“Magazine making is all about creating surprises and world firsts. Solange wearing Rick Owens on the beach lensed by Peter Lindbergh is fashion and cultural history. I am honored that Solange chose to work with AnOther Magazine for our Autumn/Winter cover. She represents a new feminine beauty that is confident, defiant and fearless. A perfect fashion cover for our time.” – Jefferson Hack, Group Editorial Director of Dazed Media
“Solange Knowles is a woman whose ability to connect with people and her own heritage is unprecedented. She is among the strongest creative voices of her generation: fiercely independent and uncompromising. We are very proud to have her on the cover of this issue, photographed by the Peter Lindbergh, styled by Robbie Spencer, and wearing clothes designed by equally independent and uncompromising fashion designers.” – Susannah Frankel, Editor-in-chief of AnOther Magazine
The print edition of the story is on stands Wednesday in London and everywhere else Thursday, September 14th.
Find quotes from Lynette Nylander’s AnOther Magazine article about Solange below:
“If ever proof were needed that Knowles is a symbol of her times it is here. Because whether through her digital platform, her live shows or her intimate albums, she offers many a sense of belonging they have never felt before, a feeling that they are not alone.”
“With cultural conflicts and intergenerational racism prevalent in American headlines, she chose to embrace the pain expressed in the media.”
“She set up shop on an old sugar plantation and used the experience to spiritually connect with her ancestry, which is rooted in the Southern state, embarking on what she called “a pursuit of truth and beauty”. The results are generational anthems that cut through in a similar way to Billie Holliday’s Strange Fruit and Nina Simone’s Young, Gifted and Black.”
“I sense that she has become a conduit for a previously unspoken message: the tiredness that black people feel every day about the lack of progress there has been since the stories told by their parents’ parents, and in these admissions she’s appealing to a black audience without alienating a white one.”
“She has compounded a personal narrative and has taken it public, creating a dialogue with [people of color] all over the world – those who not only just get it, they live it. Knowles empowers them through any indignity suffered, imbuing them with the confidence to be unapologetically black.”
