says. “They’re fabrics are beautiful and they make great coats.”
For her part in the collaboration, Gordon put together three limited-edition pieces—a dress ($275), tunic ($225) and t-shirt ($135)—inspired by abstract watercolors, and finished in shades of gray, blue and black. Her favorite? The tunic, thanks to its “leafy, feather feel,” although, Gordon says, “I can’t really afford their stuff.”
The Kim Gordon for Sportmax Carte Blanche collection launches on September 10, Fashion’s Night Out, at Sportmax’s Soho boutique (450 West Broadway.) Following the launch, you’ll find the collection t Sportmax boutiques and select Max Mara boutiques.
