Sister Act: Catching Up With Haim

The band took a few minutes to chat with WWD before their performance at Tuesday's Chloé fete in Los Angeles.

Although half the guests at Tuesday’s Chloé fete in Los Angeles mispronounced their name, “It” girl band Haim (rhymes with “time”) now has quite a few more fashionable fans thanks to their danceable blend of folk-rock and R&B. Before their performance, Este (27), Danielle (24) and Alana (21) took a few minutes to chat with WWD.

WWD: It’s been a busy year for you, performing at Glastonbury and SXSW and releasing your first album “Days Are Gone” a month ago.
Danielle: It’s crazy. We haven’t been home in months but we now have a 10-day stretch before we go on tour in Europe to open for Phoenix.

So L.A. is home for you?
Este: We were born and raised in the [San Fernando] Valley. We kind of feel like Beverly Hillbillies.

Are you big fans of Chloé?
I made my own prom dress in 2007 after a Chloé dress. It had a heart-shaped bodice and lace.
Este: She slaved over it.

WWD: What was your first Chloé splurge?
Este: We went to the Barneys Warehouse Sale and I got a tank top that was like $200. It was a big deal for me.

WWD: What’s next on your schedule?
Alana: We’re going on tour in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. It’s called St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival and it’s us, Lorde, Warpaint, Churches and some others.
Este: It’s pretty rad because it’s almost all female headliners.

WWD: When do you write your songs?
Danielle: We try and do a little each day, whether we’re home or on the road.

WWD: All work and no play?
Alana: We still need to go to Disneyland. It’s our happy place.
