After her surprise Sao Paulo Fashion Week appearance walking for Ellus last January, Agyness Deyn spared a day to shoot for Plastic Dreams, the new magazine from crazy-cool plastic shoe label Melissa
, who you'll remember from their collaborations with Vivienne Westwood and Zaha Hadid. We caught up with Aggy on set...Are you officially the new face of London fashion?
I'm always around London designers like Christopher Kane, Gareth Pugh, Jonathan Saunders and Henry Holland, who I'm really close with, so I guess I am. They're all good friends and I'm happy if we get to work together.How often do you see the BF (Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes)?
Not much! We travel a lot. It's hard to be apart, but at least we never get fed up with each other. We're stuck together like glue when we do see each other. [Editor: um, this was before the recent breakup.]Do you plan to take on the music business?
I've been playing music since I was sixteen. I had my own band, Lucky Knitwear, but it was just for fun. I don’t want to be a rock star.What have you been listening to?
This band from my hometown, Manchester, called Maupa, and The Postal Service. I couldn't tell you why I like it, but I definitely recommend it.Tried any Brazilian food yet?
I've had a lot of seafood, but I'm dying to try feijoada. I just have one day off and that's the only thing I want to do before I leave!
