FKA twigs released the debut issue of her AVANTgarden digizine just last month and the artist is already back with a follow-up. The second issue, titled Dream Warrior, is another compilation of stunning imagery which FKA twigs has put together with a collective of creative collaborators and it also features an original poem penned by the artist herself.
To correspond with the Instagram zine, FKA twigs is also launching a Dream Warrior line of apparel and accessories. The collection does feature key items of merch usually produced by musicians, like pins and tees, but FKA twigs is never one to conform or produce the expected – she’s also created a line of sleepwear. There will be an eye mask and two printed pajama sets available, one inspired by “protection signs” and the other by “ancient spells”. On her decision to foray into sleepwear, the artist said:
“I’ve always worn my mother’s silk PJs on stage from my very first tour, but they wore out so I wanted to make some of my own. I’m also obsessed with sets and bold prints and, through my exploration of mysticism, I created symbols that protect and invite otherworldly creatures to assist those who wear the sets in their everyday lives. More than anything I wanted people who wear the PJs out into the world to know they know that they look the bomb, even in sleepwear, cause that’s just how they roll.”
