For this weeks Music and Style installment I went about it in a different way from usual. Rather than choosing somebody that I already knew to be a stylish musician, I took somebody who I’ve been listening to a lot recently, Emily Haines of Metric, who I actually had no idea what they dressed like and found out.
Metric aren’t well known at all in the UK, they had a bit of a hit with Monster Hospital back in 2005, but haven’t really made much of an impact since. I really like Metric, but the only reason I am even listening to them now is that Dave and I recently merged our itunes and Metric were one of ‘my’ bands he discovered. This prompted me to download the new album a couple of weeks back and I’ve been listening to it since. But I actually had no idea what Emily Haines looked like other than that she was pretty and blonde. Turns out she has quite a classic style, sort of what you might describe as French chic, but with an indie twist. Muted colours, and simple, sleek lines. Nothing to distract from her natural beauty. But what’s going on with that gold lame romper suit is anyone’s guess!
