From The Desk Of Juana Molina: Iris Van Herpen

It’s a good thing that Argentine artist Juana Molina cut her showbiz teeth acting in humorous ’80s/’90s TV shows, because the singer—who’s just released her seventh album, Halo—is practically living a real-life sitcom. Her daughter Francisca, now 23, has moved out and wants nothing to do with the family business, which dates back to Molina’s high-profile folks, tango singer Horacio Molina and thespian Chunchuna Villafañe. But the comedic axis on which Molina’s life revolves is Rosa, her ex-husband’s nanny, who stayed on after their divorce more than a decade ago. Molina even penned a tune for her housemate called “The Gift,” but it didn’t make the final Halo cut. Molina will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week. Read our new feature on her.

Molina: She is not just a clothing designer. She is a sculptor, a painter, a creator. Her imagination, choice of colours, shapes and materials, her research on 3D printing make her one of the most innovative fashion inventors.
