Solange is back with yet another fabulous fashion spread and this time she’s channeling the ’60s.

Since chopping off her hair and rocking a TWA, Solange has showcased her eclectic style from Brooklyn to Cape Town, and has snagged fashion spreads and glossy covers for the past year.
Although she’s got the world’s top designers on call and could probably write her own ticket in the world of haute couture, the 25-year-old says she ready to hit the stage and sing again. But this time, on her own terms.

“I don’t think there’s a need if you are able to fund it yourself and have a strong sense of development as an artist. It means you aren’t dependent on some A&R dude to position you with writers or producers or figure out your next direction.”

“There’s a lot of sexual vibes on it,” Solange explains about her new album. “I think I just finally started having good sex. This woman came up to me the other day and said, ‘You know, I think people dress a lot better when they’re in love with themselves, with other people, or with where their life is'”
