One of my biggest all-time style inspirations is Natasha Khan, or better know as her musical counter-part Bat for Lashes.We both love whimsical things: fur, gold, melody, the moon, feathers, things that sparkle, chords that resolve. Since she began recording and performing as Bat For Lashes a few years back, Khan has loosely assembled those things around her person like so many thrift store trinkets. Her aesthetic is such a perfectly struck balancing act between earth mother hippie mystic and post-modern Gen Y art student, it strikes you as a fashion feat.
What makes her style so wonderful, however, isn’t the wide spectrum of looks she incorporates, but rather the effortless way she seems to streamline all of the influences that inspire her into a style that is distinctive and original. So pile on those feathers, glitter, and sequins!
