Two pictures of Roisin in Milan last night.
The website of Italian Vogue also has a short feature on Roisin's performance at the Replay party:
The Replay party in Milan was, to say the least, extraordinary. Thousands of people were present in a hangar with obelisks, a topiary maze and a giant hall decked out for the musicians' performances. Hercules And Love Affair opened. While the band was on stage I spoke at length with Roisin Murphy, the fabulous singer dear to the staff and readers of Vogue.it
On a little white sofa, safe from the crowd, Roisin told me that she has just spent six months in her native Ireland. Less than five months ago, in fact, she had a daughter with her partner Simon Henwood. Simon, as well as being an artist, is creative director for Rihanna.
Before she could start talking about children however I began moaning about my agoraphobia. It was as if Elizabeth Taylor had gone to interview Susan Sontag.
Talking about recently departed Malcolm McLaren I asked her which of his projects she has enjoyed the most. Her answer was Bow Wow Wow. As if that wasn't enough she confessed to being a big Thin Lizzy fan. These revelations endeared Roisin to me, not to mention the maroon handbag she had just bought from Celine.
Roisin is a happy, accomplished woman. I didn't have time to hold it against her however: the stage manager called her onstage and I, like an old Broadway queen, bid her farewell saying "break a leg".
This week Roisin will be in Milan for a DJ set at the Replay party:
The party of Italian brand Replay will host one of the most awaited collateral events being during the latest edition of Milan Salone del Mobile: the concert of Hercules & Love Affair, band – featuring Andrew Butler, Nomi, Kim Ann Foxmann and collaborating with Antony Hegarty – and dj-set of the iconic singer Roisin Murphy which will be held on 15th April 2010 in Milan at the Hangar.
