Cordings has had a long association with musicians and is indeed part owned by the legendary Eric Clapton, we were pleased to be approached by multi award winning British soul singer Bashiyra as she put together looks to promote her new album Independent.
It is always interesting to see how stylists and artists approach an established brand such as Cordings, and interpret our classic British style, making it their own. Bashiyra put together four looks; emphasis was on the tailored elements in the range, teamed with rich, bright accessories.
Bashiyra “I was looking for a sharp, classic look, quite grown up, but still very feminine. I wanted to create a uniquely British take on a strong woman, my music is both powerful yet soulful, and it was important to me that the looks portrayed that. The title of my new album ‘Independent’ was very much in the fore when I was creating the outfits. British singers, like myself, have a unique place on the international soul music stage. I have had significant success in the States and it is good to be able to push my British identity by collaborating with a brand like Cordings”
