After modeling in nearly every presentation of Chloë’s Opening Ceremony collaboration from the beginning, we knew that musician/all-around awesome person/Chloë pal, Lissy Trullie, was the girl to pose in Chloë’s latest collection. Chloë does, after all, star in Lissy’s latest music video. Get to know Lissy here, and definitely don’t stall on picking up her latest album out on Downtown Records!
Your neighborhood (in NY)
What is something about you that no one would expect?
I'm a shark conservationist.
Most prized possession?
That my head and hands are still intact.
I think you’re the only one of Chloë’s friends to be in every lookbook for her line! Which collection was your favorite?
I honestly love all the collections but if I had to choose one it would the unisex collection, because of the book that was made for it, Reds
Any anecdotes from modeling in her presentations?
I guess I'd have to refer to the above question... I know it doesn't count as the actual presentation, but the unisex collection produced a book, Reds
, shot by David Armstrong and modeled only by redheads––this redhead included. It also featured an impressive array of collaborating artists. Anyone who knows me is annoyingly aware that I'm a very
proud ginger who's openly obsessed with my own kind. That being said, the experience of modeling for the book was a first for me. There were 17 of us in one room, reds of all kinds and all ages. I imagine for a non-ginger, walking into the house where we shot the book was creepy at the very least. For me though, it was one of my happiest moments.
Which is your favorite piece from this collection?
The pink Dave Gahan buttondown shirt
Best gift you’ve ever given?
I'm hoping this will be the best gift that I haven't yet given––I've agreed to be the surrogate for a couple that is very close to my heart.
Best gift you’ve ever received?
It's a tie between the soundtrack to The Hunger
(1983) on vinyl and a Chabad Hasidic fur hat.
What is something that everyone should try at least once?
Saying "yes" to trying something at least once.
What's the most played song on your iPod?
That varies from month to month. Maybe some of my top repeats are: Scott Walker's "Duchess", Micachu & the Shapes' "Turn Me Well", Brian Eno' "Here Come The Warm Jets", The Go-Betweens "The Clarke Sisters", and Franz Schubert's "Piano Trio No. 2 in E Flat Major".
If you were on a deserted island––5 necessities:
My collection of Norman Mailer books, a piano, a guitar, a notebook, a pencil, and a four-track. (I think I've cheated by counting a collection of books as one necessity...)
What would you choose as your last meal on earth?
Boeuf bourguignon, an extra dirty vodka martini, and Swedish Fish.
What's your spirit animal?
The Sleeper Shark
