Chloë Sevigny has had a busy couple of days, or more specifically, the Internet has had a busy couple of days writing about her, because the promotional video for Proenza Schouler's new collection has arrived, and Chloë is the star, alongside Liv Tyler, just casually. Add to this the fact that Kim Gordon has just released her memoir, Girl In A Band, and Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney has just announced her memoir will be released later this year, and this new piece of Chloë Sevigny News is like some kind of Nostalgia For The Girls Of The Nineties climax. Whatever it is, we're in to it.

Kim Gordon started a street wear label called X-Girl in the '90s, and she recruited friend and muse Chloë Sevigny to star in this promotional video for the label, originally released in 1995. According to Bullett, Nowness unearthed and re-released the video last year.

The video explores the themes that underpin X-Girl (and Sonic Youth, and Chloë Sevigny) particularly gender. Watch:
