Can’t Stop Feeling with Snoh Aalegra

November 8, 2019 20:26

Have you ever been in that mood in which you just want to listen to music that makes you feel something? Then Snoh Aalegra is the perfect artist for you. You can practically taste the emotion in her songs. With an old school R&B feel and the voice of a 60s saloon singer, Snoh gets her listeners instantly hooked on her music. Her song “Fool For You” had me nostalgic, thinking back to a time when I was a blind fool in love running back to the same toxic person. Snoh’s music speaks to anyone that occasionally gets in their feelings about things.

Her passion for music and signing developed at the young age of seven. Sheri Nowrozi was born and raised in Uppsala, Sweden. The Swedish-Iranian singer developed a love for R&B legends like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder. They inspired her in a way that made her want to sing and feel like them. At age nine she decided she wanted to be a singer. Snoh got signed to Sony in Sweden at 13 but didn’t gain from it what she had hoped. About a little over a decade later after having produced two hit songs and going by the name Sheri, she was discovered by the producer No I.D. and made guest appearances on albums from various artists like Common and Vince Staples. Snoh also had the opportunity to have a relationship with Prince. She told Highsnobiety, “He was really important and special. It’s so sad that he’s not here anymore. From almost a selfish point of view, I felt more pressure when he was around because I knew he was always watching me”. Her second album “FEELS” that dropped in 2017 is how most people have heard from her. It features artists like Vince Staples, Vic Mensa and Logic.

Her recent album “Ugh, those feels again” includes multiple songs that caught not only mine but also the public’s attention. My personal favorites include “Toronto”, “Find Someone Like You” and the most popular song on the album “I Want You Around”. Her songs are ideal for those Winter feels and Summer daydreaming. Whether you’re reminiscing about sunshine and summer flings or sitting on your balcony taking in your sunny warm surroundings, Snoh Aalegra creates sort of romantic vibe in her music. So sit down, relax and let those feelings emerge.

The employees in the boutiques, in the design studio and in the backstage area at fashion shows wear white lab coats, as was common in the ateliers of the great couturiers, e.g. Christian Dior, and is still common today. The fashion shows for the high-priced fashion sometimes took place in the context of the Paris Prêt-à-porter shows in unconventional locations, up to shabby surroundings (construction site, metro station, dining room of the Salvation Army etc.). The boutiques are kept in plain white and gray. Margiela originally selected unspectacular locations such as a residential area in Tokyo and did not publish the addresses of the boutiques in order to require the customer to make an effort to find the store at all. The first Margiela store opened in Tokyo in 2000 and the first European boutique was inaugurated in Brussels in 2002. In 2008, a boutique opened in a basement on the edge of Munich's Maximilianstrasse. This was followed by participation in numerous exhibitions, including "Radical Fashion", which was shown in 2001 at the V&A Museum in London. In 2010 there were 36 own stores worldwide.  In 2015 there were over 50 stores worldwide, including boutiques, that only carry the MM6 collection.

The company followed a very restrictive communication policy. The designer can neither be photographed nor interviewed. Only his creations should speak for themselves and the designs should be perceived as the overall performance of the team. That's why the team always shows up in white doctor's coats after the fashion shows - nobody should stand out.

By recycling old fashion, separating, recoloring, reversing seams and zippers, both the origin and the artificial of the art of tailoring are shown. Margiela puts together what doesn't belong together: by hand, jeans turn into skirts, old army socks become pullovers. Baptized by the press as deconstructivism, this current is defined by an abrupt collision of different materials, which at first glance appear inharmonic in the sense of conventional viewing habits. Margiela herself rejects the term "deconstructivism". He resurrected clothes in a new form, he told ELLE in 1991.

Margiela was the unofficial 7th member of "Antwerp 6", a generation of fashion designers who all completed their training at the Royal Academy of Arts between 1980-1981 and shaped the "style of the Belgians". However, it does not belong to the actual group, but it became known in a similar period.

The Japanese "Street Magazine" dedicated two special editions to "Maison Martin Margiela", which were published in book form in 1999. Nicolas Ghesquière (Balenciaga) is a big fan of Maison Martin Margiela.

In July 2014, fashion critic Suzy Menkes exposed Matthieu Blazy via Instagram as Head of Design, after which he deleted his Instagram account and changed his profile in a career network. He left the company on October 1, 2014.

To this day, Margiela pieces, especially in the fashion industry and all fashion lovers, belong to the sanctuaries in every repertoire and archive. Getting vintage pieces from other designers may be possible, but Maison Martin Marginal Archives are a real hunt and that says it all about this art.
