Let us celebrate the release of Roisin Murphy’s new album by admiring some of her most appealingly edgy looks from over the years. The powerhouse of glacial disco appeared on Sunday Brunch this weekend to promote her album in a joyously kitsch dress and a vicious necklace, with which I quickly became mesmerised. Unfortunately, you cannot see the necklace in the photo of this appearance but I was struck enough for this to be the start of a quest to find its provenance. It also lead me to look back over Roisin’s sartorial archive and, boy, did it not disappoint. The problem was narrowing it down to only the 26 pictures I’ve included here.
