The XX’s Oliver Sim Loves Lanvin
Music and fashion overlap and influence each other all the time, so it’s only natural for artists to be spotted front row supporting their favorite designers. I was excited to see The XX singer, Oliver Sim at Paris Men’s Fashion Week attending Lanvin‘s Fall 2011 collection debut. Sim, who is taking time off after touring the world, is currently working on new material for The XX, which I’m super stoked about. Given their album is a regular on the office playlist, I can’t wait to see, or rather hear what’s next from the band. Sim talked to WWD about the added pressure of a second album, “I’m trying my best to block it out and just enjoy what I’m doing and not think about the outside world, but there is a pressure, yeah.” Well, at least Sim had a little break from making music to enjoy Alber Elbaz‘s design’s for Lanvin….I have a feeling the popularity of black appeals to Sim’s fashion taste.
Hmm...maybe we’ll see a little Lanvin used in one of the band’s future videos? Peep the video for their song “Islands” below and tell us if you think Lanvin would be a good fit for The XX.
