Earlier this week, Solange Knowles released the video for “Losing You”, the lead single from her upcoming third studio album.
The visual stunner, shot in Cape Town, was directed by Melina Matsoukas.
I was sooo looking forward to the video and watched it several times as I couldn’t get enough of the deliciously eclectic cocktail of colours, prints and patterns styled by Ty Hunter and Solange herself.
Visit Solange’s blog to see some of her inspirations and also FADER, to read a beautiful interview with her about the concept, the Sapeurs featured in the clip, the casting (*biiig applause*) and her journey to filming “Losing You”.
What a fashion ride! I wasn’t able to ID all the pieces but I still believe this is the most detailed version of the “Losing You” fashion credits you can find right now.
So after several hours of work and without any further introduction, here they come. Exclusively. For. You!
Red and white polka dot shirt, dove grey bermuda shorts and red and white plaid double breasted cropped blazer from Moschino Resort 2012 collection, accessorized with Mailbox Leather Flat Shoes from ASOS Collection.
