Gloucester-born London transplant FKA Twigs is an anomaly on many levels.  Her image is bold, but her profile low-key.  She currently resides in one of the world’s busiest cities, yet hails from the farmlands of Southwest England.  Her videos are ripe with voyeuristic tension, while her music remains sultry and delicate.  With all of this contradiction it is no wonder that Ms. Twigs presents herself in such eclectic garb.  Born to a Jamaican father, and partly Spanish mother, her lineage is a melting pot all its own.  Twigs adorns herself with halos of colorful flowers, embroidered jackets, and gold hoop-earrings fit for Salt n Peppa.  She is never without her lipstick or her long black braids, both of which liken her appearance to a budding and sexualized Frida Kahlo.  Here are some items that remind us of the songwriter, who I find more to be a wildflower than a twig.
