Solange is finding ‘good’ in the year of 2020.
Solange covers the digital cover of Harper’s Baazar to discuss her year of 2020 of both destructive and transformative times during this year’s unsettling pandemic.
In this cover story spread, Solange self-styles herself all-independent, majority-BIPOC designers; she tapped friend and collaborator Naima Green to help photograph her in isolation; and for her cover story, she shares a series of powerful personal essays and poems that lay bare the private challenges and collective pain, the hard-won triumphs, and the joy that propels us all ever-forward.
“Stillness is goodness. Ghost catch up. There’s nowhere to run, and all the voices you’ve been hushing, soothing, and cooing yell at you like loud children demanding answers. The ones you’ve been saying you’d tend to when the time is right tell you there is no other time. Then your body follows. And for a minute there, things can get hard. And every day you make a choice. To honor, listen, and live.”SOLANGE / Harper’s Baazar
