Solange Covers ELLE SA

Social networks were buzzing at the end of August when word leaked that Solange Knowles had arrived in Cape Town for an ELLE cover shoot. Well, the highly anticipated cover is officially out and I just LOVE it! And I’m not the only one, with The Huffington Post having named this cover their favourite magazine cover this year.

 The cover image was shot by Justin Polkey and styled by ELLE fashion editor Asanda Sizani, and has Solange wearing a sleeveless satin top by Tart, high-waisted shorts by Loin Cloth & Ashes and both her wrists full of extra large rope bracelets by Pichulik.

I loved the mix-match of prints… print clash #TrendAlert

ELLE editor Jackie Burger described Solange’s shoot as ‘a moment beyond our wildest dreams’, saying the team had ‘taken a “what if” and turned it into an “if you can dream it, you can do it” reality.’
More pics from behind-the-scenes of the shoot can be seen on the Elle site here.

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
