Last year, it was Lykke Li. This year, it's Kazu Makino. The Blonde Redhead singer, long admired for her eclectic fashion looks, is the newest musician-muse for Bodkin designer Eviana Hartman. For the multifaceted designer, an admitted fetishist of 90s minimalism, Makino was the perfect fit.
â€œ[Makino] worked at the Comme des Garcons boutique in the 90s â€” it sounds like a fashion fantasy to me,â€ she said.
Based in New York, Bodkin is known for crafting collections from bigger brands' leftover materials. The upcoming collection emphasizes simple and unpretentious pieces made from organic cotton, a nice fit for Makino's easy style.
