Thursday evening, Solange Knowles set a cool vibe as DJ on the opening of Ferragamo’s not too long ago re-designed Fifth Avenue boutique spinning new hits like Azealia Banks’ “212” and classics akin to Wayne Surprise’s “No Letting Go.” The trendy Brooklynite was dressed in head-to-toe Ferragamo, of course, pairing vibrant purple paints with a royal purple blazer, black and white splatter printed button down blouse and pink strappy sandals. How does Solange mix and match prints without ending up on our weekly worst-dressed listing? “I believe the fabrics have quite a bit to do with it,” she defined after finishing her set, “Lots of instances, if I’m matching or clashing prints, I be certain that they’re the same fabric. I’ll do silks OR cottons. It’s very uncommon that I’ll do silk prints with a cotton shirt. It form of sculpturally puts it in the same uniform. It’s instinctual.”
It appears her 7-yr-old son, Daniel, has picked up his mother’s fashionable intuition: “I buy him pieces, however he always puts them together. He likes it. We just did a Mother’s Day shoot, and he was completely sad with the choice. He was like, ‘I simply wish to be myself Mommy!’ The magazine wanted it to be really formal and he was very sad.” She continued, “He went by this really bizarre phase the place he would solely wear flannels and he would pop one collar in intentionally. On daily basis. He’s worn his clothes inside out, and once i tried to inform him, his response to me was, ‘Everybody permits you to do your fashion; no one tells you learn how to do your type.’ What are you able to say to that? You gotta let him run with it.” Solange recalls that this isn’t disimilar from her own conduct as a toddler, “I used to be very independent in my fashion early on. I wore tutus for a very very long time to any and every occasion. Luckily I evolved…”
Since Solange and Daniel have moved to New York, the stylish mother has made fairly a stir dropping her son off at college in unbelievable outfits. However, she disagrees, “My morning fashion, if you would write a fart sound, that is exactly what I appear to be.” We do not consider you, Solange… “Oh my God, I am telling you, I appear to be crap. It is perhaps as a result of there’s a variety of stuff happening that it appears like there’s a way of fashion.” She continued, “My getting dressed would not happen until properly after I’ve dropped him off at school. I get up and grab Union Jack leggings, Adidas sneakers and a sweatshirt. Then, when i get house, I get dressed for the day. I am not a morning person.”
Sounds more trendy than what your average Carroll Gardens mother would possibly put collectively. However, then again, we’re speaking concerning the 25-year-outdated sister of Beyonce, who has been within the fashion and entertainment trade her whole life. This connection explains Solange’s presence on the Ferragamo fete, which was, partly, celebrating the model’s artistic director Massimiliano Giornetti’s re-invention of the Italian trend house from one you might associate together with your extremely chic grandmother to one which recalls the coolest women about town.
