fka twigs premieres new tracks at label showcase
The London auteur reveals the next part of her creative process and it features Rick Owens' wife, Michele Lamy
New visuals for several new Twig's track were unveiled today. The first, starring Rick Owens' wife, the designer and pure icon of style, Michele Lamy, appears to be directed by Twigs. Typically esoteric and reliably awesome, the short focuses on close-up's of the brilliantly bejewelled-mouthed Lamy, ending on a shot of the fashion maestro's wife blowing a dandelion bud from her mouth.
The second short reconfigures Twigs as a blow-up doll who wakes up as her human self at the end - pregnant. Possibly a nod to the many rumours swirling concerning her expecting R-Patz child ahead of their wedding later this year. The last visual, unveiled at the showcase by record label XL, features a denim clad dance routine and is all a bit awesome.
Also performing at the showcase in London were Ibeyi, who performed an incredible cover of Jay Electronica's Better In Tune With The Infinite, Shamir and i-D's Class of 2015 alumni Lapsley.
