Azealia Banks by Terry Richardson
Everyone LOVES Azealia Banks, the young American rap sensation raised in Harlem, NY and discovered through MySpace before being signed to XL Recordings at the tender age of 17. She later signed to Interscope and Polydor Records. Her true rise to fame happened in 2011 when she topped NME's Cool List, got third place on BBC's Sound of 2012. Her debut single "212" featuring Lazy Jay came out on Dec 6th 2011 and is part of her critically acclaimed EP "1991". Her sound reminds me of a young Missy Elliott... Add to this a stunning beauty and a quirky sense of style and you have the new darling of the fashion world. Azealia is a long time admirer of R&B powerhouses Aaliyah (R.I.P.) and Beyonce - two brilliant musical role models and style icons in their own right. Clearly, Azealia Banks has it all figured out, musically and also style wise.
The young singer recently posted on her Instagram account a photograph of our Eyes on the Horizon backpack, from our collaboration collection with Craig & Karl, stating it had been given to her by a (mysterious) Sugar Daddy. Of course, it prompted many comments from fans admiring her new bag - and inquiring as to where one finds a sugar daddy with such great taste. So I would like to join in with your fans, Azealia and ask: "where are all the sugar daddies with great taste? I want my MCM!".
... And finally because it is all about the music, and because we love you very much here is some music for you!
