Sky Ferreira for Maison Kitsuné.

When it comes to making miserable look good, Sky Ferreira is a pro. In a series of new ads shot by Henrik Purienne for Maison Kitsuné, Ferreira serves up some “OMG I HATE YOU, CLOSE THE CURTAINS,” realness in some less-realistic lounge-wear. I mean, I’m sure there ~are~ people out there who lay around pouting and posing and reading The New York Times in a sheening, cobalt pullover, stark-white business socks and a floral, silk headscarf—but, yeah, I don’t know any of those people. (Sorry for shattering your dreams, fellas. Most girls definitely don’t wake up looking quite so easy-like-Sunday-morning.)
The latest “New Wave”-themed line from French fashion x music label, Kitsuné, is said to have been inspired by New York’s burgeoning young artists. So, IMHO, seeing Sky star in the first ads for their Spring/Summer 2014 collection following the release of her first full-length album, Night Time, My Time, is kind of a duh moment. As in, WE ARE INTO IT.
At 21, Ferreira’s effortlessly cool debut (on the heels of an excellent EP), as well as her renown for being Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent muse, cements her haute-grunge status amongst the fashion x music set. The fact that Ferreira will also make her big screen debut in Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno later this year, only makes her all the more impressive. (Especially when you consider that girl can bust out a perfectly symmetrical, wing on that eyeliner.)
