Goldyn Girl Profile: Morgan Kibby of M83 and White Sea Talks Style and Music

We’ve been fans of indie pop songstress Morgan Kibby for quite some time – whether it was her otherworldly, mood-bending vocals and keyboards as a part of the group M83, or now in her own solo project, White Sea.  Girl has talent in spades, no question.  Just take a listen to hits like Kim and Jessie and We Own the Sky from M83, or Future Husbands Past Lives from White Sea, and it’s easy to see why her career has been on the rise.  Not only is Morgan musically-inclined though, but she’s got style to boot.  We caught up with the producer/writer/composer/singer about her sartorial leanings, her latest single, and her favorite new arrivals at Goldyn of course.

Morgan describes her own style as rock and roll with a minimalist bent: “My style has always comprised varying degrees of melodrama, rocker chic (thank you airports) and tailoring.  I love simple pieces paired with loud details or romantic accessories.  I splurge on custom hats, fancy shoes and bags and rotate lots of black, white and pastel basics.  Simple is always timeless, and I never leave home without red or plum lipstick!”

Showing that all it takes are a few statement pieces layered with some simple-yet-edgy staples, when picking out her favorites from Goldyn’s Fall collections Morgan gravitated towards Ryan Roche’s Furry Cashmere Sweater and Carmen Diaz’s Gold Cuff, paired with Helmut Lang’s Leather Leggings (a rocker must-have), Michi’s chic Empress Bra Top, along with classic black ankle boots from Rachel Comey and our fav bag of the season from Building Block.  Most definitely a stage-worthy look, if we do say so.

What can we expect now from this music and style maven?  Morgan’s most recent projects include working with electronic group Big Data, taking her vocals to new heights on singles like The Business of Emotion.  Along with collaborations like this gem, Morgan is also scoring a new film by French filmmaker Eva Husson, entitled “Bang Gang!”  We can’t wait to see what this woman-about-town and one of our favorite Goldyn Girls does next.
