Florence Welch, Frida Giannini, Diplo, Alexander Wang, Yoko Ono, Proenza Schouler, George Craig, Christopher Bailey, Esperanza Spalding, Francisco Costa, Janelle Monae, Karl Lagerfeld, Kanye West, Rodarte, Donatella Versace and M.I.A are all featured in “Behind The Muses” for W Magazine, reports BeautyisDiverse.com.
The music studded issue is a must have for fans of fashion’s little sister and the music that drives its pulse.
In the issue, photographer Max Vadukul captures Kanye West with Rodarte, M.I.A with Donatella Versace, Janelle Monae with Karl Lagerfeld and Justin Beiber’s vanquisher at this year’s Grammy Awards, Esperanza Spalding with Francisco Kosta, to name a few.
The accompanying article on how fashion and music share a marriage of convenience and cooperation was written by Deborah Harry of Blondie who writes, “When Blondie burst onto the scene in the mid-Seventies, we couldn’t imagine that designers would be interested in us. We had no access to that world. Most of our fashion choices — ripped-up fishnets and pinned-together things — were economical, what we could afford. Blondie arrived at the crossover between glam rock and the deconstructive period of punk and New Wave. In fashion, in music, in art, everything was broken down and ripped apart.”
The issue is out now and features Christina Aguilera on the cover. It’s a must have! Read more here.
