Solange Talks Music, Family, & Love For Fashion in Harper’s Bazaar April 2014
Solange Knowles is slowly becoming a fashion icon and I for one love it. The creative consultant for PUMA, who is currently spending a lot of her time here in Louisiana (she’s been in New Orleans since the end of November) is featured in the April 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
In an intriguing spotlight article entitled, “The Cool Girl on the Block,” SoLo speaks about her past looks, following in the footsteps of her big sister Beyoncé, her son Julez and much more.
Take a look at a few excerpts from the interview and her colorful photo spread with Julia Noni as well.
On her past looks:
“You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts. I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn’t quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work.”
On following Beyoncé’s musical footsteps:
“My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist. They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”
On her son Julez:
“Music is certainly not what I have in mind for him. I’m constantly trying to push him to work at the U.N., or be a diplomat. I try to convince him by explaining that he wouldn’t have to wait in lines at the airport, and that he can park anywhere.”
On being called a tastemaker:
“I’ve always had an annoying relationship with the term ‘tastemaker,’ but it’s been a defining part of my career for the past couple of years.”
