FEMME, who celebrated her birthday yesterday was clad in a plaid dress at the event with her favorite furry dog Bullett. This is the first store launched outside of Italy and Eastern Europe and is located in Brewer Street.
The brand was launched in 1919 in the US and became widely popular in the 90’s as American college athletes, skaters and hip-hop fans adopted its sweatshirts as their uniform. It later lost its appeal when more sportswear brands began to emerge, but recent efforts to associate the brand with other cult labels has managed to put it back in the limelight.

Pop Star: FEMME burtst onto the scene releasing her debut album ‘Debutante’ last year
“Like most of my best ideas they usually come to me in the middle of night deep in a cheese dream. With a habit of cooking up big ideas on DIY budgets, I knew we had to find a clever way of getting the heat into the video.
With that in mind we arrived at this dystopian chilli eating competition. Director Ben took this initial idea and ran with it and together I think we’ve realised one of my best videos to date,” she said.
‘Fire With Fire’ sees FEMME return to her more indie-electro roots and signals a popstar embracing all sides of her talent, and taking total control. “I keep pushing myself to go somewhere new,” she explains.
“My writing process is to start with a beat, and programme a bassline…My production is so intertwined with my writing process, I wouldn’t be able to do it not in that driver’s seat. This is just me flexing my muscles in a different direction.”
The track is the first single to be taken from FEMME’s as of yet untitled second album, due for release in early 2018. Until then, there will be more singles and several live performances, most notable being a headline show at Heaven on 6th December.
Her tour starts on 29th November at Hope and Ruin, Brighton then the 30th at The Exchange, Bristol then 2nd December in Manchester and 3rd in Glasgow and tickets are on sale now.
