The mystery is finally solved. On the cover of her next single, You Know Me Better, Roisin Murphy wears Givenchy Couture Spring 2007. Roisin spilled the beans in the comments of my favourite myspace spy.
Riccardo Tisci, the creative director at Givenchy, says that the collection was inspired by “the metamorphosis of sailors into mermaids.”
You Know Me Better is out at the end of March
Listen to remixes by Toddla T and Guy Williams (via the great Roisin blog)
Here’s the complete Roisin fashion stalk-a-thon. She wears:
Givenchy Couture on the You Know Me Better cover
Sandra Backlund on the Overpowered album cover
Maison Martin Margiela in the video to Let Me Know
Gareth Pugh: Overpowered video, Let Me Know single cover, Let Me Know video
Viktor & Rolf on the cover of the Overpowered single
Here is the new Roisin Murphy video for Let Me Know (quicktime) and the fashion spies are at it again: Coat by Gareth Pugh, dress by Maison Martin Margiela.
I’m kinda slow this Friday evening and Roisin Murphy is on a fashion roll. Just a few minutes after finding out about the single cover, here is the video to Overpowered (real, youtube). It seems Roisin is over V&R already, riding the 283 bus, doing her laundry and taking a piss in a lovely Gareth Pugh ensemble. I so want to be like her.

Is Kelis wearing Gareth Pugh in her new video, Lil’ Star?
It could be a custom made cross between this and that.
And don’t you all think that Kelis looks increasingly like Morris Day (pictured below), lead singer of the Prince protÃ©gÃ© band The Time?
One of my favourite album covers. The Time was 1982.
Pointy mouth. Love it. Have to practice that look.
Check out Morris’ early 90ties Kelis look in Jerk Out.
Pugh vs. Bowery
Showstudio has tons of Gareth Pugh, including his fashion shows. Love them (minus the S&M connotations).
And there is his Make-Up-Athon (quicktime, youtube). I want the gold star face.
In case you all wondered, who is this Gareth Pugh and why is produzentin blogging about him? Well, this should cast away your doubts: Kylie wears some Pugh on her Homecoming tour, looking increasingly like Mel & Kim:
And maybe in 20 years, Kylie will sport a Limahl hairdo.
Andreas told me about him and then I saw the runway show on Canadian fashion TV tonight. Who is it? Gareth Pugh or Leigh Bowery?
