Roisin Murphy’s Fashion Marathon

29 September 2008


Can anyone hazard a guess as to the size of Roisin's wardrobe back home? No, us neither - it would only lead to pure clothing envy. After all the singer's been on a fashion marathon. In London she was all smoothed down hair, voluminous shoulders, then came Milan and a fashion marathon as she went to almost every show. And now she's popped up in Paris too. Phew! One day she's a sailor, the next a librarian and the next a she-devil from outta space! So, who is this Irish lady who has become the leader of the pack when it comes to being a style chameleon? Well, you'll probably recognise her as the lead singer of Moloko (remember the classic 1999 dance hit Sing It Back?), she is now a solo singer/songwriter and much loved style icon by those in know - she's even had stage outfits produced by Viktor & Rolf, Gareth Pugh and Givenchy (to name but a few). Known for her super shoulder padded Margiela pieces, crazy hats, even quirkier songs and her ability to carry these looks off, as she told Grazia at the Luella show ‘I just love fashion'. That's self-evident Roisin. Let's take her Milan trip: from head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana to tons of Moschino including two military-style blue coats and a black fringed coat, a Gold YSL bag, Ferragamo heels to a Gucci purple satin dress with a brown coat and much, much more. Of course, there is another mastermind behind her looks, Kabir, her stylist from Drama magazine - who we'll be catching up with later on this week to get all the inside info on Roisin's style. But in the mean time, we're sure you'll have something to say about her Milan fashion week of style...
