n°181/ Kim Gordon

July 2015

by Nathalie Azoulai

A mix of Patti Smith and Nico, of Loulou de La Falaise and Courtney Love, she was THE 1990 rock icon. Considered a pivotal influence on the alternative rock movements, her band Sonic Youth still remains iconic for many young musicians and songwriters.Surrounded by three boys of  from 1981 to 2012, including her husband Thurston Moore, Gordon embodied both the tough little sister and the over protected princess every girl longs to be. As said in her lately released memoir's title, Girl in a Band, it hasn't been that easy though. Still an icon to other icons such as Sofia Coppola or Charlotte Gainsbourg. Will the fashion world, besides Hedi Slimane, ever be back to her so inspirational lifestyle?
