Solange Knowles Credits Traveling for Style Inspiration

We all know that Solange is the bee’s knees of self-expression and to-die-for fashion. Effortlessly, she has risen to become a style icon for our generation. At every turn, she’s donning a new print, an on-trend color or a monster shoe that we can’t even afford to cop. The singer (we cannot wait for the album, lady!) mommy and humanitarian spoke with Vogue Italia recently to invigorating sense of fashion.

When asked what inspires her style, she says:

“Traveling, diving into other cultures face first. The colours everywhere, the colour palette of shotgun houses in New Orleans, spices in Marrakesh, nail polishes on shelf at my favourite nail shop in Brooklyn. I just left Rwanda and have never seen colours used in such natural and spectacular way in my life. I see colour before I see any other element in design.”

And traveling, she does. The star recently revealed some photos from her summer vacay in Paris with her beau, director Alan Ferguson, and son, Julez. Oh, how we love her! We’ll be traveling more, indeed.

Knowles goes on to cite her mother as a fashion icon and defines style.
