The hills are alive with the sound of infant creole cries. Solange springs into action for the photo spread that accompanies her Time Out New York cover story.
She lists Opening Ceremony as her favorite Empire State place to shop at but doesn’t have to leave the comfort of home for her current retail obsession.
“I love Net-a-Porter but it’s a gift and a curse,” she said revealing her favorite place to shop online. “It is such an addictive drug, to be able to wake up in the morning, order a pair of shoes, and they are at your door four hours later. I made the biggest mistake of introducing that to my sister, and she’s just been out of control . . . out of control. It’s just out of control.”
Memaw Muffuletta gets top honors as her style icon.
“I’m inspired by my mother from the ’70s and ’80s–she looked like a walking American Apparel ad. She definitely set the bar in terms of style. I’m also inspired by Björk, Erykah Badu and Diana Ross. I gravitate to the people who have stood the test of time; that’s why so many of my style icons are older. If you can conquer that many decades and that many trends and still look timeless and beautiful—that’s where I’d like to be.”
