i was super excited to get the opportunity to interview JADE from SUNDAYGIRL! i loved her style in her video "four floors" and wanted to know more about her. she agreed to answer some questions...


Is it annoying to keep being be asked if the name SundayGirl was inspired
by the Blondie hit? I know it's not the inspiration, but it must be asked a lot.

The name Sunday Girl came from working in a local old fashioned pet shop
in my hometown, Broxbourne for a few years. I worked every Sunday but no
one really knew my name so I would just get referred to as the “Sunday girl.”

I know you're 21 and from the UK...How does your age and living in the UK
influence your music and style?

Two years ago I moved to Brixton to do an art degree in Wimbledon I think
that brought out a more independent creativity. I really experimented with
my writing and production musically as well as producing pieces for my set
design degree, which I found were closely linked.

In my teens I went a bit mad going through loads of style changes, as
everyone does I suppose but I think its great to experiment with fashion and
make and destroy clothes and really find what you like. I think my style now
is quite classic, tailored and masculine. I love dressing like a boy it’s a
contrast to my big girly hair.

Music influences my style too, I mean one minute I was in a ska band the next
a ukulele band doing old jazz covers.

Style Icons?
My main style icon is Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. I love how she turned clothes
designed for men into something that women could wear too. I also take
influences from Jane Birkin, Daphne Guinness, Debbie Harry , Karl Lagerfeld
and Edie Sedgwick.

Favorite designers and/or places to shop?
H&M and Zara for the basics and my loft, my nans wardrobe a bit of car boot
sales and vintage shops for making it personal.

I noticed you wearing stripes in the video...are you as obsessed with stripes as I am?
Yes I am a bit obsessed with stripes but anything Parisian and sea related really.

Words to live by?
“get good at asking” + “if you don’t act on life it has a habit of acting on you”

Favorite City?
My favourite place has to be Hastings. My dad has a caravan there, which
I go to most weekends to write, draw and shop.

Beauty product you couldn't live without?
I'm bad with makeup I never buy my own, I steal everyone else’s but I think
I could live without my Clarins Bi-serum after a night out.

Do you read any fashion blogs? If so, which ones? and I admire Tavi Gevinsons blog, StyleRookie.

What's in your bag?
My Dad’s raybans , lyric book, a fork, tooth brush, ideas book, diary, camera,
devon floral sweets. My vintage Cartier wallet and some cds.
