The Scottish musician was found at their home in Athens overnight, “following a sudden accident,” according to a statement their management team gave The Guardian. They were 34-years-old.
Sophie, also known as DJ Sophie and Sophie Xeon, had become beloved as much in the music world — working with the likes of Madonna and her contemporary Charli XCX — as they had in fashion. In 2019, Nicolas Ghesquière tapped the Glasgow-born artist to perform on a floor-to-ceiling screen in Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2020 runway show.
In a post on his Instagram page, Ghesquière wrote, “Thank you for sharing your light with the world Sophie, we will never forget you.”
