[M]adison Rose is the pop maximalist making sound (and style) waves this summer. The LA-based newcomer wanted to create “a kaleidoscopic ball pit of enlightenment,” with her debut single and music video ‘DIAMONDS’ (currently surpassing the 45k mark on Spotify), a catchy self-love anthem that featured a mega-mix of rainbow wigs, confetti cannons, colour-pop 90s garms.
“Growing up I was fortunate to be exposed to so many different facets of culture and I think it’s apparent in my style,” Rose tells Hunger. “You can bet that any outfit I wear will have some mix of colors, patterns, textures and time periods.” Heavily inspired by 90s hip hop icons, Madison recently collaborated with “The Godfather of streetwear” Karl Kani (loved by the likes of Biggie and Tupac), showcasing pieces from his vintage archives that fit perfectly into her technicolor frame of mind.
“Karl has the most fabulous use of color,” she explains. “And his clothing has such an effortless cool to it. He’s so supportive of young artists – I think he was excited to see what my point of view on his fashion would be. He offered me free reign in the Kani vintage archives and to style it how I felt and it’s just such blessing I got to take things and bring it into my rainbow realm.” Check out the exclusive shoot and interview with Madison below.
