Opening Ceremony Gets the Terry Richardson Touch


Let’s just hope they washed thoroughly afterwards. The provocative photog brought his white background and cheerful irreverence to shoot models Lindsey Wixson and Paolo Anchisi for Opening Ceremony‘s spring look book. Gallery after Paolo’s JUMP!

Opening Ceremony Gets the Terry Richardson Touch

Terry and Opening Ceremony apparently go way back, as Richardson explains:

“I’ve been friends with Opening Ceremony for years, and we’ve always wanted to work together. The idea was really simple — it was about having fun with the clothes, and Lindsey Wixson was the perfect fit.”

Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon prefers the look book over a runway show, saying:

“All the right pieces came together and we were shooting the right people and we wanted to have fun.”

The shoot definitely looks fun — and Paolo, unfairly, is still stunning even while crossing his eyes  and goofing around  – and the clothes are great. I’m already on board with those matching shorts/shoes combo and Lindsey’s oversized striped sweater.

Perhaps eschewing a one-off runway show for an easily distributed  look book isn’t so bad an idea. Thoughts?
