Opening Ceremony, founded in 2002 by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, two Los Angeles natives who have turned their flagship store on Soho’s Howard Street into an internationally recognized brand with a strong e-commerce following, a West Hollywood shop, and four more shops in Japan, is known for its offbeat, incredibly ahead-of-the-pulse aesthetic.
Which makes it the ideal locale for this Twin Peaks capsule collection.
In 2011, Leon and Lim were also appointed creative directors of Kenzo, the Parisian brand owned by the luxury conglomerate Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH). Last year, the duo received the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Fashion Design. “Which is sort of crazy, because we’re not really designers,” Leon tells the New Yorker.
Opening Ceremony made a name for itself selling troves of treasures the two brought back from trips to Hong Kong to New York hipsters, indie rockers, and skaters. Leon and Lim evolved over the past fifteen years alongside their designer friends like Alexander Wang, Rodarte, and Proenza Schouler, labels that are now synonymous with the Opening Ceremony brand. Additionally, alternative fashion darling Chloë Sevigny‘s signature line debuted at Opening Ceremony, and the OG New York it girl wouldn’t have it any other way. Opening Ceremony’s own line of clothing is heavily influenced by street-wear, nightlife, and androgyny.
