A page from Chloë Sevigny’s devil-may-care fashion playbook.

As musician Kim Gordon states in the forward of Chloë Sevigny (Rizzoli, $35), “She dresses in subtext.” From ’90s prom photos in Darien, CT, to snaps from music festivals, ad campaigns and the Academy Awards, the book’s 200-plus pages offer a visual diary of Sevigny’s evolving style, and an overview of the many themes that dictate her aesthetic identity (films, music, L.A. and her native New York). Now 40, Sevigny, who stars in the Netflix thriller series “Bloodline,” continues to work on her collection for Opening Ceremony, dreaming up edgy street wear for the next generation of nonconformist tastemakers.
