For those of us around in the early nineties, singer-songwriter/rapper Neneh Cherry effortlessly epitomised and oozed cool. She had curly afro hair, wore giant gold medallions like Run-DMC, and offered a new way forward for female rappers. Her most famous songs, ‘Buffalo Stance’, ‘Man Child’ and ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’, catapulted Cherry into the global spotlight, while controversially at the time performing ‘Buffalo Stance’ wearing bicycle shorts over a heavily pregnant belly in 1988. Neneh defined the youth and music of the generation and chose to show an even edgier side to women in pop. Fast forward 30 years and Neneh proves her fashion mantle once more by teaming up with Matches Fashion to curate an exclusive collection as part of their ‘Curated By’ series.
Unsurprisingly, the collection is achingly urban, with trademark nineties pieces and trousers that would tempt MC Hammer out of hiding. The 60-piece collection is also modelled by the now 55-year-old, looking as incredible as ever, proving that age is just a number and her message and style as relevant as ever. All hail Neneh.
