to swoon.

i'm so very glad of roisin murphy's existence. sometimes i wander who else could possess her fearless power to rock the more difficult ensembles from a designer's collection to such an "undoubtable tee."

gareth pugh on a bus. viktor and rolf stage lit dress on a street corner. martin margiela to a premiere..

she can always be relied upon to satisfy our senses; fusing perfectly sound and visuals and the bloody marvelous music video for "you know me better" is living proof.

i stumbled across some rather sacred text; Claire Edmondson, who styled the video with roisin shares the love and the ideas behind the outfits. and "fyi", she put Feist in that blue sequined jumpsuit in her music video for "1, 2, 3, 4", so clearly she's good news.

Claire Edmondson “Roisin is really inspiring, she brings so much to the table. Usually at a fitting you pull out things and everyone gets really scared. But I’d show Roisin something and she’d say ‘yeah its amazing, and what about this?’ She was embracing everything I had and wanting to push it further."

“The green dress and pink hotpants, that’s a vintage look. There were so many costume changes you can’t really plan them ahead of time. I just did a massive, massive shop basically and then you start building outfits from there. That green dress I knew would be great somewhere, I just didn’t know in what context, but it would end up in the video. And it turned out to be a really strong look, I really like that one. And the ruff again is by a local designer."

i'm a real nerd when it comes to stylists and their thought processes. especially when it has something to do with such an exciting and innovative artist. click here for more breakdown of the costumes, fellow nerds.

I'm flattered, thank you for your kind words. I actually read your blog often, but have been absent from the blog world lately, due to work/travel.
