The fashion industry bible cited Twigs for the “way she dresses and carries herself, which is every bit as idiosyncratic as her music.”
Pattinson may have focused the spotlight on the UK singer, songwriter and performance artist, but Twigs has taken it from there. She appeared in a stunning series of performances that showcased her unique talent.
Her fashion style is just as eclectic as her music. “Even if there is a punkness to her, twigs is naturally chic,” UK stylist and BFF Karen Clarkson tells the magazine.
Twigs is Clarkson’s muse. She’s inspired by her when she creates Twig’s different looks. Twigs “puts a DIY spin on everything from vintage finds to borrowed couture,” the magazine notes.
“A few years ago I found out that there’s a lot of Gypsy blood on my mother’s side,” she says. “I’m wild in that way—I’ve been brought up to do my own thing.”
Being innovative–in her look and work–is her chief priority, both sartorial and otherwise, but elegance is never far behind, the mag notes.
“Work always reflects how your brain is morphing,” she she says. “And right now is a very morphy time for me.”
Movement has always fascinated her and her latest obsession is the tango. “I want to learn to tango,” she says, “but I wouldn’t seek it out—I’ll wait to meet someone off the street who could teach me.”
Once she finds that someone, she works on her moves until she’s mastered them.
“She wants to train every day,” says Derek Auguste, who is currently teaching her how to vogue. “She’s not just trying to touch on a few aspects of vogueing; she’s trying to get in with the girls.”
Pattinson and Twigs are currently looking for a place to live in New York City. Twigs hopes to make the move in March when her current tour wraps.
Don’t be too surprised to see girls on the street adopting her style while she draws on street-style herself.
“You have to give a part of yourself to a particular culture, rather than just borrow [inspiration] from it or enjoy looking cool because you’re there,” she says.
“Everything you reference, you need to give back to it in some way.”
