Drake General Store Style Icon: Kim Gordon
Since the birth of the rock band Sonic Youth in New York’s art scene during the 1980s, front woman Kim Gordon has effortlessly become a female grunge style icon. Kim’s style challenges both the traditional ideas of what someone who plays in a rock band should dress like, and breaks down the wall that exists between masculine and feminine fashion. From flowing bohemian dresses to contrast her hard music, to masculine tailoring to contrast her peroxide blonde hair, Kim’s style is unapologetic and entirely her own. With fifteen albums under her belt, a handful of music videos directed, dozens of paintings exhibited + having raised a daughter (adorably named Coco), there’s a lot more to admire about her than just the frock on her back.
Kim has even designed a handful of her own clothing lines, X-Girl in the 1990s, Surface to Air in 2008 and Mirror/Dash, a collaboration with Urban Outfitters “there’s a need for clothes for cool moms.”. A classic icon of female empowerment, she still has relevance today - she’ll be in the upcoming season 3 premiere of HBO’s Girls. Kim’s one of our idols we won’t be killing.
