Oh La La Roux

Trouble In Paradise is the best possible comeback I could have imagined from La Roux. I think the songwriting surpasses her first album and I love the retro-futuristic instrumentation that really makes everything sound timeless.

“The human body has always been the central, on-going theme in art. In the 1960s we had happenings such as Fluxus and The Factory. So actual people’s living bodies became part of the art. We decided a long time ago to explore that, as a challenge to hypocrisy. And also for our interests to ask, ‘Where are the boundaries?’ In some cultures you can have six wives and walk around naked, and in others you’ve to be covered head to toe if you’re a woman. It’s arbitrary. Who’s making those rules? People in power. How do they enforce it? Through intimidation and violence. So the body is important as a signifier of an attitude towards how we evolve.”

Hello, I'm really interested in your ideas and theories regarding fashion but I must admit that some go over my head. But I suppose that's what keeps me so interested. Anyway I'd like to know your thoughts on viewing fashion as a full body illustration, a way of telling a story of sorts. Is that something you are at all interested in? Is fashion even the right word to use or is style more fitting?



Of course I’m interested in that idea — that’s really everything I’m about at the end of the day. Fashion is a story of context and clothes that is eventually operated on an individual level through your personal choices on the chapters that involve you. Style’s your personal agency within the larger realm of the thing. But fashion — fashion is a story. From the manufacturing of the thread (even before that really) to the people who buy the clothes we donate after we’ve loved them too much. It’s always a story. Our clothes illustrate the agendas we want to set about our personal presentation and people read them for our class, often our gender, etc….. 

I want donuts from that former Dunkin Donuts run by that old guy with the thick accent who makes his coffee too strong.
