The Yellow Satin Monte Carlo Prime and the Bead Yod Skirt Yellow Satin are each made out of deadstock satin – supplies that may’ve in any other case gone to waste – and match the label’s ethos to turn into “a completely sustainable and radically clear model within the close to future”.
It’s a shiny, summery look – an enormous departure from the extra Gothic styling of Lorde’s first album, Pure Heroine, however then she’s used to creating a press release in her music movies…

Then got here Tennis Court docket, the 2013 single the place Lorde showcased a contemporary sporty Goth look.

Good Locations cemented Lorde’s standing as a excessive style darling. Shot in Jamaica, the then-20-year-old modified from outfit to fabulous outfit at a head-spinning charge.
