Stylin’ Solange

My favourite quotes from her re her own sense of style. I love this girl, and not in the expected sense that then it must mean I don’t like her sister, but she’s cool man. She’s just too damn cool!

Style heroes? – “My mom in the ’70s and ’80s! She was a bad bitch. Sex and the City totally jacked her steez on the camels. I have a pic of her on a camel ride in Egypt in the ’80s serving the hell out of that desert! Also, Diana Ross, The Fela Kuti Queens, Björk, ’70s-era Chaka Khan, Chloë Sevigny, ’90s Erykah Badu.”

“The shoe is very important. I can’t even fuck with you if your shoe game is slacking.”

Your nails are always a statement – “I went through a phase about two years ago where I had an extreme nail art addiction. I had British flag nails, ice cream cones, gold spikes…the whole nine yards. I still rock my nail art but with a little bit more simplicity now.”

New album? – “80s jams for sure! Early Chaka Khan, ’80s Janet Jackson, S.O.S. Band, Prince, and of course the great Michael Jackson! We went extremely natural and raw when it came down to the production. Blowing into beer bottles, playing flower vases, tapping on chairs with pencils, and even recording a house party we had for Memorial Day as a sample.”

If your style were a song? – “For sure Q-Tip’s ‘Vivrant Thang’.”

With her son, Jules
