FKA twigs’ zany fashion/art zine, AVANTgarden, just dropped. Now in its fourth iteration, the Insta-exclusive pub delivers a complete pictorial syntax of sartorial sass, subversive subcultures, fierce fashion gypsies and dapper rappers (A$AP Rocky included). Shot in the Rotten Apple and lensed by frontline photographer Orograph, these optical opioids bristle with beauty, weirdness and palpable avant-garde energy.
Sporting gear from the masterful Nasir Mazhar (our fave!), Stephen Jones, John Galliano and cult trailblazers FECAL MATTER (aliens Hannah and Raj – below), twigs tinkers with aesthetics in the coolest, most experimental ways possible. “Welcome to AVANTgarden. “Fresh out of a government testing facility, alien princess FKA twigs takes New York City by storm,” reads the zine’s intro. We love the fresh fonts and inventive format punctuated by eye-popping graphics, garments and underground grit.
The otherworldly songstress also released a new vid, ‘Fukk Sleep’, featuring pretty boy A$AP Rocky wearing neon knit balaclavas, endless bling and billowing thick blunt smoke from virtually every orifice. It follows the two on a cathartic odyssey in NYC, acting out nihilistic urges, smashing car windows, ransacking LES bodegas in a Mickey and Mallory Knox kind of way and quantum tunneling to safe spaces when the po-po have them in their optical laser sights. Twigs looks terrifically stunning and performs an erotic striptease at the end that gave us a throbbing, intractable boner. Doiiinnnng. Watch here and below. We mashed-up the magical imagery.
