Nothing was half-assed for Twigs when she performed at The Wallace Collection, a free museum in London with a collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture and arms and armour. Twigs sang “Cellophane,” the first single off of her latest project, and thrillingly, this live and acoustic (mostly piano and cello) version is equal to — if not even better than — the studio version. 

Twigs described the session as an emotional experience, and as all art-direction elements matter to the artist, of course, the fashion was on point, matched perfectly with her beautiful surroundings, turning the singer into a real-life work of art. Twigs took to Twitter to describe the performance as her “love letter to the artefacts [sic] and paintings held within its walls, and to one of my favourite designers [Vivienne Westwood] whose portrait collection was inspired by these pieces.”

Watch the magic:

FKA Twigs is playing at AFROPUNK Brooklyn and at AFROPUNK’s Carnival of Consciousness in Atlanta.
