As Frida Giannini’s muse for Gucci FW11 and Karl Lagerfeld’s entertainment of choice for Chanel SS12, it’s safe to say that Florence Welch is this year’s most fashionable chanteuse. Following in the footsteps of fellow sartorial songstresses like Lady Gaga, Beth Ditto, and Rye Rye, designers are lining up to both dress and photograph the 25-year-old crimson-coifed beauty – not least the aforementioned Lagerfeld.
Taking a note from designer Riccardo Tisci’s album art collaboration with Kanye West and Jay-Z, Lagerfeld photographed Welch for the cover of her band’s limited-edition vinyl single, Shake it Out. This is the first cover from the designer and musician’s upcoming series with The Vinyl Factory.
Shake it Out is set to release on October 31 and is available for pre-order here.
