About This Book

This lively volume celebrates the contributions to inventive fashionable living by the New York– based style innovator Opening Ceremony—a bible for the fashion-forward and culturally savvy alike. In 2002, when Carol Lim and Humberto Leon opened the downtown Manhattan retail shop Opening Ceremony, they created what has become the most innovative fashion and culture destination in New York. Bringing together the best emerging American talent with international designers and historic brands, Opening Ceremony represents the best in fashion and has played a vital role in launching the careers of many young designers. Celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary, Opening Ceremony is a visually rich documentation of Leon and Lim’s diverse inspirations, collaborators, and creative community, including Ryan McGinley, Rodarte, and Alexander Wang. A celebratory look at New York’s quintessential style headquarters, this book will captivate and inspire readers from fashion, art, music, film, and beyond.

Reviews

  • “…an eye-popping scrapbook that—jammed with Terence Koh doodles, Terry Richardson portraits, and amusing conversations—is as enticing as a trip to the store itself.” ~W Magazine

    “…published in honor of Opening Ceremony’s 10th anniversary, captures the brand’s approachable downtown cool using personal photographs, interviews with family members, and look-book images to chart the company’s history by year. The scrapbook like volume has a surprisingly intimate feel making it the perfect coffee table acquisition for the street smart stylephile.” ~Details Magazine
