Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth introduces her new clothing line, Mirror/Dash this week. The maiden piece is a wool jacket inspired by 60′s French chanteuse, Françoise Hardy. This is not Gordon’s first venture into fashion design as she and Daisy Von Furth were the creative force behind X-Girl in the 1990′s. Mirror/Dash is a collaboration between Gordon, and friends Melinda Wansbrough and Jeffrey Monterio. Kim is often seen in the front row at Fashion Week checking out collections by her friend Marc Jacobs. Sonic Youth played at Marc Jacobs’ Fall show in 2008 but the bands connection to the designer goes back further to 1993 when Jacobs’ grunge collection for Perry Ellis took to the runway (on Chloe Sevigny) in the video for Sugar Cane. Mirror/Dash will be stocked at Opening Ceremony and can be purchased at the designer’s site. See Kim and her inspiraton here.
