Icona Pop: Style Secrets
Icona Pop are the Swedish electropop duo of the moment and luckily for us were the headline act for the exciting Primark store launch in fabulous Philly last week. These two rocked out on stage to their biggest hits of the year, wearing head-to-toe Primark including some of the must-have pieces for the Christmas party season. We caught up with them backstage to chat all-things style, inspiration and cheeky late night dinners!
Tell us about the Primark pieces you're wearing tonight?
We are both wearing [Fake fur – can you confirm product?]. Caroline is wearing the black one and I’m wearing the white one. We love them! You can really pimp up your style and stage outfit with a cool jacket. And also it’s fake fur, which we prefer.
How would you mix up these pieces to wear again in a new way?
You can change the look easily with other trousers. Go with more of the 70´s look that’s hot right now with booth cut jeans or a more rock chick vibe with a pair of super tight black jeans.
How would you describe your personal style?
We both love mixing masculine with feminine and also contemporary with punk. Those kinds of unexpected mixes are the best.
Who, and what, inspires your approach to dressing?
We are very inspired by street style. We love going to fashion weeks and having a coffee somewhere to sit and people watch. We admire those who wear their clothes like pieces of art - our style icons are Prince and David Bowie (a.k.a. Ziggy Stardust)!
How does your work as a performer inform your fashion choices?
We move around a lot on stage so we need to be quite comfortably dressed. Our looks are the perfect combo of layers so you can take them off during the show. The focus is always both feminine and masculine and above all, fun.
Tell us 5 fun facts that no one knows about you?
