If there’s ever a music video that influences the way I dress, perhaps even helps shaping up my signature style, that would be Moloko’s Forever More. The single Forever More was released during my final year of university, it was also the year where I moved back to Jakarta after I finished my undergraduate study in Melbourne. It was the period where the remnants of my style as a student back in Melbourne melting with the evolving Jakarta street style. All I can say, it was a good year
Though Moloko was more famously known for their Sing it Back single, but the one that truly stuck in my head was this one. It was perfect; song, outfit and choreography-wise. I love what Róisín Murphy wore in the music video: a loose fitted short sleeved black shirt with a cream wide leg pants with a ruch on the waistline. Click the music video and tell me that is not something that you would see me wearing even nowadays?
As I replay this video today, I can’t believe how strongly this music video has influenced my personal style.
