Fashion is already crazy, but when you throw Spike Jonze into the mix you know you will get something wild and different. This was the case with the Opening Ceremony FW15 line. The FW15 line was inspired by: Spike Jonze’s archive of early BMX, skateboard, and behind-the-scenes photography. Photos appearing in the exhibition, primarily 35-milimeter film shots, spanned two decades, ranging from 1985-2005 which was turned into wearable clothing.
The Opening Ceremony featured, not just a room dedicated to photo’s that Spike Jonze, but they also printed these images on fabric and made a pants and coat wardrobe.
We took some photo’s and videos from the opening night and put them into this great video. Enjoy!
“There are so many moments with Spike that stick out and so many that were never documented—just Spike being Spike, getting into the deepest trouble that nobody but himself could get out of. There’s a lot of stuff not on the walls. I remember a moment when I was riding a vert ramp and he was like, “‘Let’s see what it’s like if we put all of these balloons on you.'” That’s a memory where feel like I barely escaped sheer disaster. But yeah, it’s definitely a flashback.” —Mat Hoffman
