Meet Tigerlily Taylor, the latest star of our Meet the Muse segment. Daughter of prominent rocker Roger Taylor from British band Queen, Tigerlily is a model and student currently based in Brighton, UK. Taylor wears labels from the likes of COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT Boy, The Hundreds, HUF, A$AP x Guess and more.
We asked Tigerlily a handful of questions in order to get to know her a little more. See what she had to say below and check out our previous installment with Madrid’s Sandra Rubio.
Who or what are you currently inspired by?
Recently I’ve been obsessing over graffiti, especially London artists like Mean PFB, Zomby DDS/FPS and Retro CBM/NHS of course. And also the pioneer American graffiti writer, T-KID.
How has your style changed over the years?
I used to be so grungy in my early teen years, I still love a bit of grunge but I’ve definitely sharpened up a bit. I basically just switched my holey jumpers and ripped jeans for trackies and big tees… still keeping it comfy.
If you weren’t in your current city, where would you live?
Rio, Berlin or Amsterdam.
What’s your motto?
Get shit done.
How do you relax?
Watch a good film and do a nice sketch or a painting.
What in life are you most grateful for?
My family. We are incredibly close. I have four siblings and we’re kind of like a really small gang.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
Being able to breathe underwater. I’m a real water baby and grew up around boats so I love the sea.
What is the quality you value most in friendship?
Loyalty. If you’re not loyal, you’re not a true friend. Everyone needs backup.
What is something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time, but haven’t yet?
Compiling a book of illustrated short stories and poetry. And going to Cuba, Japan and New Orleans.
What album do you currently have on repeat?
I’ve been listening to a collection of artists on repeat over the last couple months: Pete Rock, Lil Ugly Mane, Quasimoto, Freddie Gibbs and Nas. Not specific albums, just in general.
What is your most treasured item of clothing?
All my trainers and my vintage kimonos and Japanese tour jackets. I can’t pick one item. I’m obsessed with silk embroidered, vintage Japanese pieces.
What is your most treasured possession?
My dog, but she’s not a possession. I treasure her most because she is the sweetest, most innocent individual in a world full of selfish humans, and she always has my back.
What skill do you possess that people wouldn’t expect from you?
I’m not sure if people would expect it from or not me but I’m an expert speller. I would kill in a spelling bee.
What could you eat every day and not get tired of?
Steamed prawn dim sum and chicken pho.
Where do you want to be in the next five years?
Living on a beach with my dog and my boyfriend, freelance writing for a living
