Musical Muses

I just adore this spread in W Magazine, July edition. Behind The Muses features 8 designers and the musicians who inspire them. This is great because in some cases it’s a bit expected and the musician has the same sort of style as the designer, but for others it’s a deeper appreciation for the artist and their personality, which is ultimately in line with the brand. Definitely worth the short read, in which Deborah Harry talks about the roots of each designer/musician love affair. Note the reason I say affair is because some designers, a-hem Karl, tend to change muses with every season collection.
