As part of our countdown to the official launch of the new Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony collection on January 15th, we're interviewing the five lovely girls who inspired the silhouettes of the DRESSES. Today: the Lissy, a boxy swing dress inspired by musician Lissy Trullie.

Rory Satran: How did you meet Chloe?
Lissy Trullie: I met Chloe about 8 or 9 years ago when the both of us were in a Jess Holzworth show at American Fine Arts.
RS: What about your namesake dress is totally you?
LT: Totes. She always hits the nail on the head when it comes to my taste.
RS: What would you wear with your namesake dress?
LT: I actually love what I was wearing with the dress the day of the PRESENTATION. Black and white floral tights, the Nana Chealsea boot, and a small gray wool pullover. The only other thing I'd add would be my motorcycle jacket... But that's probably because it's a security blanket, not a fashion statement.
RS: What item would you most like to steal from Chloe's closet?
LT: That's a no brainer. Chloe has the actual jean jacket worn by Linda Manz in the film Out of the Blue. I'm a psycho fan of the movie and Linda's character, CeBe.
RS: Describe your perfect Saturday.
LT: Hmm. It'd definitely start with brunch, then, if the weather was nice, I'd love to wander around the city and get lost. I've done it a million times, but it never gets old and it always uncovers something new.
RS: What did you draw over and over as a kid?
LT: Sharks and portraits of Ian Svenonius.
RS: What are you into at the moment?
LT: I'm a compulsive music collector. At the moment, I've gathered the various versions of the song "Stay with Me". So far Terry Reid's rendition is my favorite. As far as books, I'm currently reading a book of all of Sarah Kane's plays and just finished The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule. Also I've been searching for a vintage print or poster of Peter Berlin. No luck yet.
RS: Any New Year's resolutions?
LT: Try to unlearn my perceptions and get over being shy.
