Tag Archives: Effie Liu
At an event/talk with designer Jenny Lai recently at The Underline Gallery, Chantal and Effie were both wearing versions of the Hole Tent Dress. I love how Effie’s hair matches Chantal’s dress… it’s those little visual quirks that make me happy…and LOVE the dresses too!
We admit it. We’ve been fans of Effie Liu for awhile now. Yes, she has the best pink hair anyone could ask for, but she also has infectious energy and crazy talent. So obvi this made her at the top of our list for our Instagram project. In her own words, this is what she’s been up to recently:
Basically, I do the sweet lady vox and hype girling in a very funky electro / new jack swing band called French Horn Rebellion. Bebe Panthere is my funky-punky solo project that is currently in the works, but you should be on the look out for it by the end of the year! :)
Be sure to follow her on instagram @bebepanthere
There’s the little black dress and then there’s your perfect little black dress. For Effie it’s a custom NOT by jenny lai pillow case dress that’s simply flattering in the front with a surprise opening in the back. She’s wearing it with a Givenchy birds of paradise scarf (on her head), Yves Saint Laurent platform pumps, and a Givenchy bag.
And this is the cross body Givenchy bag that I almost got last year to use as a camera bag during fashion week but decided for that it wasn’t big enough. Looking at it now though, I kind of wish I did! Since by now you know this girl loves fashion...here are a few of her other favorite things!
Food: Afternoon tea because it’s cute and delicious!
Drink: Can’t go wrong with water.
Book: Vogue, baby!
Recent song or album: No Doubt “Settle Down”.
Artist: Keith Haring.
NYC spots: coffee at Ground Support in Soho and walking around town, and sitting along the waterfront in Long Island City while the sun goes down.
LA spots: Brunch at Gjelina, followed by coffee at Intelligentsia — It’s kind of a tradition my best friend and I have when I’m in LA working with PNKYSWR.
NYC spot for creative inspiration: Something about riding the metro makes me write songs!
Vacation/getaway spot: I’m currently in love with London. I tend to get away from the city only to go to another city.
Indulgence: getting custom NOT by Jenny Lai pieces made on a whim.
Fashion designer: Rick Owens and Alber Elbaz.
Article of clothing: Rick Owens silk hooded jacket from SS ’10. I literally had to hunt it down.
Go-to cosmetic: YSL Rouge Voluptè No. 11. It matches my hair and lasts all day!
Fave thing about being in PNKYSWR: Seeing people sing and dance to our songs when we play shows!
Historical time period that you never experienced (and why): The future (not really historical, I know), because I’m all about looking ahead, and that means never hanging onto the past or dwelling on anything for too long. Time only ticks forward, and so should you!
I love this look that she’s wearing here. So much more interesting than a little black dress!
The statement pieces are the boots by Rick Owens and the sequined harness jacket by Comme des Garcons. She’s wearing them with an Out From Under cropped bustier and the angle skirt by Titania Inglis. And she’s kept the jewelry simple: just a PNKYSWR necklace!
Here is a better look at her PNKYSWR necklace: Effie’s own custom design made in collaboration with Tinkering Monkey.
