Alison Mosshart: Killin’ It For Eddie Borgo
Eddie Borgo first met the Kills front woman, Alison Mosshart, through another one of his friends and muses—Kate Lanphear. “She came to a dinner I hosted in Paris, as a guest of Kate’s,” he says. When he saw Mosshart on stage, he was sold on the thoroughly modern-day punk woman. “I was completely taken when I first saw her perform. She is a poet, a writer, a performer, an artist, an intellectual, and a musician,” he tells Style.com. “She is a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll star.” And now, she is a bona fide Borgo girl, too.
Mosshart, whose book Dream & Drive with her band mate Jamie Hince just came out last week, is the newest in a lineup of fashion rock stars who have fronted the designer’s ad campaigns. “I’d loved all his previous collections, their inspirations, and what they stood for. It was wonderful shooting the campaign, learning how meaningful all the pieces were to him, watching his creative mind spin, hearing about his ideas and processes,” she tells Style.com. “I think of his jewelry as sculptures designed with one final angle in mind, us, the moves we make, the turns we take, the rambling bliss of the body in human traffic.” Style.com debuts the Fall 2012 campaign, lensed by Paul Maffi, exclusively here on Style.com.
