FKA Twigs debuted her Instagram-only AVANTgarden magazine with an issue all about black hair last month. Now she’s back with the second installment, which centers around dreams, spirituality, and mysticism.
“I’ve always worn my mother’s silk PJs on stage from my very first tour, but they wore out so I wanted to make some of my own,” the singer said in a statement. “I’m also obsessed with sets and bold prints and, through my exploration of mysticism, I created symbols that protect and invite otherworldly creatures to assist those who wear the sets in their everyday lives.”
Twigs also launched a “Dream Warrior” collection, inspired by the issue, featuring t-shirts, sleepwear, and pins.
