I was just in Brigitte’s (she runs the ‘Red Carpet’ dept) office the other day & I saw this photo stuck on the wall behind her. She told me it was of Irish singer/songwriter Roisin Murphy & it was taken by photographer Elaine Constantine. The photo caught my attention because she is wearing a Squiggle shirt.
I looked on Roisin’s website & found this explanation from her:
“Scott King is the art director for ‘Overpowered’. I have worked with him once before. He was creative director of Sleaze Nation when Elaine Constantine (Photographer) asked me to model in a fashion story she was shooting for them. We shot his idea, like a little movie, it was a narrative about a “small town pub band”. I ended up on the cover of the magazine, pictured being shagged by a hairy rocker in the cabin of a parked transit van. My Mother was very proud”. http://roisinmurphy.blogspot.co.uk/p/bio.html
You look great Roisin. Thank you!
& thank you to Elaine too. Great photo!
For the first post of 2017 (Happy New Year) I was lucky to catch the visit of Japanese TV & Radio presenter Chris Matsumura to the Worlds End shop.
Here he is kindly modelling the Bondage Shirt that he bought today.
It is the first time that he has been in the shop & he said that the shops interior reminded him of Alice in Wonderland.
Although he of course is based in Japan (he’s flying back there later tonight), Chris’s father was a diplomat & Chris lived abroad a lot when he was young, being born in The Hague & spending 3-4 years at a Primary School in Wimbledon here in London.
Having done many varied things in his media career, Chris has now become a respected music critic & reviewer, work that he really enjoys. He has just covered the latest Rolling Stones album & in 2 weeks he will be interviewing Bryan Adams. He also writes about all the top Japanese musicians such as Tatsuro Yamashita.
Thank you Chris & lots of luck for the coming year.

I & everybody at Worlds End shop wish you all a Great holiday & peace, love & common sense for the New Year.
Just recently I was sent a link to an old TV interview with Madonna from 1984 where she mentions that she loves the clothes in Worlds End. She also wore a Keith Haring tube skirt from the Witches AW83/84 collection in the video for her first album Borderline. Continue reading →
